I love porters but this wasn't for me. Flavor wasn't all there.

this beer is REALLY solid and enjoyable, this is currently way underrated.

the pour is ok, it does not look as rich as it drinks. the aroma is fine - warm brown bread and candy sweetness.

the drink is excellent. deep rich malt flavor, with a hint of chocolate astringency that balances any cloying sweetness from the malts. it is really rich and drinkable and the alcohol is well hidden.

this is a delectable Imperial Porter that drinks very smooth. would definitely buy again. PLEASANTLY SURPRISED.

Bought a bomber in Palm Springs and consumed same night with a cigar over a few hours. Appearance is pale for a porter.
Cocoa nose, sugar and vanilla.
Taste more caramel. Sweet alcohol. Lingering heat, fusels.
Mouthfeel is off-dry, with a light body.
Drinkability isn't too good. Overall, it's an entirely forgettable beer.

Poured from a bomber bottle into a globe glass.

L - Deep, dark brown, almost black. Clear. Tan head is thick. It persists as a thin sheet and thick lacing.

S - Aroma is of roasted grain, almost burnt. Some smoke and chocolate. Grain husk in the end. Some earthy hops. Not very complex.

T - Husky graininess at first, followed by chocolate and coffee with just a hint of burnt grain and light smoke. Moderate grassy hops. Dry, clean finish.

F - Medium body. Medium, smooth carbonation. Medium hops bitterness. Low alcohol presence.

O - Overall, this is a well-made beer, very clean and crisp. I'd like to see it have less graininess and burnt character and more chocolate/coffee for a porter, especially one that calls itself a chocolate porter.

The beer was really good with my dinner. However, the thin taste made for a flat tasting beer. Good for deserts and sipping. No match for my IPA's though.
