A-dark brown black color with a nice light brown head and good lacing

S-dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, bourbon, earthy

T-dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, raisins, figs, bourbon, coffee, light char, molasses

F-medium to full body with moderate carbonation, smooth and creamy

O-great range of flavors and well-balanced, a tad on the sweet side for me, but a terrific Imperial Porter nonetheless
