Good beer and not too boozy.

For an Imperial porter, this beer is not so offensive when it comes to alcohol presence. Pours a dark beer. Nice foam. Smells like vanilla and coffee. Little alcohol present on the nose. Taste is pretty good. Not a very bitter beer, lots of vanilla and sweets, coffee is present. I like it because it is not boozy.

Poured Victory at Sea into a Belgian Tulip.

A - Pours black with a tinge of ruby highlights with a half finger of mocha head.

S - Vanilla, booze, on first sniff. On further investigation getting some light roasted malts with more sweetness.

T - Bitter coffee with smooth vanilla on initial taste. Mid palate getting more vanilla and bitter coffee. Finally on the aftertaste getting light roasted malts with more vanilla and coffee.

M - Smooth medium mouthfeel, medium to light carbonation.

O - Its a really good Porter, just overhyped in my opinion. Cheers!
