3.9/5 rDev -1%
The pour is an extremely dark porter that more closely resembles a stout. A porter will typically allow a little hint of light through. This one has zero light making it through. The head is a nice foamy tan color that is thick and rick with a slow settle that leaves large holed persistent lacing down the glass.
The nose is hinting to bread with a subtle hopping and sweet malty that is blanketed with a tiny bit of smokiness.
The taste is very strong and bitter hops that ride on a subdued malt bed that has the matching smokiness that one would expect. The finish is rather bitter and not terribly clean. This is good, but not great.
The mouthfeel is just right for an imperial porter with a nice coating feeling that allows the palate to bathe int he flavor without being cloying.
Overall this is a drinkable Imperial Porter but is not my favorite. There are definitely others I would prefer to drink. That said it is a fine example and definitely worthwhile to try.

This stuff tastes, smells and feels really strong. It's very manly. You should get a bottle at a bar and just leave it on the table all night so people will know how cool you are. Tear off the label and bring it home with you.
This beer is GOOD but it's strong. After two 22's you will not be cool even though you think you are and girls won't like you because you'll be really loud and arrogant. Take it easy with this stuff.
