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.
