COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BrewMaster’s Series #1 - The BrewMaster’s Series is a limited edition series where each beer is crafted by one of our brewers. Every batch in the series is unique and reflects the brewer’s imagination, creativity, and passion for beer. Enjoy. Youngblood’s Imperial Porter is brewed with a wide variety of malted barley and has a rounded chocolate character from the roasted grains. I wanted to explore using many different malts. It’s not for the faint of heart.

22 oz. bottle from TheBeerSommelier- thanks again, Matt! I think this was a 2004 vintage. Pours an opaque brown with no head. The aroma has some initial metallic notes, but beyond that is tobacco, charred wood, cola, and a lot of dark chocolate. Flavor of roasted malts, cola, charred wood, dark chocolate, and molasses. Nice. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth, roasty mouthfeel. Not bad at all; I can vouch that STLWill liked it a lot, too.

djd07 (3564) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle as shown. Pours a dark brown with a small quickly diminishing tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with a smoke and vanilla. Easy to drink a good Baltic porter.

drowland (6027) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
2/25/12. Bottle shared during RBWG 2012 by Walt. Very dark brown pour with a small brown head. Dusty chocolate aroma with a touch of oxidation (reminds of an old ale a bit). Sweet chocolate entry with lingering bitter roastiness.

diabel (1607) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2011
Black muddy body. Brown creamy head. Quite nice aroma of chocolate, coffee and some caramalts: not overwhelming, but interesting aroma. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter flavour: well balanced, nice complexity.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Older bottle thanks to cquiroga. Pours with a black body and a lasting deep brown head. Good lace. Aromas are very vinous and estery, big fig notes, brown sugar, plum, dark fruit, roast, fudge and milk chocolate. Flavors are somewhat oxidized. Roast, vanilla, lots of raisin notes, dark fruits, fig and milk chocolate. On the sweeter side of things. Creamy, mellow and light oxidation. Low carbonation. Good, but was probably better a few years ago.

Koelschtrinker (10643) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Süßlicher, stark malziger Antrunk mit leichten, kaum erkennbaren hefenoten. Weiter sehr aromatisch malzig, vollmundig, zum Ende auch etwas scharf, dafür aber untypischerweise kein bisschen bitte. Gelungenes aromatisches Bier! 12/12/10/12/11/12

22oz bottle pours an oily, opaque black with a thin, tan head. Nose of molasses, a little oxidized, raisins, coffee liqueur. Flavor is sweet, brown sugar, molasses, light coffee, thinning coffee, toasted bread. Medium bodied, dry finish. Starting to fade out a bit.
