From can to tulip. Pours dark opaque brown with a creamy looking one finger khaki head. Aroma of nutty coffee, roasted malt, and ashiness. Nose is a little thin. Flavor is roasted makes and a hint of earthy coffee. Really this falls a little flat for me at first and was very thin for an imperial porter. Seems to pick up as I sip through and might be better on the warmer side. Medium carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Meh, not bad but won’t return to this one.

Pours dark brown and from a vigorous pour I got a tall ample head of mocha colored foam that fell to some sticky lace. Just a little light around the edges makes it look like cola. Nose is delicious. Coffee, chocolate and dark caramel malt. Smells roasty and cold. Malt is prominent and sweet in the nose but hides a bit of bread. I can’t wait to taste it. Oh delight! Coffee, smooth chocolate some warming alcohol and little toast. Mouthfeel is thin and creamy. There is good earth and a little bitter from the hops and a touch of dark fruit on the back palate that makes this seem very decadent. The coffee is extremely well done and not the slightest bit burnt. The cocoa is like silk up next to it. The alcohol is a little too prominent to call it smooth but it rounds out with hints of vanilla as it warms. The bread in this is mild and really well done. Truly great.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a Fort Myers Brewing Company snifter. Best before July 10, 2013 printed on bottom of can.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, almost black color with a 2 finger foamy grey-tan head. Decent lacing.

Smell: Mildly sweet cocoa and coffee with piney hops in the background.

Taste: Sweet cocoa and a touch of molasses up front followed by roasted coffee and a nice woody character in the middle before ending with a high amount of bitter piney hops at the finish. Aftertaste is roasted, very bitter and quite long-lasting.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with a fairly high amount of carbonation. Not quite as thick and creamy as I would have wanted. The hop oils really coat the mouth.

Drinkability: Good drinkability. This is a sipper, but it's one you'll enjoy until the last drop.

Overall: Very good beer overall. I like what they were going for with this one. While I don't think it's a home run, it's still a beer I would definitely recommend trying, especially to the hopheads out there.
