COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís a job. And a hazardous one at that. Benefits, you ask. I hardly think so. From the depths of the earth leap flames of destruction. When time is of the essence, the Hellfighter boldly steps in the line of danger. Whether or not heís insane is not important now. Itís with intensity and aggression that the Hellfighter taunts the blaze of almost certain doom. Our Imperial Porter is much the same. At 9.5% ABV and black as oil, Hellfighter Imperial Porter, with roasted coffee and chocolate malt characteristics, finishes what it started. This explosion of flavors will extinguish even a Texas-sized penchant for boldness. Intense and maybe a little insane, drink carefully but drink often. Blaze on!

Ahh, finally! Canít believe I missed this one last year. Hella black with a taste to match -- chocolate milk with a shot of espresso.

Mora2000 (5358) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2012
On tap at Anvil. The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a large brown head. The aroma has some big chocolate notes, as well as some roasted malt. The flavor is also very bold. I get a ton of chocolate and roasted malt, as well as a hint of coffee. The beer is fairly sweet overall and very enjoyable. The alcohol is noticeable but not overpowering. Thick, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

The best dark beer to come out of the brand new Houston brewery. Great taste with a deep flavor and smooth finish.

Pours a deep, thick mahogany with an aroma of nutty chocolate and light coffee. Flavor is velvety caramel cocoa, dark cherry, and chocolate syrup. Oily mouthfeel. Iíd fight hell with it.

rougeau13 (1867) - Texas, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Very, very dark brown with a moderate mocha colored head that dissipates but leaves a decent amount of lacing. Aroma of chocolate milk, roast and coffee; a touch mild. Lots of flavor though: dark chocolate, roasted malt and coffee creating a rich semi sweet semi bitterness. Medium-full bodied and a bit creamy. Their best so far.
