Imperial porter poured cold from nitro at Jackie O's. Poured black as night with a thin-ish long lasting foamy mocha head with nice retention and spotty lace.

Subtle smoke, burnt brown sugar, smoke and dark nuts.

Nutty, sweet dark sugars. Medium bodied, big carbonation.

drinkable. Seriously hidden 9.4 abv.

A gift from @SomethingClever.
An undated 12.7 oz bottle stored at 42 degrees. Served at 50 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Aroma – maple and a little bourbon. Lasts.
Head small (Maximum < one cm, aggressive pour), tan, frothy/fizzy, gone almost as soon as I quit pouring. All that remains is an irregular one to two mm ring fed by some slight effervescence and four tiny islands.
Lacing – none.
Body – dark brown/black, opaque, effervescent.
Flavor – Starts slightly sweet with bourbon and maple predominating. Perhaps a bit of chocolate malt? No trace of hops. No diacetyl. No alcohol until it hits the stomach, then some transitory gastric heat occurs. However, allowing it to warm in my mouth definitely brings out the alcohol, surpassing the maple which is much greater than the bourbon.
Palate – medium, creamy approaching syrupy, lively carbonation.
A tad sweet for my tastes but otherwise an excellent brew. The paucity of head and lacing is what I’ve come to expect from BBA brews and doesn’t detract from my appreciation of them. As a porter, this is a bit dense, definitely in the range of stouts but not imperial stouts - a worthy addition to the beer belly on which I’m working. Thanks Dave!
Appearance 4, Aroma 4.25, Flavor 4, Palate 4.25, Overall 4.25.
