Three states combine to create this amazing Imperial Porter. You won’t find many beers like this out there.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It has been my good fortune to try a few amazing beers lately, and this is one of them. A powerful, full-flavored brew with some subtle touches. Nice spicy, grassy notes riding a bold wave of malt. There is also honey, flowers, forest funk, and hoppy nip. Really good! Let’s hear it for those Stone collaborations.

Bottle to glass. Pours very dark brown with decent brown head. Aroma is floral, honey and caramel malts. Taste is interesting, starts with semi- sweet honey, floral / spice notes with caramel malt finish. Finishes dry. Palate is smooth, thicker than expected. Good offering.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home.
App: Dark brown/black with a red hints, sediment floating around, two fingers thick fluffy beige foam, nice lacings. Good looking beer!
Aroma: Pretty dry and herbal with a strong floral note resembling viola with some licorice root, Finnish "tar pastille", leather/tobacco,wood, some burnt bread and alcohol. A bit muted, but it opened up towards the end.
Taste: Sweet fresh licorice that quickly goes over to more salty licorice also with some viola, plum and blueberry jam. Finishes of with a slight burning spicy bitterness like chewing tobacco.
Palate: Ambivalent with medium soft liquid but big mushy carbonation.
Overall:</b There’s quality here for sure, but it’s also quite difficult and hard. Maybe some age will do it good. Feels like a beer that would benefit from decanting.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a clear, reddish dark brown body under a dense, tan head of moderate size. The aroma has a sweetish chocolate touch and roasted malts. Some coffee too. The flavor is more interesting, with sweetness, roasted malts, coffee and semi-dark chocolate. Full body, with a soft and pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish with chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Starts off a bit boring this one, but it’s sure a nice one once you start drinking. 140301
