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.

Last bottle out of my cellar. CAnít believe I hvaenít reviewed this year. dark brown...pours black. 2 finger head subsides quick reminds me of coffee beans in colour. Smells of dried malts and prunes. Taste is pretty deep so hard to discern a lot. I get cereal, peanuts and dark chocolate. Slight level of earthiness and a finish thatís sweet and full of burnt chocolate and marshmallows. Very warming.

Oil black with dark tan head. Good retention. Smell is delicious. Alcohol and malt mainly, some espresso and lots of chocolate. Acidic and milky with some excellent bite and a very thin body for the style. The flavors combine and blend very well together. Doesnít necessarily taste like a strong porter but oh well.

Originally reviewed: 4/13/10. Poured into a goblet. Pours a thick dark black with a moderate-sized tan head on top. Dissipates to a thin ring around the edge; leaves some spotty lace. The nose is somewhat underwhelming for this big beer. Iím getting some faint coffee, cocoa powder, and a wash of citrus hops on the end. The body is creamy smooth. Spot-on for the style. As far as flavor goes, this one is not big and bold up front either. Definite roasted malts are present with some slight alcohol burn. The aftertaste is dark coffee which is excellent. Mild cocoa presence. This isnít the best Baltic Iíve ever had, but as I continued to drink this one, I liked it more and more. Not bad at all.

Robust aroma when opened and poured. Distinctive hints of coffee and chocolate and a full texture that speaks to the strong base built from Malts. LongTrail should be proud of this interpretation of the classic porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark pour, frothy head. Slightly metallic aroma. Roasty and slightly chocolatey, but a little lactic sourness. Eh.

Srong tastes of chocolate and coffee. Surprisingly medium body for such a strong tasting beer. Great aroma too. Little bit of a burn in the finish. Overall a very good beer.

These brewmaster beers are surprisingly good. Aroma is roast, chocolate, lactose. Reminds me of a nice milk stout. Taste is more of the same with a nice roastyness and well hid alcohol.

BeerViking (2472) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2012
Very dark brown with a coffee-coloured crema and aromas of demerara, a little liquorice and leather, a hint of fruit cake, just the faintest note of milk chocolate. Then a big rich body, with roast coffee, a little burnt dark fruit and a touch of treacle, some creaminess and liquorice coming through, followed by a bitter-burnt treacle finish.

Rich and miky but with a great roasty dryness that really balances out. This is another very impressive Vermont beer
