Solid brownish black with a fizzy head that settles to a ring of foam. Sweet chocolates smell with a hint of smoke and roast and molasses. The flavor is rich chocolate, sweet, lightly roasty and bitter. The chocolate and cocoa linger well into the aftertaste. Drinks like it is 7% abv. Smooth feel. Wonderful beer here. Would definitely get this again.

Bottled 02/19/14
Black and viscous fluid with a half finger head that settles to a thin cap. Moderate amount of spotty lacing is left down the glass.

Cocoa Crisp smell with its chocolate and cookie like malt aroma. Slight hint of coffee and alcohol.

Flavor of a mocha beverage except with the alcohol flavor and heat which is quite strong in the finish. Some earthiness and mild bitterness as well.

Big and thick body. Wonderful carbonation gives a rich texture that is really appealing.

A massive porter that has some very good flavors. Would definitely buy again.

Excellent Imperial Porter. Thick rich blackish brown with thin tight lacing. Dark roasted malt up front on the nose, brown sugar, caramel. Head retention is amazing. Dark malts and licorice, light hop tinged aftertaste with lots of alcohol warming. Thick and fulfilling. Silky smooth going down, black coffee, dark chocolate, toffee, plums, roasted malt without the deep roasting found in stouts. Quite nice indeed.

Had on growler from Country Fresh Farm Market Anderson township Cincinnati Ohio

Slight dark brown head but with lasting retention, mild lacing but again with lasting retention.
Molasses and roasted chocolate malts are the first part of the aroma to hit. Alcohols makes itself known very lightly for a relatively high alcohol brew. For me this was a hard brew to finish because it had a bitter after taste that was not to appealing. First mouthfeel was OK but the bitter after taste just killed it for me. Like to think of myself as one who enjoys a good Porter, but it wasn't this one.
