Jeez, i love this stuff. I think it's one of my favorite porters.
Pours a very deep mohogany that pretty much only shows when you hold it up to the light. Otherwise it's a pool of tantalizing darkness with a solid finger of oatmeal colored foamy head.
Aromas of cocoa, toffee with some faint figs and a little burnt toast tease my nose. Very fragrant aromatic.
The taste is just a symphony of delicous flavors. Butterscotch, caramel and percolating coffee first bless my tongue followed by a little bitterness on roasted malt. Quite the delight.
Smooth and a little silky on the tongue with solid carbonation make this a nice feeling on the palate. This is a porter you want to always have in stock for those rainy days, and heck, sunny days too with all other days in between. Friggen amazing this one!

A - Deep, dark brown. Sloshes around in the glass nicely with a solid head.
S - Burned sugar, char, peat and roasted malt. Could be fuller.
T - Char, mildly toasted malt. Roastiness and burned caramel. Unfortunately I can't help finding regular porters taste watered down compared to their Imperial brethren.
M - Smooth, and appropriately carbonated. A little thin and watery.
O - An easy-drinking and very sessionable porter which I'd gladly opt for if having a few pints with friends at a pub.
Serving type: on-tap
