As far as coconut beers go this might take the cake. 2 years old and still was a coconut bomb. Great smell that wasn't overly suntan lotion. Still a little thin, bourbon added sweetness but not a ton of barrel character left. Solid beer for what is was, just overly sweet.

asted from bottle side by side with Last Snow. Pours black with light tan head. Aroma is sweet bourbon, vanilla and just a hint of coconut. Mild to moderate bitterness with moderate sweetness. Flavors of bourbon, molasses, caramel, cocoa, vanilla, coconut. Just an incredible BA Porter.

Shiny black with thin brown edges and a tiny wisp of tan film consisting of the only visible carbonation.

Smell is super fresh and abundant coconut, with cocoa butter, and even chocolate covered popcorn, transitioning to smooth, soft chocolate on the tongue with plenty of coconut, and not too much barrel actually, although it is quite strong and sweet.

This is pretty darn tasty but I think the hassle of getting it, not to mention producing it, is not worth it, as I enjoyed the regular, even non-imperial version more.
