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.

From a tap at the brewery and the texture is very silk like.The taste has a lot of chocolate and has a light body.I really like this beer.

Ibrew2or3 (6908) - 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 there’s a modest malt bitterness going on.

RobertDale (3473) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - SEP 1, 2014
22 ounce bottle. Pours almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, and some coffee. I didn’t get the honey and avocado tastes. Still a nice Strong Porter.

jrodooo5 (1019) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 14, 2014
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!

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2014
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.

jehoesefat (272) - Poway, California, USA - MAR 19, 2014
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.

radarsock (915) - Vermont, USA - MAR 2, 2014
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 (11030) - 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.

BeerFunGuy (645) - California, USA - FEB 11, 2014
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 (1280) - 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 (6511) - 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.
