22oz Bottle. The pour was a deep dark opaque brown with an average (1-2 finger) medium tan creamy head that receded down to a thin layer of residue and medium collar, which created excellent sheets of sticky lacing. The aroma was of roasted dark malts, light resin hops and a bold leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, dark fruit (black cherry) and a mild tartness. The taste was lightly sweet and exceptionally malty with a bold chocolate roastiness which lasted throughout, progressing with a mildly bitter espresso presence along with a slight fruitiness towards the finish. The flavor hung around for a good long time following the swallow, with a lightly tart fruity roasty taste that was left to settle in on the taste buds, as a mild alcohol warming sensation crept in. Mouthfeel was well beyond medium in body with a dry, oily texture and a somewhat lively carbonation. Overall as Imperial Porters go, this one is at top of its game. It possessed tons of roasty flavor along with a mild fruity tartness and a superb drinkability. This brew is highly recommended and a must try for anyone who likes a dark roasty brew... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

The aroma is definitely more enticing than the taste. Kind of a bitter aftertaste on the palate. Got the beer at Grocery Outlet and it said it was brewed in October 2013. Nice buzz with a 9.2 Alc.

Had a long time ago and updating the app. But I wrote the coffee was strong and good but it was a bit too bitter at the end for a higher rating. Had in bottle.

Bitter chocolate, coffee, abundant roast, malts, hops, slight fruit notes. Smell is more enticing than the taste. Good balance. Canít emphasize the roast enough.

Nice little showing from a brewery I donít get around to often enough. Quite solid coffee porter, Imperial style, with a nice little hop bite to boot. Respectable showing. Serving size: 22oz bombs Away.

Possible infected bottle? Pours a nice deep brown with a purple tint and a small khaki foamy heady. Aroma was weakly of coffee and an odd sweet smell. Taste was rotten fruit and vinegar. No coffee at all and undrinkable. Wasnít impressed, but not sure if the bottle was bad or if I just didnít care for it.

Dark brown, almost black pour with large beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and a hint of chocolate. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, cocoa, hint of caramel. Medium bodied, perfect carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, slightly bitter finish. Very good beer!
