Notes/Commercial Description:
In today’s fast paced world, it is often difficult to stop racing around and enjoy the good things in life that hard-working people deserve. For those who search for this long lost sense of leisure that is reminiscent of Southern living, slow down and kick back with Dan’l Webster. Like the racing frog from Mark Twain’s short story, this Imperial Porter will take you out of the race with its intensely heavy weight. With just a kiss of a new, experimental hop that has notes of orange, chocolate and coconut, and then aged on soft maple wood, this thick and satisfying porter is a great way to forget about the race, getting you one step closer to winning the marathon of life.

Poured out into a tulip, gorgeous mocha head. Maybe a bit of cocoa in the smell. Drinks super smooth! Wow. Was expecting this to be a classic Hopping Frog hop bomb of a stout, but this is so well balanced. A nice sweetness really mellows out the overall flavor. Medium mouth feel. Solid.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

This is truly the best porter I've ever had.

The appearance is what you expect. Incredibly dark and you can't see through it. Caramel head about 1 finger high. Usually when I see that color head I know I'm in for a treat.

Smell was fine. Nothing new or spectacular for the style. Just what I expect from a CCB beer of this type.

Taste was great. Incredibly deep with lots of chocolate and some orange peel. Slight maple wood taste at the end.

Mouthfeel is where this beer and every other CCB beer shines. It's thick and creamy. This is why I continue to buy their stouts and porters.

Overall it's a great beer and I wish I could buy this more often. I was surprised to see it in my local store as it was released a while ago and I slept on it not thinking much of it. I would recommend this beer to anyone.
