"Redone as an 8.5% imperial rye porter, and it was faaaaantastic. I’ve given out a few 4.3’s today, but damn, this earns it. Wonderful aroma of chocolate, coffee, spicy rye. Smooth, robust flavor and body. Got better and better. Hard to say wether this or the IIPA was my favorite."

Pours a deep brown color with a chocolate malt aroma. A deeply rich chocolate flavor throughout with a slight spice. The flavors mix together wonderfully with a bitterness that disappears quickly. A tasty beer that was mild for an Imperial Porter.

Golden road Hudson 7/28/13 Draft, Haven. Good solid strong porter, rich body with toasted dark malts, chocolate, brown bread. Rye? Where’d that come in? Solid, but nothing stands out to make you pay much more attention than the liquid before you.

The pour is almost black in color with a khaki head. Nose is heavy on the roasted malt and dark chocolate. Nice rye notes with a bit of coffee, molasses, and licorice. The flavor is lightly bitter with a lot of roasted malt, molasses, licorice, and dark chocolate. There’s also some hints of dark fruit, brown sugar, and rye on the palate.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Beer Revolution. It pours dark brown with a huge tan head. The aroma has lots of dry toast with a little chocolate and earthy rye malt. The flavor has some burnt toast with a little chocolate and rye. There are hints of roasted malt, but this isn’t real roasty. The body is full, the finish is dry. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice strong and roasty beer. The spice plays in the background of this dark brown beer that tastes a little stronger than the 7% implies. On par with the stout from Golden Road.
