330 ml bottle shared by alexsdad06 - thanks again, Brad! Got cute with the name here; yeah, can’t use the original. Pours a deep opaque brown, nearly black, with a small, lasting beige head. Nice to look at. It has some black olive notes in there, with tobacco, dark chocolate, roasted malts, light soy, and some fudge sweetness. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a rich, coating mouthfeel. Dry finish. Good imperial porter.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Chris, served in a stem glass. Pours black with a small rim of tan bubbles but no distinct head. The nose has huge notes of dark chocolate and brown sugar, along with anise, vanilla and a hint of dark fruit. The flavour is fairly sweet throughout, with big chocolate and molasses notes paired with vanilla, dark fruit and a hint of coffe. The finish is long and roasty with lots of chocolate and molasses. On the palate it is medium-full in body with a creamy texture and almost no carbonation. Overall, a great imperial porter with nice chocolate and vanilla notes. 2014-12-01
