Deep chocolate brown with a frothy tan head. Chocolate, malt, butterscotch in the nose. Medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. The flavor was chocolate malt laced with butterscotch sweetness. An interesting drink.

[At GABF 2004] A pitch black beer with a lasting brown head. The aroma is very subtle of chocolate and butterscotch. The flavor is sweet roasted, with slight notes of chocolate, and a dry coffee end.

Dark brown body with a ruddy tone. Rich aroma of semi-sweet chocolate and licorice. Chocolatey flavor with mild roastiness. Considerable depth. Medium-full bodied. A nice big, full-flavored porter.

GABF 2004. Il Vicino "Don’t Call Me Imperial" Porter was pretty good. Butterscotch on the nose. The initial texture was dope: creamy with prickles of hoppy dryness. Good robust roast. Also, good sweetness in the finish. Maybe the best porter I had at GABF? Hard for me to remember...

GABF 2004: I believe the person pouring it referred to it as an imperial porter. Nearly opaque black color with a thick creamy tan head. Aroma is loaded with roasty and sweet caramel malts. Body has a full, thick sweetness and milk chocolate palate, with some mild dark fruit complexity. Could’ve used a little more bitter balance, but still a very nice beer.
