Nearly black yet dark brown. Mocha head. Consistent lacing down the glass.

Lots of coffee and some chocolate in the nose along with some sea salt.

Lots of coffee, chocolate, earthy elements, and hops in the flavor, though still remarkably balanced and incredibly drinkable. The coffee is definitely the star of the show, but it's not at all overpowering.

Medium bodied. Incredibly drinkable.

A wonderful imperial coffee porter. It's balanced, yet highlights both coffee and chocolate along with enough hop bitterness to balance things out. This is a great imperial porter.

Thanks!

Appearance: Pours a ruby-tinted dark brown with good clarity. Two fingers of head rises, but doesn't last long.

Smell: A ton of earthy coffee up front, with notes of toasted almond and cocoa powder beneath the onslaught of coffee. The coffee lends a touch of spiciness, dark berries and carob. This is reminiscent of Founders Breakfast Stout, but with a coffee character that feels more complex and robust, and malt dialed down a bit.

Palate: Coffee first and foremost, which has an earthy, fruity and faintly spicy quality to it. A full, roasty, slightly acidic malt foundation supports the coffee nicely. There's a touch of semi-sweet dark chocolate, almond and carob in the mid-palate. Sweetness is reigned-in for the supposed 8.5ish % ABV. The body is a sturdy medium, leaning more toward full than thin.

Overall: What a great beer. Easily in the upper echelon of coffee beers. I suppose that should come as no surprise coming from this brewery.
