The beer pours a pitch black color with a thick frothy tan head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is great. It has a nice toffee scent along with a solid chocolate and roasted malt aroma. It's rich with some sweetness and a slight roasted feel. The taste is great as well. It has a dry roasted malt flavor with some excellent chocolate notes. It goes down easy with a bit of toffee sweetness. The alcohol is well hidden. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a very good Imperial porter. It's overflowing with malt character and is highly drinkable.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Russian River tulip glass.

A: Very dark brown and nearly opaque. Has a thin tan head that fades fairly quickly and quite a bit of visible carbonation.

S: A mix of dark cacao and coffee primarily. Some tobacco, dark roasted malts and roasty bitterness.

T: Rich cacao with a nice bitter component. Less coffee, roasted maltiness, a touch nutty. Light roast and hop bitterness lasts into the hang.

M: The body is a touch on thin side for an "Imperial" porter. Average carbonation sensation and the alcohol presence is nicely integrated.

O: This was pretty good. Very roast-forward porter. Mouthfeel was a little thinner than I'd prefer, but an easy drink.
