22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a creamy beige head. Smells like vanilla extract and chocolate egg cream with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Smooth medium body with a tang. Taste is chocolate syrup, cane sugar and oak finishing with welcome bitter black coffee. Where’s the bourbon? Too much unrefined sugar but good for dessert.

Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Picked up a bottle from the tap house in Ashland. Great pour, a finger of tan head on a dark brown body. The aroma is all chocolate. It smells great though. The taste is chocolate throughout. There’s a mild bitterness and the chocolate avoids being too sweet. Great balance and complexity. Smooth texture, low carbonation and medium body. A really nice porter, especially if you like chocolate.

22oz bottle from Belmont Station. Distributed this year, alleluia! A: A black brick in my glass with a fuzzy head that diminshes to foam. Glass looks like it was attacked after a swirl. N: Chocolate, hershey’s syrup, fudge, chocolate, more chocolate. A hint of vanilla and caramel. Oak is faint. Did I mention chocolate? Not complex, but..chocolate! T: Baker’s chocolate, fudge, oaken dryness, chocolate syrup. There’s a distinct pepperiness here. Vanilla. This really quite drying. Earth and some leather. Coffee roastiness. M: Very filling. Alcohol detracts a bit. O: An accomplished beer that I believe deserves a wide audience. This will likely get better as the hoppy pepperiness fades. Right now, it acts as a nice balancing agent.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Bakers chocolate, cocoa powder, roasted malts, oak, and light bourbon. Pours dark brown, tan creamy head. Flavors of chocolate, cocoa powder, roasted malts, oak, dry woody notes, light sweet bourbon brown sugar and light alcohol. Only complain might be the body is a little thin but this was a wonderful use of chocolate in beer. Really really solid and enjoyable.

maxwelldeux (3450) - Everett, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours an extremely dark brown with a moderate tan head. Nose has some slight roasting and a lot of chocolate in there. Taste has a fair amount of chocolate in there, but manages not to be sweet. Awesome.

Elwood (3009) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Deftim 13 as a part of free beer week. Thanks Tim! It pours a dark brown color with a small, tan head. The nose has notes of dark chocolate and chocolate milk. Smells great. The flavor is a nice mix of chocolate, dried fruit, raisins, and light oak. Nice body with a medium mouthfeel and a lasting finish. Quite tasty!

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!
