Black viscous pour with small dark khaki head. Aroma of massive chocolate, roasted malts, caramel and fruit. Taste of creamy chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, fudge and a faint fruit presence. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, slightly lower carbonation, delicious beer!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent imperial porter, thicker than an average one, tastier too and perfectly brewed. Delicious aromas to liquor and biscuit, avoiding the classical protagonist role of coffee-ish notes. The mouthfeel is overwhelming, enriched by the velvety-creamy texture. Great, very great, stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought at Champanes,
this porter had a dark brown (almost black) pour that looked viscous, and presented a one finger tan colored head that receded to a scattered cover that had mostly open areas and a ring, there was no sediment in the bottle,
there were aromas of intense toasted malt with some roasted malt, a little nut, some smoke, and a touch of dark bread,
faint earthy malt notes in the background, there were a few dark fruit notes that resembled prunes and raisins that were over cooked but not burnt, some dark brown sugar and molasses sweetness,
the flavors were intense toasted malt with a bit of roasted malt, dark bread notes with faint dark fruit, dark roasted nut,
coffee, brown sugar and molasses sweetness, the finish had malt and coffee bitterness that clung the palate and hung around a bit,
the mouth feel was pretty full and thick, this drink coated the tongue and lips, it had a little bit of a creamy feel, the carbonation was soft to average,
this was a intense porter beer, resembles an imperial stout but with a big toasted malt base instead of roasted malt, there was just a little roasted malt, it was thick and covered the tongue, a drink I would enjoy on a cold evening next to a fireplace, a nice drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Deep dark brown pour crowned with a shy tan head. Coffee and choc predominant in the beak. Sweetish taste with some roast, coffee, choc and berry fruit notes. Smooth and full bodied with a little alco heat, and some bitterness emerging towards the finale. A very handy sipper. E-Z B.

12 oz bottle. Pours a thick black with a brown head. Very strong raisin aroma, molasses and bubble gum, boozy. Molasses and raisin flavor, syrupy sweet. Itís pretty tasty, though pretty thick. In the end I think I like it!

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From notes. 22 oz bottle on March 15. The pour is gorgeous! Dark black pour with an incredibly dark khaki head and no lace. The aroma is good. Thereís a great chocolatey roast, and some alcohol on the front end that carries all the way through, like a good porter should. The flavor is much of the same; strong chocolate and roast, with a little smokiness on the back end. The mouth feel is really, really thick, with a great creaminess and delightful carbonation. The aftertaste is dry and roasty. This is a greatly executed porter!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nearly black, very very dark brown in color with orange hues and a short-lived head, this beer smells like itís worth a million bucks. I should have bought two bottles of these! It smells dark, sweet, high in alcohol, and a little greasy. Itís light in the mouth and easier than I expected, with smoke and hints of wood well-pronounced. Its flavor profile is dense, offering a sharp, very highly roasted malt character and a punch-in-your-face roasted bitterness accompanied by a smooth, silky mouthfeel. The more you drink of this the more that smoke starts to taste like peat. Itís soft, but robust, and high in alcohol. Yet it pulls it off soft, easy, and smoothly.
