Is this a porter? Whatever. It's great. Had in tap in a tulip- pitch black with a finger if head, modest retention and no lacing.

Smell isn't super strong but pleasant. Coffee, sweet malt and a hint of cherry.

Tastes fantastic- like regular imperial biscotti break but with a little bit if cherry. Taste is very well blended and balanced. Coffee, toasted almond, rich chocolate malt, and a little but of cherry. It's definitely there but well integrated.

Mouthfeel is very nice- full bodied, well carbonated. I love evil twin; I love imperial biscottiw break; Natale is just not quite as good as bourbon barrel but still awesome. Everything works better when this is warmer.

A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with a half finger high dark tan head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of dark bittersweet chocolate are present in the nose along with some hints of sour cherries.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of bitter chocolates along with notes of roasted malts and hints of sour cherries. Only faint bits of alcohol are perceptible.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer drinks a little more than an American Double/Imperial Stout compared to an American Porter given its fuller body and richness of the flavors but is still extremely easy to drink considering its strength as it hides its alcohol very well.

Thank you ThisWangsChung!

A delicious variant of one of the best imperial porters around. Tastes like an IBB with sour cherry juice blended into it. Nothing artificial coming out of the nose or taste: balanced.
