lot going on here..
First sip got a coffee, cola type feel, as it warmed the cola taste faded and replaced by bitter coffee, in a good way
coca nibs in the front lingering black coffee on the end , chewy mouth feel makes this a really good porter.

Thanks to Daemose for sending this one! Poured from bomber into a Russian River tulip glass.

A: Very dark - essentially black - and opaque, with a big two-finger fluffy tan head that holds up quite well. Fairly low visible carbonation.

S: Rich roasted malts, very dark chocolate, some creamy sweetness, and bits of coffee and leather.

T: Follows the nose quite closely. Rich cacao, roasted malts with moderate bitter character, leather and tobacco, and almost a lactose sweetness and creaminess. A touch of hop bitterness near the end accompanies the finishing bitterness from the roasted malts.

M: Nice heavy body consistent with the "Imperial Porter" moniker, and a thick round mouthfeel. Alcohol content seems fairly restrained, and carbonation sensation on the low side, but not at all flat.

O: I thought this was pretty darn tasty. A nice porter with big roasted bitterness and well put-together. There's not much different here to make it stand out, but what it does, it does well.

Dark brown beer with cascading brown-tan head. Deep chocolate and toffee notes and a mellow sweet finish. Silky smooth finish and the alcohol is concealed nicely.
