12oz bottle, from Party Source. Dark brown color, near black. Chunks of yeast in the body. Thin ring of tan head. Dots of lace. Nice dark chocolate, coffee aromas, milk chocolate. Mild roast. Some caramel and dark fruit. Cola. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Kind of slick texture. A bit thicker, but not as chewy as some of the better American imperial porters. Decent, flavorful robust stuff.

Bottle. Dark body, medium to low tan head. Sweet roasty aroma with coffee and cocoa. Sweet roasty taste with sweet black coffee. Quite nice, but perhaps a bit too sweet.

WheatKing (1305) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle. Black, tan head. Nose is really fruity grape/blueberry, licorice. Flavour has some roast and salty licorice mixed up with the fruit. Did I mention this is a fruity IP? Probably the most I’ve had in this style. Nice bitterness in the finish. This is excellent.

Flaska från Domus Birrae, Rom. Svart öl med givmilt moccafärgat skum. I doften: Kaffe, mörk choklad och läder. I smaken: Mörk choklad, kaffe, läder och aska. Kolsyrigheten övergår i en mjuk munkänsla.

jrodooo5 (1035) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Very dark pour w/ a tiny head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma is coffee like w/ some hop bitterness underneath. The taste is bold & roasted & leaves an alcohol/bitter combo on the tongue. A very nice porter but just a tad thin in body would be my only criticism.
