4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. Pours a dense black with a khaki colored head of foam. Aroma is heavy coffee with a smoky fruitiness to it. Taste is that coffee again. Maybe a little too much coffee. Thick, velvety mouthfeel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a dark brown, almost black color with a thick creamy tan head. Aroma was heavy on vanilla, roasted malts, coffee notes and some chocolate. Flavor was about the same, with some fresh notes of coffee, chocolate and plenty of vanilla. Pretty darn enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2013 Pours darkdark brown to blak with a very small mocha colored head. Earthy peppery coffe on the nose, some roast with a tad of vanilla and molasses. Biye up front that soothes into lots of chocolate on the palate. Second sip is a bit more earthy coffee. Don’t get a lot of vanilla, but it lingers in the aftertaste just a hint. Pretty prickly carbonation, but not too much. Medium mouthfeel but very drinkable (one of the lighter imperial porters i have had). Very nice beer.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very bold and lasting flavor of roasted coffee, malt with hints of caramel and toffee. Quite dirnkable for the amount of alcohol that it packs. Outstanding porter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Coffee and cocoa aroma. Dark with thick tan head. Lots of coffee. A mild sweetness that may be the vanilla but I can't really tell. Earthy undertones. Clean finish. Slight alcohol warmth at the end.
