The nose is really heavy. Dark chocolate, dark fruit, grapes, dates, roasted malts, alcohol and coffee. Taste is just as big and heavy. Roasted malts, coffee, dates, raisins, alcohol, chocolate, a bit more coffee and just a hint of a lighter fruitiness like cherries. The mouthfeel is heavy, thick and robust but still pretty heavily carbonated for this type of beer. Its awesome and I think the one I have aging will do so very well. The alcohol and heat should get muted a bit and the roasty, chocolate notes should come out a bit more. The only improvement I could really ask for here is less heat though.
This is definitely more like an imperial stout that any kind of porter I have ever had.
