This beer pours very little head and is a jet black in color looks great.
the smell is coffee with a slight hint of vanilla.strong smell stings the nose.
now the taste is where its at with this beer,to call it complex is a huge understatement.first its the coffee then the vanilla hits but only slightly,while all the long tasting like a porter.outstanding taste,top notch.
the mouthfeel is kinda thick but not too much as to turn you off from your next drink.i would call it drinkable for what it is.
overall this is my first time drinking an imperial porter of any type and i am highly impressed with it.i like porters and imperial stouts to begin with but ballast point has got a true world class beer here,complex and rich yet drinkable,its what an imperial porter should taste like imo,.cant wait to try more from ballast point.

This poured the color of midnight at a bottom of a well, with an espresso-crema cap of foam.
The aroma held layers of dark chocolate and roasted coffee, roasted malts, a hint of vanilla. It’s a sipper, with a smoothly warming flavor of a sweetly bitter espresso with cacao and vanilla, and just a touch of booziness at the end. This is a big beer but so enjoyable!
