4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from draft. Pours black with beige head. Aroma is cocoa, coffee, caramel. Taste is very smooth and clings to the palate. Flavors or chocolate, coffee, toffee, caramel, vanilla, cookies. Moderately sweet with mild bitterness. Overall an incredible imperial Porter but not up to Funky Buddhas wide awake.

22 oz bottle. Pours black with a bubbly dark brown head. The smell is coffee, vanilla, and caramel. It tastes like a caramel vanilla mocha latte. I mean coffee, vanilla, cocoa, caramel, and some citrusy hops mix around without one dominating. Really nice smooth silky texture for an Imperial. Creamy feel with a little hop quality. Excellent beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Thick pitch black with very dense nice-settling dark brown mocca one finger head. Aroma has loads of cookiness. Rich dark chocolate, french press coffee, coffee beans, vanilla, fudge, more chocolate. Some slight port wine, oxidation. Almost cherrie like fruitiness. Dark malts and roast in there as well. Taste is quite sweet, brown burnt sugar, molasses. But then it hits you with lots of roast. Stil has the port like cherries. Rich chocolate, vanilla. Slight almond. Finish is really roasty malts and coffee. Really well hidden alcohol with some slight warming port heat. Went well with biscottis!
