Dark brown, small head. Robust aroma, with malt, coffee, chocolate. Salty, nutty, coffee, earthy flavor; quite strong. Not a ton going on, but what is going on works very well. Full-flavored and lingers slightly.

Bottle. Pours very very dark brown, almost black and very opaque, with little to no head. The roasted malts dominate the initial taste, smokey and toffee-ish. Bitter finish. Very good

A wonderful example of an Imperial Porter. Abounding aromas of roasted molasses, chocolate and coffee, finishing with butterscotch and vanilla. Smooth, sweet and easy to drink. A nice after dinner "sit and sip" beer with a soft creamy palate and a little alcohol heat at the end. OK! LET’S PARTY!

Disappointing brew that remains stuck in-between. It has roasted malt like classical porter but also hoppiness keyed to IPA. Coffee and citrus do not necessarily mingle harmoniously. In fact they cancel each other. Itís bitter, but not enough to attract attention from IPA lover. It is roasted, but not enough to blow the porter fans mind. The best part in this beer : his name and his label. Hunter Thomson deserves a better tribute.

This imperial porter has a rich, thick, smokey taste with a nice strong bitter kick.

From a bottle. Didn't get as much coffee as I expected. Hoppy for a dark beer. Not easy to drink, but solid a beer.

FANTASTIC. Definately have to agree with the "glug-glug" thing, thatís exactly what it did when I poured it out. The thick, malty flavors carried over to the aroma. Both were very layered and packed a simple yet intese flavor that was extremely robust. A big palate-pleaser.

Delicious chocolate coffee flavor. Reminds me more of a stout that a porter. Nice dark pour. Sweet chewy sticky mouthfeel.

I normally don’t partake in porters too much but this one crossed my path and i was very impressed. Smells like a stout, coffee, and roasted malt. Tastes like tons of malt and very little hops. Normally this would discourage me but this is so smooth that it makes up for it. Overall a great beer and I would recommend this to anyone looking for great and interesting flavor.
