COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Long Trail Imperial Porter features a complex, darkly roasted malt flavor complemented by a thin, creamy head. The abundance of malt is balanced with a variety of hops, creating a clean finish. The recipe has been a homebrew secret that was developed by one of our own brewers.

MadRobin (1690) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Poured from 22 oz. bottle after cellaring for 17 months. Opaque, brown-black with a 2-finger tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of intense roasted malt, figs and roasted coffee with some dark fruit and chocolate as well. Taste of espresso, dark roasted malt, dark fruit and burnt chocolate. Full/medium body and medium carbonation with a robust mouthfeel that is a nice match for the robust flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

seth_lfod (322) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Vintage 2011. Gifted by Nick... Thanks! Pours a very dark brown with a reddish hue. Smell is roasted malts, a bit of chocolate, and alcohol. Taste is surprisingly better that the scent... Which I wasn’t expecting. Smooth bitterness followed by unsweetened cocoa. Not really alcohol and a nice roasted malt undertones. Dry finish and good medium body.

A very dark ruby-red with a white head. Spice and caramel on the nose, full bodied with hints of hops and spice. The long linger is delicious and clean.
