2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
OK, if I knew this was an impy stout, I may not have tried it but now you have it. Big and black. No head. Slight coffee aroma. Coffee apparent all the way on the buds. Some creaminess detected on the uptake. Becomes more in yer face as the session continues. A little rude on the finish, medium linger. Not as bad as most impy stouts. Almost thought it was a stronger dry stout.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
