2014-11-23. Review entered from notes.
12oz bottle poured into a little plastic hotel cup. Bottle code is 17061434B10154, but I have no idea what that means. I would guess it's either best by or bottled on 2014-06-17.

Pours black, with a small beige head that fades very fast. Not much carbonation. Smell is rich dark malt, black cherry and black licorice. Maybe overripe plum.

Taste is very powerful vanilla (to me -- my wife didn't think so). Sweet, sort of molassesy.

Mouthfeel is too still. Overall, not bad. Too sweet, too still. Too much vanilla.

A - nearly flat low head. Dark cola brown. Instantly disappearing beige head 3.25

S - soda. Ginger and cola. Chocolate vanilla 3

T - vanilla cream soda that one day saw a beer in a magazine. This is not beer. 2

M - very soda like. Not creamy not slick. Just like a cream soda 2

O - For an "imperial robust porter" there is very little about this beer that is imperial or robust or porter like aside from the color. I chose this just wanting to tick Ohio off my list of beer states. Won't buy this again. 2.25

Poured from a brown bottle this dark brown porter had no head and little to no lace.
At first the vanilla reaches the nose followed by a slight espresso/ chocolate note.
Espresso and vanilla caress the palate making this enjoyable to drink.

Smooth imperial porter with some coffee/chocolate/vanilla flavor. Excellent after work beer for the fall/winter!
