Shall one compare thee to a fair beer, Not even this perfect porter before thou will do thee justice. Thou art more complex, brave and cunning. Thou have changed more than a brew will ever. Thou may be lil’, but thy mind is greater than words can speak and beer will ever taste.

mathieuc (1517) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle from Whole Foods Tribeca. Pours a really really dark brown with a thin moka head that won’t leave any lacings. Aroma is roasty when you end up disregarding the strong alcohol that attacks you when you first sniff. Taste is not too sweet but not completely dry either. Flavors of roasted malts and milk chocolate are what I could make out. Alcohol is a bit distracting but this is a 11.5% porter after all... Mouthfeel is good with a full body and a lower level of carbonation. A nice drink in the end!

Bottled 3/20/13. Consumed 5/26/13. Pours dark brown with a thin, wet dark brown head which turns oily if you ignore it... Aroma is nutty, chocolate, roast malt, vanilla, hint of banana, some mustiness. Taste is big, complex; booze, some dark fruits, chocolate, nutty, hint of peat. Very full-flavored; excellent taste. Oily body; slick. Mild carbonation. Excellent lacing. Alcohol taste is strong. Really excellent. Highly affordable for the quality.

jbruner (2507) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Pours an opaque black from the bottle with thin ring of tan lace that barely sticks. Aroma of dark and sweet chocolate, roasted malts, soy, and a back end of booze. Taste is mostly the chocolate and a hint of vanilla, then a boozy warmth on the way down. Solid, decadent and rich, not sure where to draw the line between imperial porter and stout.
