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.
