Incredible imperial porter, probably the best I've ever tasted. Had it on tap at the Iron Monkey in Jersey City, which is an excellent beer bar, by the way.

High alcohol content, but it's masked so well by the chocolate, coffee, vanilla and sweet malts. Just an overall great flavor. It's smooth, but has a nice long and sweet finish that was just dry enough to make me consider having a second.

Overall, this is just an outstanding stout. Great for a snowy winter day or after a meal. Wish I had bought some and tried more when I lived in San Diego. I've never once seen Ballast Point for sale or on tap anywhere in Colorado, which is a damn shame.
