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.

Bottle: thanks, Kevin! Deep brown, nearly black with a gray & khaki tinted head that settles to a swampy skin & collar. Aroma includes heavy roast, grass, mild ash, light bittersweet cocoa, & some very mild molasses in the finish. Taste isn't as bitter as expected but is still quite roasty. Roasted malt, light cocoa, mild ash, grassy & herbal hops mid-palate with a dry-roasty & faintly sweet aftertaste. Honey pulls through just *barely* in the finish, but it's there. Pretty nice porter.

Deliciousness! Deep dark pour w/ a thin mocha head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is boozy & slightly roasty. The taste is quite similar. It finishes semi light which makes u want to come back for more! Pretty fantastic!

Deep brown color, tan head. I can’t say I noticed any honey. Just a straight forward, roasty porter with quite a bit of espresso flavors.

Sweet chocolate and coffee aromas. Pours dark brown with a foamy tan head. Very bitter at first sip and has a long coffee flavored finish.

Had on tap at the source. $6 for the full pint. Pours syrupy black with which a sudsy, off-khaki head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of rosemary, wildflower honey, cocoa nibs, bacon grease, dank hops, toasted breadcrumbs, and seawater. Tastes the same with the addition of lavender, cotton, fudge, denim, bay leafs, caramel, and charcoal. Not as fruity as Six Killer, but I found this to be equally, if not more, enjoyable: all the flavors appeared to be in the right place, and the alcohol was well-hidden, but it did creep ever so gently. Not earth-shattering, but this was fun. Recommendable.

Leighton (10698) - 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.

This beer pours dark black with a latte colored head. It has a rather typical but mild aroma of coffee. It has flavors of coffee and roasted nuts. Smoother than a typical porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MacBoost (1246) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Pours a thin looking dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of chocolate and some roast. Taste is semi dry, not much residual sweetness actually. Semi bitter with a slight floral hop presence. Finish entails more malt bitterness. Medium mouthfeel, low carb. Pretty good.

marcus (6421) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Bottle shared by oRos. Pours near black with a nice tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a slightly sour dark molasses flavor with a bit of avocado and a bitter finish.

22oz bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, molasses. I'm not sure if I was supposed to taste any avocado but I didn't. Very nice porter though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
