As a fan of porters, stouts, and all the like. This is something special. A scent of rich dark chocolate, which is not let down by the deliciously rich chocolatey flavor of this beer. Pours dark, and relatively thin compared to stouts. This imperial porter is as smooth as it gets people.... A deliciously rich experience. The price of this beer is a bit off-putting, but I’m going to be the first to tell you (I paid 18 bucks for this beer) IT IS WORTH THE PRICE!

CampesinoTino (725) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2012
White Wax Dipped Bomber. Dark brownish black in appearance with a small cap of cappuccino foam. Aroma is a mix of dark chocolate syrup, vanilla, oak and charred malts. The taste offers up a strong serving of bittersweet chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla bean and roasted malt with a little bit of bourbon in the background. The body is thick and creamy with soft carbonation and more chocolate and malt in the finish. Overall, an enjoyable liquid chocolate dessert beer with a much more reasonable ABV level than most oak aged Stouts and Porters.

michaelinwa (557) - Bothell, Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Black pour, moderate brown head, really light aroma which does not seem fitting for this beer. Taste is balance of roasted malt and chocolate. Chocolate stands out here, and is the main attraction. Surprising lack of barrel notes or other components. Mouthfeel is also surprisingly thin for such a beer of this style and with this ABV. No trace of alcohol. Finishes moderately bitter. This isn’t a bad beer, but for a high-end BA imperial porter, it falls far short of where it should. Aging won’t help it because it doesn’t have the legs for it.

Bottle. White Wax. Pours with a black hue and a tan head. Aromas are strongly creamy, huge vanilla, chocolate ice cream, cookie dough nose. Cocoa nibs, low roast, ice cream and barrel. Flavors are chocolatey and a bit chalky. Vanilla. Powdery, lots of cocoa, mild grainy. Medium carbonation, but feels a touch thin. Amazing aroma though!

Sample from bottle. Dark brown pour, light tan head. Sweet chocolate, cookie dough, light vanilla, woody bourbon, and lots more cocoa. Decent, but simple and straight forward.

jbeatty (945) - New York, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle, 10/11/2012. Pours black, decent white head fades rather quickly, fine thick lacing. Aroma of moist, rich chocolate brownies, cocoa powder, smooth roasted coffee (with chocolate), with subtle vanilla and wood notes but the barrel is clearly not anywhere near center stage. Flavor very much follows suit- roasted malts with great chocolate character, a little chalky, mildly sweet but balanced. Medium light body, dry. Decent but lacking complexity.
