Dec 2013 bottle. Opened Aug 2014.

A - Spot on for a porter. Black with a thin rim of medium brown highlights. Rice retention on a creamy tan-khaki head. Low lace.

S - Nice smooth nose. Oatmeal, raisin, touch of booze, pumpernickel bread, biscuits, caramel.

T - Whoa, unbelievably smooth. Fantastic integration. Huge roast into creamy caramel and raisins. Sharp wood and bold booze blend seamlessly into the center of the profile, balancing out the sweetness. Oatmeal, cream, and dark toasted bread finish.

M - Amazing: thick, smooth, and creamy. Edge of Scotch on the backend.

O - The Russian imperial porter of imperial porters. Outstanding.

I am not sure why this one isn't rated higher. This was my first 'imperial porter' so I am not sure what that means as compared to a Imperial Stout but I will go with it...

A: Looks like an Imperial Stout, super dark with a nice dark brown head. This really was a great beer to break in my new KBS glassware.

S: Amazing and full of sweet chocolate with hints of plum. This must be why they are calling this an Imperial Porter.

T: Taste follows the nose, this beer is sweet but since I don't love sweet stouts, it wasn't too bad when compared. The taste didn't have the super dark taste to it that I would expect in an Imperial Stout, just a tad lighter.

M: Thick and viscous, nothing to complain about

O: This was such a good beer. For being 11.5%, I was floored at the lack of hotness it had. Only after it had warmed for a while did I get any kind of burn. I highly recommend trying this one, I hope I can score some more of this soon.

The beer is a viscous black. Great aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and dark fruit. Tasted of dark coffee, some sweet chocolate, and raisins. A little bit of an alcohol burn.
Great beer.

12 oz. bottle poured into a mug. Very dark brown grading into black, with a light dappling of mocha brown head. Aroma is decidedly roasted, black coffee and light smoke with some sweeter toffee and raisin overtones, even a hint of orchard fruit and tangy English hops. Palate is equal parts roast and sweet, dark chocolate and day old black coffee, brittle toffee, rum-soaked raisins, brown bread, a hint of caraway, and a rather pleasing floral alcohol warmth. Low carbonation and quite viscous, heavy ... Finishes bitter and a tad medicinal, vague hop echoes and that same astringent taste that lingers for a while after your morning coffee. Minimal ash. This is hearty fare indeed, well-crafted and smooth sailing despite the potent flavors involved. I get why this brew is used as the base for things like Imperial Biscotti Break and the like. I think it stands up very well in an unadulterated form.
