750ml bottle poured into a snifter, vintage 2015. It is a deep brown/black with a 1.5 finger head that fades slowly and leaves a good amount of lacing on my glass for a Porter. The aroma is heavy with vanilla and almost begins to seem tart. Bourbon with oak, roasted malt and chocolate. The taste also finds the vanilla to be strong with some bourbon. I get oak and some bitter chocolate with roasted malt. Booze is somewhat present but not overwhelming. Mouthfeel is medium with some soft carbonation. Overall I thought this was decent, but for some reason the vanilla was too strong and almost had a tartness to it.

Pours a dark brown as you might imagine. Aromas of roasted malt and espresso notes. A really well made porter, this beer has roasted and astringent qualities. Well rounded on the palate, finishes smooth, real nice beer.

Had on-tap at the Pour House in Exton, PA. Poured into a snifter.

L: Pours a deep black color. Thick creamy off-white head.

S: Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate nibs.

T/F: Taste follows the smell fairly well. Roasted malts dominate... hints of coffee and cocoa, but overall fairly thin for an 'Imperial' porter with an ABV of 8.5%. Smooth... not unpleasant.... just missing something.

O: Not a bad beer, but was definitely a bit disappointed and expected more from an Imperial Porter. I expected a heartier brew and wouldn't seek out again.

Not a huge fan of the style but I'm really digging this one. Great mouthfeel for a porter to go along with a great chocolatey nose. Neck and neck with Weiss Wit as my favorite 2SP beer. Well done, and cheers!

Complete black out in the glass with tan lacing. Smells of roasted coffee and sweet chocolate. Rich and creamy, coffee, toffee, with full mouth feel. Lacing hangs onto the glass throughout the whole session. This beer seems to drink like a much higher abv and is only 7.2. Very nice thick porter done very well.
