Poured in a Stone Imperial Pint glass. Dark coffee color with a 2F head.

Coffee, vanilla, and lemon wafting from the head.

The mouth feel is moderate.

The balance of coffee-vanilla-lemon in the taste is impressive. The
coffee and vanilla don't overwhelm as in other beers- they are blended well
into the taste profile.

Overall an excellent Imperial Porter: fresh with an Enjoy By Date
