look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - 4 - Nice dark brown/black beer with a big mocha head on it, leaves nice lacing.
S - 4.25 - Roasty coffee, espresso, chocolate, oatmeal.
T - 4.5 - Chocolate, coffee, espresso, cafe mocha, vanilla, cream, oatmeal. Very wholesome and smooth. Reminds me of Bell's Expedition Stout.
M - 4.5 - very nice thick mouthfeel, like a chocolate milkshake, alc is completely covered. Aftertaste is roasty malts, coffee, and milk chocolate.
O - 4.5 - Great imperial porter! I think what some other people said about the alcohol taste may be changed due to this being the 2013 vintage. But then again maybe not. It's a great imperial porter, with no harsh bitter or alcohol flavors whatsoever.

4.15/5  rDev +3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Vintage from 2010. 12oz poured into an oversized tulip.

A - Black but not opaque. Small cap of tan head from a strong pour. Spotty lacing.

S - Rich with an alcohol nose. Vanilla, graham cracker, toffee, caramel, oak, licorice, dark chocolate. Wonderfully bright. No big roasty qualities.

T - Tremendous vanilla and light caramel flavors upfront. Some graham cracker-like sweetness midway and finishes with an astringent flavor. Aftertaste is reminiscent of Brandy.

M - Medium-full body, medium-light carbonation, semi-dry.

O - The aroma hinted at more than the listed ABV but the flavor was warm yet easy to drink. Wildly complex at a relatively low ABV from Imperial status.

Recommendation - Buy a couple 6-packs to store and drink long after you've forgotten about them.
