neuromatt (1097) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
12 oz bottle from Kensington Wine Market in Calgary, served in a stem glass. Pours deep black with a small tan head that remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has big notes of roasted malt, molasses and caramel, along with smoke, a touch of anise and vanilla. The flavour is moderately sweet with roasted malt, tobacco and a touch of cocoa. The finish is long, roasty, slightly smokey, and a bit alcoholic. On the palate it is medium-full in body with a smooth, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a truly great, elegant, complex imperial porter. It has the complexity of a barrel-aged imperial stout but a slightly lighter body and smokier malts. An amazing beer. 2014-03-12

Great one. Light sweet smell and taste before the toasted malt appears. Well balanced. The alcohol comes with the biterness at the end.

12 oz bottle courtesy of clt85. Thanks. Pours a viscous black with a small tan head that soon fades to a fine ring. The aroma is strong with dark fruits, molasses and anise. The taste mirrors the aroma with black strap, dates, cocoa and anise. The palate is full and a bit oily with soft carbonation. The finish is long and dry with lingering molasses. Overall: First rate impy porter.

On tap at Torst. Solid porter with extra mouthfeel and bold taste, like a 1.5 X porter. Decent drinkability, abv not so noticeable.

Bottle, beautiful rich black with dark milk chocolate resinous head that slowly fades. Aroma, sweet brown sugar, dark fruit, coffee, smells a lot like the dark horizon beer I just had a week ago, but not as bold and aromatic, pretty nice though. Taste, smooth, velvety mouthfeel, very sweet up front, dark fruits, a bit of hops towards the middle, a dry lingering finish reminiscent a nice dry stout. Nice beer, really ET doesn’t do anything that I don’t like and occasion blows my mind, Cheers!

Very dark brown with a large tan head that never quite goes away. Lots of lacing, appears to be very well crafted. The aroma reveals graham crackers, leather, earthiness, and alcohol. Very strange description, but this is a very complex-scented brew. I could get a different scent note from every whiff. Taste was a little weak. Surprisingly watery up front, roasty and tons of booze in an aftertaste that goes away very quickly. Thin on the palate, easy drinking for how strong it is, but I would like more complexity. Evil Twin can do better; this was not one of my favorite ET selections.

BigDbrews (12) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Pours a very dark brown brown with a fluffy beige head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the glass. Aroma is chocolate, toffee, and espresso. Flavor is the same as the aroma with a mineral character. A very full rich mouthfeel and finishes with a bitter, dry, espresso like finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
