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 from South Bay Liquor: Poured a dense creamy black liquid that created a thick head of foam. Aroma is rich and robust with whiffs of chocolate mousse while also smelling like dark chocolate. Flavors are amazing and hit hard with strong notes of fresh roasted ground coffee bean that comes across as extremely bitter while a taste of sugary sweet malts bring upon flavors of melted dark chocolate that rounds this Impy porter out. I am unable to directly taste any traces of honey, but that’s not to say the honey isn’t there because the drink does have a pleasant sweetness about it.

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

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

Bottled. Aroma: strong roasted malts, with coffee and grassy notes. Color: deep brown, with dark head. Not bitter, but very roasted taste, with long palate. Almost molassee. It stays and weights in the mouth. Awesome beer, almost "too" tasty!

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Pours deep dark black with a thin tan head. The nose is cactus, honey, light chocolate, coffee, pine. The taste is high sweet at first but then massive bitter which rides through the finish. Not typical for a porter. More like an RIS. The mouthfeel is fizzy and poppin, yet has a creaminess to it. The body is heavy and the finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head that has fair retention. The aroma is a bit subdued with damp earth, dark bitter chocolate and mocha. The taste is very cocoa forward with lots of assorted chocolates, mocha and bitter walnuts. The palate is full and creamy with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry with bitter chocolates as an aftertaste. Overall: Good stuff, initially comes across as a bit sweet, like a milk stout, but that slowly fades to an intense bitterness that is most pleasant.
