Had this on 2013-06-23 at the Fridge in Lancaster, PA
A - Opaque dark browe with a 1-finger tan head and great lacing.
S - Rich dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, expresso, vanilla.
T - Much like the smell with the addition of char, light molasses, lots of dark chocolate. The vanilla is present but in check. There's some sweetness for balance. Roasted and hop bitterness.
M - Thick body and light medium carbonation. Prickly and creamy.
O - This is a very fine imperial porter. Reminds me of a Founders Imperial Stout.
Serving type: on-tap

Enjoyed a bomber of this with a friend on brew day. Poured into tulip glass.
Who says you can’t drink at 8am? That’s why it has coffee in it, right?
This beer pours as you might expect a porter to. Dark and rich. Just enough off white head to let you know it is well conditioned. The aromas are all there of the coffee and roast malt. Great mouth feel. I am not usually a big fan of porters but this one was exceptionally smooth and well balanced. The coffee was noticeably present but in fantastic balance with the malt sweetness and vanilla creaminess. Im glad we only had the one bomber of this or we would have been drunk by 10am.
This is one of those beers that you have to get your hands on and try with some friends.
