4.09/5 rDev -1.9%
From 09/22/13 notes. Picked up a 12 oz. bottle of this a few weeks ago in Ardmore, PA at The Beer Shoppe for $3.50. Poured into a snifter. Bottled on 03/21/13.
a - Pours a pitch black color with one inch of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks like a really nice stout or porter.
s - Smells of roasted malts, milk chocolate, vanilla, light coffee, some toasted malts, and light caramel malts. Nice nose, very roasty and some really nice sweet chocolate to it.
t - Tastes of roasted malts, milk chocolate, burnt malts, vanilla, toasted malts, espresso, bitter dark chocolate, light sugar and caramel, and alcohol. Nice taste that follows the nose, but the alcohol is definitely there too. You can certainly tell this is a big porter.
m - Full body and low carbonation. Very thick and smooth. Some alcohol to it; not a lot considering the ABV, but enough that you can tell this is over 10% ABV.
o - Overall I thought this was a very good, strong porter. It's no where near the Aun Mas Cafe Jesus and Imperial Biscotti Break beers, but another good big porter/stout. Lots of roasted notes and chocolate, worth checking out.

On-tap at Beachwood I,
A: Pours black with a medium firm tan head, some good lace.
S: Lots of dark chocolate, soy, with a hint of dark fruit.
T: Dominated by dark chocolate and roasted malt. Sweet and flavourful, almost a dessert beer. Definite sweet raisin component.
M: Rich, thick, in-your-face. Soft carbonation, never really cloying which was nice.
O: A very good big porter/stout. I don't know the price in bottles, but this is certainly a good effort.

A big, sweet interpretation of a porter. Tastes like dark chocolate covered cherries with a bit of spice on the finish that gives you a little tingle- cayenne like. Definitely a bit sweet, but in a liqueur sort of way. This would be nice in front of a roaring fire after a nice winter meal, or perhaps as a post-priandal beverage with the missus? In any case it does remind me of a box of chocolates. Not an every day drink, but one with a well-done very particular taste. Very smooth and silky as well. Interesting.

4.38/5 rDev +5%
A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with minimal amounts of gentle visible carbonation. The beer poured with essentially no head, just a partial thin dark tan ring of bubbles around most of the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing is observed. Kind of looks like soy sauce when it pours.
S: Moderate aromas of chocolate and some lighter notes of sweet dark fruits.
T: Rich with lots of roasted malt flavors and chocolate. Lighter notes of dark fruits but not overly sweet (not quite as sweet as other beers in the style).
M: Light to medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: Alcohol is extremely well hidden in this beer as you can detect none of the 11.5% ABV at all. Enjoyable but definitely a beer you need to take your time drinking, so drink it slow and enjoy.

(Served in a globe)
A- The jet black body has a thin deep cocoa tan head that fades to a ring.
S- The clean aroma has hints of inky black bitterness with some dark graham malt notes coming through with as it opens.
T- The mellow black roasted malt with a dry nougat hint in the finish with a touch of sweetness. There is a black bitterness that hints in the back of the throat and stays. There are some dark burnt toffee notes coming through as it warms.
M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a slight slippery texture that turns into a gentle fizz. There is no alcohol heat.
O- There are some nice hints of malt with some complexity but they are very faint and only come through when it is really warm in the last 3 oz.

Pours a five-finger, thick brown head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Nose is chocolate and molasses and flavor is smooth chocolate and molasses malt. Higher ABV is hidden. Decent Imp porter. $4.99 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, MA. Bottled Feb 19, 2014.

APPEARANCE: Pours a oily dark brown color with a tan head and sheet of brownish lace. Looks like the heavy hitter it is.
SMELL: Roasted, char, quite smokey.
TASTE: Chocolate, roast, coffee, some booze. Big chocolate and general malty ness. Fair bitterness and heat is not too strong
FEEL: Full bodied with a smooth and creamy texture.
OVERALL: This is a damn fine Stout.

Shared by RussianDragon. Thanks Dave. Sitting on the porch in the springtime sippin' on Lil' B.
the beer is near black with over an inch of foamy beige head. The aroma brings coca, bitter chocolates, coffee, dark roast. Taste is solid. I'm a fan. Big robust beer and well balanced. Full bodied and palate coating, yet easy drinking. We had no problem finishing the bottle. Very tasty.
