Defenitely one of my favorite porters. first purchased an 06 vintage and drank all of mine right away. it was smooth at first but i didnt really think it was anything too amazing. my buddy irishevans was smart enough to stash a four pack in my cellar for a year and was kind enough to have one with me a few days ago. This porter has aged as gracefully as any i have had. after only one year the flavor and thickness came bursting out, and the sweet malt flavors lingered on the lips. roasted flavors and dark chocolate sailed right down my throat like a glass of water. one of the most drinkable imperial porters i have ever had. drink a four pack and you will make a beast of yourself and get rid of the pain of being a man.

Poured from a bottle into a Gulden Draak snifter.
A: Jet black. Pours a creamy tan brown head that lasts the entire glass. Lacing throughout as well.
S: Not giving off any extreme scents. Picking up the malt with a little bit of the chocolate and sweet caramel. Reminiscent of an Oyster Stout. Also picking up some fresh citrusy hops.
T: Very hop forward with a wave of initial bitterness. Mellows out to a perfect balance of maltiness and chocolate. At the end you're left with a smokey malty finish that makes you want more.
M: About as thick as a Porter can get without encroaching into Stout territory. I usually don't like the thinness of Porters but this one has enough flavor to back it up.
O: Very surprised with this beer, perfectly balanced. Will purchase many, many more times.
