09/2017 - The nose is out of control - cinnamon, coffee, cardamom for days; amazing flavors akin to the nose with some spice; solid mouthfeel for an imperial porter; lactose, roast goes on and on!

From Labor Day weekend notes:
Gentle to moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch tan head over a dark brown body with nice lacing.
Nose of maple, cinnamon, and coffee.
Taste mirrors nose with the chilies coming through very nicely.
Nice feel and overall, I'm grateful I finally got to try this bad boy.
Cheers!

Pours an almost entirely dark color with a bigger, soft beige head, collapsing to a coating ring of lacing.

Smells of toasty coffee beans dipped into maple syrup, topped off by a generous amount of cinnamon. This creates a complex, earthy impression, countered by warm chilies and chocolaty bitter cocoa nibs. A milky, soothing, flowery note evolves from this, emphasizing roasted coffee with a sweet edge to it.

Has a very silk, lighter mouthfeel to it, with a helping thickness from the syrup, complimented by a low level of carbonation. Makes the beer easy drinking, while, at the same time it provides an ongoing, long lasting flavor evolution on the tongue.

Tastes of milk coated cinnamon roll among charred coal, milk chocolate and a gentle dryness from the red berries inheriting coffee. Turns even silker after that, with a sweet, maple syrup peak to it among roasty hazelnuts and molasses. Finishes with a slowly evolving coffee dryness from the well entangled coffee with a well working companionship of cinnamon and syrup.

Not really picking up any chilies, mouthfeel on this is almost a little thin, but the interplay of the remaining ingredients makes up for it, as they provide a great intensity on the palate. The adjuncts dominate the flavors, while they create a great composition among themselves.
