Grand Rapids Brewing Company's first bottles releases. They had a limited number of bottles available for pick up, however I was able to snag two of them. They had it on tap as well but I was kind of in a rush. Bought the bottles from the two head brewers at the bar. Waited about 3 weeks before drinking one.

P: This year’s edition KBS glass.

A: Black but when held up to the light I could notice a slight brownish color as well. It was faint though. Small mocha brown head that slightly dusts the beer.

S: Getting a slight bourbon presence upfront with faint hints of coffee and chocolate mixed in. Real hard to pick up anything else up though.

T: Definitely get the bourbon upfront with roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate there as well. Neither three real pronounced but the bourbon does linger as it warms.

M: Surprising light for this style. Little watery.

O: This was my first Imperial Porter. The flavors are there but just muted down. I feel like I need to try this again, maybe on tap. I wouldn't rush to seek this out again though. Glad I got to try it.

On tap. This the BBA version at 10% and not retired. Smell is dried stone fruit. Taste brings more of that, some vanilla and oak. Very wine like in my opinion. Not much roasty malt. Feel is thin, booze well hidden. It's ok but others do barrel ages much better
