22oz bottle that I picked up for $6.99. Dark black with a small head, looks like an imperial stout. Aroma is sweet dark malts. Flavor was sweet, dark malts, I would have guessed it was an imperial stout. Overall, not bad, worth $7 but I wouldn't buy it again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Wax sealed 650ml bottle allowed to warm for about 15 minutes.

Pours deep, clear dark brown with a decent light brown head.

Aroma: Dark roasted malts with hints of dark fruits, char and sweetness. Approaches 4.25.

Flavor: Dark roasted malts with a touch of dates and other dark fruits. Slighty boozy; light smoky char. Sweet up front but mildly bitter overall. Coffee and bitter chocolate in the aftertaste.

Feel: Smooth, near medium body.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Undated bomber at 50 degrees into snifter
Aroma of malt, weak
Head large (5 cm), light brown, heaped and creamy, very slowly diminishing
Lacing good – large clots of thick, small bubbles
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor of malted grain, slightly sweet, quickly dies with only the sweetness left behind
Palate medium to full, creamy, carbonation soft

Passable; not in the same class with RIS, but then since it’s an “imperial porter” one would expect it to be less flavorful and thinner, which it is. This is not bad, with the appearance of the head, lacing, and body raising the score while the weak flavor lowers it. Worth trying; I have another bottle which I’ll age and try again in a year or two.
