Brewed in the style of an Imperial Porter. Vicious disposition is a surprisingly smooth imperial, brewed with local avocado honey. Complex malt flavors lead into a rich and buttery finish, making this deceptively dark Porter easy to drink. Enjoy Vicious Disposition at a slightly warmer temperature than usual.

On tap. Black with almost no head. Dark chocolate, cherry, and drip coffee aroma and taste with a bitter chocolate finish and a slightly oily full bodied palate.

Draft at the brewery. Dark brown pour, with a tan head. Plenty of heavy roast, sweet chocolate, burnt malt, licorice, bitterness, coffee, and notes of dark fruit. Ok.

Drank from a bottle at home. An excellent porter! The taste is sweet with hints of chocolate, honey and coffee. Look beautiful.

A pleasant surprise. Aroma is roasty coffee, dark chocolate and a sweet malty honey. Pours black with a nice tan head. Taste is ultra roasty with dark chocolate and a sweet honey malt behind it. Finishes with a great roasted coffee mouthfeel. Dark a nice.

Bottle shared by Jesse at Johns. Pours dark brown with tan head. Nose and taste of honey, roast chocolate malt, vanilla sweet molasses, roast coffee and a touch of pine. Medium body. Great balance.

brokensail (15444) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 22, 2013
On tap @ Ironfire. Black pour with a small tan head. Very roast forward nose, some ash, coffee, and coffee grounds. Licorice, dark fruit, burnt sugar, and a slight nuttiness. The flavor is kind of bitter up front with lots of roasted malt and coffee grounds. Burnt sugar, licorice, dark fruit, burnt nuts, and a hint of alcohol.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Itís black, opaque, with a tan head and good lacing. The aroma is warm, alcoholic, and toasty malts, nice. I usually despise gimmicky attempts to use weird local ingredients in beer (like avocado honey, whatever the hell that is), but in this case, the result is pretty good. Itís surprisingly balanced for how strong it is, with lots of warmth, and not over-hopped. Really roasty-toasty for the style, which mutes some potential complexity.

GT (9918) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Tap at Ironfire. Muddy dark brown with red highlights. Sheets of lacing. Nose is unassuming, muted hazelnut, soil. Taste is weaker, dusty, black tea, lemon, hints of dark chocolate. Palate is thin, soil heavy. Weak for imperial porter.
