Pours thick and dark with a small tan head. Nose is intense coffee, wood, light vanilla and grass. Taste is sweet at first but bitter mixes in for a perfect balance taste through to the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Heavy decadent body with a long aftertaste.

Opaque black beer. Palate is silky but also quite crisp. Rich dark malt that is a little creamy. The coffee and vanilla are sparingly used and beautifully judged. Finishes with more smooth dark malt, dark chocolate and dark malt tang. Soft finish. Very deftly brewed beer.

Large choco brown head with good retention and lace. dark brown in color. Justa big old chocolate,roast monster with a oily mouthfeel, chewy and lasting. Notes of cherry and vanilla in the aroma and flavor, also cocoa, hersheys syrup, faint patent notes and lightly warming alcohol and coffee as it heats up, faint coconut and some smoke as well. Sweet malts balanced out with a nice roastyness. Lil sweet finish. Nice brew. Props to UDBeernut!

Ours a deep dark brown with a fizzy brown head that fades quickly. The nose and taste are of toasted malts, coffee, dry and crisp with a tart rye finish. Quite tasty would go great with French vanilla bean ice cream.

Bottle. Pours an almost pitch black color with a tan head. Aroma is filled with coffee and vanilla, roasted malt, milk chocolate, dark fruits and caramel. The flavor is again with lots of coffee and vanilla, almost like an ice coffee, some roasted malt, dark fruits and dark caramel. The body is on the full side of medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a really tasty Imperial Porter!

Shared by someone at the Monte’s Krown tasting yesterday. Pours black, with a tan head. Huge vanilla notes with some roast fill the nose. Vanilla taste is very upfront and in your face, before the roast smacks you. Excellent beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
05/0572012 220z bottle, shared by Matt (thanks 50belair!). Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma bianco sporca, tra il beige e il cappuccino, molto persistente. Aroma di malti tostati, caffé, cioccolato fondente, con netti sentori di vaniglia. In bocca è sontuosa, ha un attacco da cioccolato fondente e una lunghissima, infinita coda amara, caffettosa, semplicemente spettacolare. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Birra sorprendente per intensità ed equilibrio, un vero capolavoro.
