Black with a beige head. Aroma is vanilla, sausage, floral hops, chocolate. Medium bodied, greasy mouthfeel, well balanced on the palate. Taste is vanilla, bologna, chocolate, pecans. A little strange.

Bottle. A dark brown color with a tan head. An intense aroma of toasted malts with a touch of vanilla. The vanilla comes through more clearly with each sip. This is a very robust, flavorful and rich beer.

A chocolate fudge sweetness dominates the aroma with slight tan head and spots of lacing. Chocolate covered coffee flavored marshmallows is my best way of explaining the taste. Carbonated with a creamy, smooth finish. Outstanding Imperial Porter that I will have try again!

There's a sweet choc and vanilla aroma from this dark brown beer with an offwhite head. The sweetness from the choc mixes well with the vanilla leaving more of a vanilla bean flavor towards the end of the taste. The beer finishes out with a slight alcohol burn with coffee beans. This brew is a full bodied brew with low carb. Not a bad beer at all. Worth a try.

This one really has the coffee and espresso making it. Almost smokey but I’ve learned its the espresso making it smokey.

22 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99 from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, quite a bit of vanilla, light coffee. Smells and tastes pretty good, but a touch thin. I like this, but it doesn’t compare to their hoppy beers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweetness in the aroma, roasty coffee notes. Dark brown with a thick tan head that dissipates pretty fast. Little sweet vanilla like taste with roasty alcohol forward finish. A bit more vanilla please. Very smooth otherwise.
