I love porters. I love imperial porters. I did not love this beer. Not sure why my palette deviates so much from the general perception of this beer.

For whatever reason, it tasted like a scotch ale to me.

Had it as part of a flight at Grill Next Door (Haverhill MA).

This is a 2011 Vintage.

The beer comes in an almost black color with a mocha head.

The aroma has some soy umami, a lightly roasted malt, and chocolate.

The flavor follows with chocolate, some coffee, a good amount of soy and roasted malt. A well balanced creamy porter flavor with a medium to full smooth mouthfeel.

A well done and balanced imperial porter.
