On tap at Revolution. Served in a snifter.

Dark brown body, almost dark, very opaque in comparison to Wee Gene. Heavy appearing dark brown head for about one finger, good retention. Leaves a thick collar that stays and stays around. Not much lacing. Smells of dark chocolate, deep toasted malt, earth, a bit of charred malt. Very malty beer. Flavour is roasted malt, dark chocolate, espresso, earth. A particularly earthy flavour with a bit of scorched grain to it. Moderately bitter as well. Mouthfeel is absolutely full bodied, very substantial yet creamy and smooth, like a big porter should be. Not particularly sticky. Moderately bitter earthy, almost herbal finish. Definitely brings a bit of heat as well, but the most impressive thing about this beer is the body. Overall, very tasty imperial porter that simply embarasses a lot of imperial stouts out on the market with how thick it is.
