look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottled 5/21/14.

Appearance: totally black with a thick finger of rich, frothy dark-tan foam. Very good.

Smell: extremely rich aroma of chocolate, malt and rich, dark fruits: raspberry, cherry, date, raisin; it's like a Belgian quad and a porter got together. This seriously appeals to me.

Taste: much like the aroma, it's extremely rich and fruity. The same dark fruits are there, along with chocolate and a very impressive smoothness for a beer this strength. Two words: more please.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a big carbonation and very good creaminess indeed. Shazam!

Overall: there are few beers as spot-on calculated to appeal to my taste. I love this.

Pours a deep dark cola brown with a thinner beige head atop that doesn't last long,aromas of dark fruit and brown sugar really jump out at ya,sweet alcohol and a faint nuttiness there as well.Dark fruit and a whiskey-like flavor up front with minimal roast and more molasses and brown sugar sweetness in the end,it's all of 11.5% here.It's big and pretty sweet but I like it,sweet but not overly so it's a great sipper.

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.

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.

A: Nearly jet black with a light brown and foamy head. Like being out in the country, in a forest, on a cloudy night. Dark man, real dark.

S: Fresh tar, charcoal, and booze. If you ever worked or lived near a coffee roaster then you'll get the nose on this beer. Just dirty nasty char funk.

T: Pardon the redundant obviousness of this description. It has this funky fermented quality. And for anyone who likes kimchi you'll know what I mean. It also has this sour wine thing going on that makes my head spin. You'll also get the typical coffee and chocolate notes.

M: Sticky with a low, but lingering, carbonation. Surprisingly, not super heavy for an 11.5.

O: Lil' B is a very sexy beer. There is so much going with this beauty it's hard to come up with a complete and worthy summation. It's incredibly aggressive whilst retaining a refined elegance.

If if you see her, don't hesitate. Make your move or she'll end up between the sheets of another suitor.
