bought this with many other Imperials over the weekend. I was really looking forward to trying this, as the Sea Monster was awesome.

A- dark dark color with nice little bubbles of mocha colored foam

S- smell is great, however, maybe a bit too much coffee. as it warms up, the porter/vanilla comes through

T- overall disappointed because of the hype i gave it. I love coffee, but this one is overpowered with coffee. a bit bitter, lots of chocolate and sweetness, but a bit too bitter and coffee flavored for me. the alcohol is not too hot, which is nice.

m- smooth and good. coffee-like
overall- as i said, a great brew, but a bit too much coffee for me. i believe Sea Monster is much better, however, sea monster is a different style, so not a fair comparison.

A: Dark brown but ruby at the edges. It's a porter so it can get away with this. No head.

S: Heavy roasted coffee. Very thick. Fairly singular.

T: Vanilla, roast, chocolate, and booze. A touch too roasty perhaps. The aftertaste is like I've been drinking all day.

M: Medium bodied behind a thick initial blast of thickness. The roast brings it up a touch.

D: Solid beer but more like a stout than a porter.
