355ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours jet back, thick tan head. Big roast aromas with a chunk of resinous hops in there too. Chocolate and coffee on the taste, big bitter kick. Tastes as strong as it is. Nice.

Despliega un color negro intenso, media cabeza de espuma beige; en la fase olfativa se aprecian aromas a café, cacao y licor; en boca entrada potente con amargor medio; pos gusto largo, seco y cálido sus nueve grados acaban notándose, notas terrosas y a café; el amargor va desapareciendo al paso de un tiempo, buen cuerpo y carbónico medio que hacen de ella una porter interesante

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2015 Sweet roast malt aroma. Chocolate and coffee notes too. Almost black with dark brown head. Starts with roast malt and coffee notes. Start is true to imperial porter style. Finish is distinctly hoppy.

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate and coffee. Pours black with decent mocha head with good retention and lacing. Smooth, clean mouthfeel to start with roasted malt and dark chocolate flavors. Finishes slightly dry with coffee bitterness as well as a bit of hops. Good porter.

Bottle. Flying dog has great artwork on every bottle, and even better beer inside. Aroma of dark roasted coffee. Tasted of Dark Chocolate and the darkest roast of coffee available. Lots of molasses and syrupy feeling on the tongue. I could taste the boozyness in this one, but it was a nice the warming kind of boozyness.

Black pour with a tight brown head, looks almost syrupy. Huge aroma jumping out of the glass - toffee, malty, coffee, liquorice, cocoa. Strong taste up front, dark malt, coffee, tobacco, and as this fades hoppy and dark chocolatey bitterness cuts through. Really excellent beer

Was lured in by the sweet drug-trip artwork and stayed for the enjoyable swallow. Loved the movie, loved the man, loved the Imperial Porter. Browner than the inside of a chocolate chip’s ass with a nice mocha head that hung around for a spell. Taste and aroma were sweet leathery brown sugar, with strong dark malt and alcohol taste. It had a slick , slightly oily slurp to it and I reckon Hunter S. Thompson would tip more than a few of these.

Splendid beer. Tar black with oily mouthfeel but a good toffee brown head. A good drinking stout which tickles the nose thanks to a fair amount of alcohol. Once you’ve had a swig, you’re left with a strong bitter chocolate taste. Bliss!
