COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Leighton (13850) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours deep brown with a frothy, beige head. Fair effort here. Deeply roasted malts, earthy bitterness, bittersweet baking cocoa. A bit of dark chocolate and burnt wood, too. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Light warmth at the end with more baking cocoa character. Rich, hefty.

brokensail (12909) - Orange County, 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.

bhensonb (12310) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bomber from CraftShack. Pours very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate and thereís a hint of something suggesting cinnamon. Full bodied. Flavor is primarily chocolate. Itís an earthy chocolate. This ale is very dry, tho the label says brewed with honey. Finishes chocolate and dry. Maybe with a honey hint coming out. Or not. Very tasty.

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.

daknole (10255) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Deep brown color, tan head. I canít say I noticed any honey. Just a straight forward, roasty porter with quite a bit of espresso flavors.

GT2 (9273) - San Diego County, 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.

Ibrew2or3 (7423) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Poured up at the brewery where it exhibits a nice yet murky dark mahogany body that supports a bright tan head of foam that has a golden tone to it. The aroma offers up malt sweetness, molasses, burnt malts and nuttiness. The taste is smooth, rich and sweetness that is enhanced by roasted malts and slight burnt maltiness. It has a nuttiness that seems sort of coconut or something. It ends as smooth as it started but thereís a modest malt bitterness going on.

Bottle: The aroma consists of dark chocolate, bakers chocolate, roast, and espresso. It pours a dark brown with barely some orange highlights and a small tan head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some decent webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate dark and bakers chocolate. There is a light sweetness in the background. Maybe it the avocado honey, but I canít really tell. The finish has moderate espresso, roast, and some faint burnt notes. Itís medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a soft mouthfeel.
