look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: very dark brown, not quite opaque. Some cola highlights. Modest tan head.
Smell: subtle vanilla, but up front. Not a lot else happening but a nice nose.
Taste: much like the nose. Vanilla is prominent but not overdone.
Overall: very smooth. Easy drinker. Doesn't knock your socks off but well done.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Nearly jet black with a thin light brownish head that fades to a thin, splotchy lacing.

S: Definite vanilla bean up front, touches of nuttiness as well, some chocolate too. Lots of roast and a touch of coffee and very subtle alcohol come through for a well rounded aroma.

T: Vanilla, light coffee and a bit of chocolate dominate, a bit of nuttiness and roast flavor come through as well.

M: Smooth and creamy but a bit light bodied for calling it an imperial porter. Still enjoyable.

O: A nice and tasty porter that may benefit with a bit more body, but overall is very good. Grab some if you can get it!
