Now that is one nice looking beer. Tastes amazing. Real smooth chocolate tones with a boozy kind of vanilla thing going on as well. Feels great going down too. Super smooth. This is deadly drinkable. Kill me softly, please? Could have dealt with a lot more of this one. But the liver can only take so much, yeah?

I liked this beer! Had 10oz in a snifter glass. This is a black, opaque beer, even in strong sunlight - so dark it doesn't run to red at the edges. The head is a very dark tan to light brown which slowly faded to a thin covering around the glass and left extremely complex lacing. Smells strongly of coffee, with notes of cocoa and caramel, maybe some cereal. First taste is of caramel malt and dark chocolate. Coffee comes through in the middle and becomes stronger the warmer the brew gets. Alchohol is artfully hidden, but watch out, this will take you down. It has the body to match it's flavor, thick and chewy. Lightly carbonated, this goes down way to easy. This tastes like you'd think an imperial porter should. I'd like to go back before it runs out.

A - Don't think you can make an imperial porter look any better than is. Black as night, good viscosity. Brown head leaves absolutely beautiful sheets of fine lacing on the sides of the glass.

S - Cocoa, caramel malts, just a hint of roast. There's some nice coffee in there as well.

T - Rich and sweet. There is a lot of perfectly blended caramel and rich chocolate in this one. The end finishes with some good coffee which comes out a bit more as the beer warms up. Very rich and fairly decadent. Great flavor for a 10.6% beer.

M - Full bodied, light carbonation that is about perfect for this beer.

O - Loved this beer, and ordered a second one. It's slightly on the sweet side, which I don't normally prefer, but the taste is so good it works. I hope they stick this in barrels, I think Jack Daniels would be a great choice, and this beer would hold up well.

Black in color. Fully opaque. Served with a moderate bit of frothy deep tan colored head. No lacing. Aroma is chock full of deeply roasted malts, and coffee with vanilla and citrus hops rounding it out. Flavor is deep dark malts. Raisin, brown sugar and a moderate dark malt sweetness. The coffee and a bit of coffee bitterness before a light blend of citrus hops. Full body. Mild to
Moderate bitterness. Slick, mildly sweet, and lower carbonation. Overall very impressive.
