Imperial Mocha Porter
A luscious warming mouthfeel, with coffee induced bitter notes contrasting with sweet chocolate and vanilla. Dangerously easy to drink, liqueuresque in flavour with a kahlua like finish. Like The Goddess Europa on her Bull, its’s easy to get carried away by this little dark number.
Available from 11th Feb 2011 in kegs as Limited Release, and sometime after Easter 2011 in 750mL bottles, approx. 120 only. Very limited and very special!

Opaque black - brown beer with a big pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, slightly dry. Mild fine carbonation. Malt cream with dry mocha coffee and mild vanilla and lactose. Touch of citric hop, well buried. Dry finish. It’s fine but too much dry mocha for my taste.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2013 First rating
50 cl bottle thanks to sebletitje! From Systembolaget in Malmö. Sampled on June 12, 2013.
No BB date I could find.
Black color, big yellow to brown lasting head. Vanilla, chocolate, alcohol, rich, smooth scent. Alcohol, sweet, malty, chocolate, toffee taste. Roasted, sweet aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Highly sippable, not highly drinkable though. A nice beer to relax with for a bit, but I’m glad we could split this bottle two ways.

Draught at Tippler’s Tap, Brisbane, on July 20, 2013.
Black color, brownish yellow color. Sweet, fruity, smooth scent. Sweet, malty, grainy taste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
