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.
