COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Collaboration with Hoppin’ Frog. Aged on soft maple wood.

In today’s fast paced world, it is often difficult to stop racing around and enjoy the good things in life that hard-working people deserve. For those who search for this long lost sense of leisure that is reminiscent of Southern living, slow down and kick back with Dan’l Webster. Like the racing frog from Mark Twain’s short story, this Imperial Porter will take you out of the race with its intensely heavy weight. With just a kiss of a new, experimental hop that has notes of orange, chocolate and coconut, and then aged on soft maple wood, this thick and satisfying porter is a great way to forget about the race, getting you one step closer to winning the marathon of life.

Serving: Bottle. Pours damn near black with a super dense light tan head. Great retention. Big roasty nose with notes of bakers chocolate, fresh ground coffee, and a slight fruitiness. Full bodied with a nice round mouthfeel. Coffee, chocolate, a touch of dried stone fruit, slight turbinado sugar sweetness. Well, sure seems like an imperial stout to me, but either way, it’s pretty darn good.

22 oz bottle. Psyched to try this after missing it at Philly Beer Week. Pours as thick as advertised; dark brown with tan froth. Nose is coffee, dark chocolate, wood, coconut and cardamom. Silky full body with a soft buzz. Yeah, this is a mouthfull with heat building deceptively in the finish. Taste is chocolate syrup, malted milk balls, caramel, slight citrus peel and cafe au lait.

Chocolate malty smell. Roasty malty taste with mineral water and light chocolate. Thinner body with medium to high carbonation.

Nice beer! Nearly black with a brown head. Lots of chocolate, some chocolate bread flavors, light woody notes, some molasses and prunes. Very hearty beer.

Poured dark brown, almost black with aromas of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, light coconut, and some light fruit. Flavors matched the aromas, very nice, great mouth feel, solid beer that I could drink a lot of.

On tap at Dixie. Dark brown pour with a light brown head. Intoxicating chocolate and caramel bouquet. Dark roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, and vanilla notes. Outstanding body with a very good mouthfeel. Impressive. Bravo CCB!!!!!

Shared with Zach, pours a dark black thick pour with a beautiful chocolate colored head. Nose is deep rich sweet chocolate and dark fresh espresso, stunningly so. Taste is sweet chocolate with heavy malt, with the alcohol well buried in the taste despite the ABV. Finish is sweet, and ends on the same chocolate coffee espresso like flavors. Quaff Score 8 / 10
