4.38/5 rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Brooklyn chalice. Bottled on date of 02/19/14.
Appearance: Pours pitch black with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of tan head that fades into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing.
Smell: A roasty and fairly sweet dark malt forward aroma with hints of chocolate, coffee, and smoke. Upfront roasted barley malts with hints of dark chocolate, coffee, biscuit, burnt toast, dough, caramel, toffee, yeast, and smoked malt. Sweet hints of molasses. Light hints of anise spice. Hops are very light. Some hints of booze as well. A pretty good roasty aroma.
Taste: Like it smells, a dark roasty and sweet dark malt driven taste with big notes of chocolate and coffee. Big taste of dark roasted barley malts with upfront notes of dark chocolate, coffee beans, burnt toast, biscuit, cookie dough, caramel, toffee, smoked malt, and yeast. Sweet taste of molasses and brown sugar. Light notes of anise licorice spice. Subtle hops in the background. A very good roasty taste.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, slick, and slightly syrupy. Some booze heat is noticeable but not overly strong.
Overall: A very good imperial version of a porter. Very much like a solid imperial stout with a good dark taste of chocolate, coffee, and some smoke.

4.15/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Pitch black pour with a thin dark brown head, quick to sticky lacing.
Smell of dark malts, black olives, touch of cream, booze, cherries, plum, cocoa bean, faint coffee, lots of stuff, but doesn't really scream out anything in particular.
Taste is something else. Huge boozy dark fruit character, with big raisin, juicy figs, slightly sour cherries (that clearly remind of nice sherry), thrown into rich milky chocolate with caramel and molasses. Smokey roasted coffee beans and dark malts start peeping, backed by huge vanilla, some licorice, faint cinnamon and anise. American hops bring faint citrus and a green note way in the back, closer to the finish. Finishes with a mild bitterness.
Smooth and creamy, nice body, but the booze is a real hit, very strong from start to finish. Rich aftertaste with that dark fruity goodness and the minimum of roast.
Leaving the bad-handled booze aside, this is a great tasty... well, i'd say Russian imperial stout, but that doesn't really matter. Handle with care.
