look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
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.

Inky black color and lets no light pass. No head and has a flat appearance.
Not much to the aroma. Smells like a tootsie roll and light roast.
Same with the flavor, but slightly hopped and gives off a dark berry flavor.
Great mouthfeel. Very smooth and creamy.
Good beer, but not much depth. The mouthfeel is the highlight.
