Notes / Commercial Description:
This 15% Imperial Porter was made with coconut and turbinado sugar then laid down and aged in bourbon barrels for several months. With a classic film reference weaved into the label art, we hope you enjoy this product as much as we did making it. A generous donation will be made to The Raider Project for each bottle sold to thank them for what they do for our Marine Veterans.

I wasn't able to pick up all that much on the nose, which surprised me - I had read lots about how No Rules is a liquid Mounds bar. The sweetness is definitely as advertised - it is incredibly saccharine and a bit syrupy. While I liked this quite a bit, it's just too sweet to be anything but a novelty - definitely wouldn't be a daily go-to drinker for me.

Pours dark brown. Foamy, short, brown head that Fades fast.

Smells dark chocolate, roasted coconut, roasted malt, Bourbon and light vanilla.

Taste is quite sweet. brown sugar, chocolate, roasted malt, roasted coconut and light vanilla. Finish is sweet with a chocolate and roasty linger. Full body and lightly fizzy medium carbonation.

Tasted from draft. Incredible intense aroma of chocolate, coffee, bourbon, vanilla. Taste with similar flavors along with caramel, cinnamon, spices. Very syrupy and clingy mouthfeel. Mild alcohol burn finish.
