Pours really thick and black in color with a thin tan head that dissipates to a film over the top.
Smell is pretty good. There are big chocolate malt that is forward along with a fair amount of charcoal roasted aroma. There is a lighter creamy aroma and dark fruit aroma.
Taste is pretty good and follows the nose. Lots of chocolate malt is forward along with a moderate charcoal bitterness. There is a slight creamy flavor that've detectable through the chalky charcoal bitterness.
Mouthfeel is huge. Really big body and thick feel. Huge malty stickiness is balanced with big amounts of charred bitterness. A sipping beer for sure.

22 oz. bottle, Batch #320/321 printed on the label. Another new beer to me from Pipeworks, this one describes itself as an imperial porter. Found this beauty at the local Binny's.
Poured into a Duvel tulip, per the death of my snifter.
A - It pours a dark dark dark mahogany black colored body. Opaque in the glass with about a finger of dark bubbly mocha head. Reddish hues when held to the light. Scattered bubbly lacing.
S - The aroma has a lot going on. Initially, I got a lot of musty yeasty sort of funk, but it gives way to layers of cocoa, chocolate, cream, vanilla, & roasted nuttiness.
T - Taste follows the nose - powdery chocolate / cocoa, fudge, vanilla, coffee bean roast, some yeast presence, mild alcohol warmth, indistinct dark fruitiness. Very delicious.
M - The feel is sticky, smooth, & creamy. Lots of chocolate / roast lingering on the palate. Medium-full bodied with good carbonation.
Overall, another wonderful and interesting beer from Pipeworks. These guys make some of the best stouts I've ever had, so it obviously makes sense they would be able to do a porter well. Highly recommended; they should consider brewing this again.
