4.45/5 rDev +6.7%
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.

This is my first review so give me slack
Lil B' is a nice imperial porter with a strong kick.
Appearance: pitch black with a dirty brown head.
Aroma: mix of chocolate, fruit, with a light smokey character
Taste: Chocolate and malts are the most noticeable, with the taste of alcohol definitely noticeable. Can't tell what the fruit is but has a sweet fruit taste to it as well.
Feel: Creamy, velvety texture with light carbonation.
I really like this porter, has a nice kick to it that you feel from the beginning and only continues as you drink more, while not having an overpowering taste of alcohol you would expect in an 11.5% beer

4.15/5 rDev -0.5%
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.
