Bottle courtesy of Brendan whilst playing a few rounds of Settlers of Catan. Pours a deep brown with thin white lacing. Aroma is tart fruit, sweet chocolate and light roast. Mouthfeel is medium and very nice; notes of cocoa, spice, tart fruit and toasted chocolate malts.

This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a dark brown almost black color with a thin sustaining finger’s worth of white to off white head. Damn, that head must last for a good 3 minutes. Finally, the lacing seems good, slight messiness. The aroma, well, I think this is a bit aged, though I don’t see any dates anywhere, but this is how I currently feel about this: coffee bean - slightly acidic, dry roasty, subtle vanilla, sly milk chocolate, then some sweet dark fruits (leaning to plums/raisins, mainly). The flavor takes all of the previously mentioned flavors to combine nicely into a subtle sweet to roasty coffee bean to dark fruitiness. Definitely moves nice and sweet in the aftertaste and slyly touching the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionable to sipping quality about it. Carbonation seems to have fallen off a bit, but that’s okay, as I believe this is slightly aged a bit. Overall, its aged, so, I don’t want to be too harsh on this beer, yes, maybe not as boozy as when it was initially put out on the market. Still, this one has a ton of potential.

stevoj (4014) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Bottle from Boise Co-op. Inky black pour with small beige head. Light, mellow coffee aroma. Taste brings more of the coffee bitterness, faint chocolate notes, burnt toast and roast malts. Imperial-ness not too evident, fairly smooth Porter. More coffee bitterness at the finish.

SlovakSniper (5130) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2016
Un liquide épais et une mousse qui se résorbe en laissant quelques traces derrière elle. Au nez, café fraîchement torréfié et fève entière écrasée qui n’empêchent pas la mise en place des malts. Au goût, chocolat et caramel combattent le café de façon pacifique. Le mariage est réussi. Tout cela est nuancé par un grain malté rôti costaud, des épices et de la terre (houblons?). Le corps est soyeux et pétillant. La finale est amère par le café mais aussi par les houblons. Un impérial porter qui ne s’adresse pas aux mauviettes.

A very nice coffee porter. Pours a deep brown-black with a brown head. Smells great, coffee and vanilla. Taste is vanilla to start, with a bit of bitter coffee in the finish. Had in the bottle.

22 oz bottle shared by Amy. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have big dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, earthy bitterness, perhaps a touch thin for the big roasted coffee character, but tasty, I get a hint of dark berries, but mostly coffee. I have had this before and didn’t rate it so I was happy to have it again.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2016
22 oz bottle, 5/30/12. Dark brown with a tan head. Nose is caramel, peanut, coffee, raisin and hay. Creamy medium body with a tingle. Taste is stale chocolate, caramel, coffee and fig. I’m guessing the coffee has faded quite a bit since fresh. The result though is beautifully melded and has held up better than many impy stouts I’ve cellared.
