22oz bottle, split. Thrilled that Ballast Point is delivering beers to Oregon

A: Lightless mahogany with a rim of cappuccino head. Not much in the way of legs, surprisingly, but I’ll manage.

N: The vanilla strikes first, but it’s soft and almost supple. coffee and dark chocolate firm up the base, and there’s a hint of molasses and similar flavors to oak. I get a whiff of charcoal, too.

T: Very bitter like fresh-pressed espresso mixed with some smoked wood. Malty sweetness and vanilla do a good job of rounding this out so that it’s not one-dimensional. Hop greenness also rears its head. Hits multiple parts of the tongue.

M: Oily with a medium-heavy mouthfeel. Alcohol is well-hidden.

O: A really well-built Imperial Porter that never allows any one of its elements to overwhelm the others. I’ll be buying this one on a regular basis.
