daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Bottle. Nearly black pour, light brown head. Aroma hits with what smells like cascade hops followed by some molasses, light chocolate and prunes. Flavor is hoppy on the start, molasses, dried fruit, chocolate, espresso and followed by more hops. Nice brew!

phaleslu (6807) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Draft at the brewpub, served in a pint glass. Labeled "Porter." Pours a deep but not opaque brown with a finger of beige head that laces all the way down. Aroma of chocolate, roasty and toasty malts, nuts, coffee, and earth. Flavor is the same set of notes. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a rich, robust mouthfeel. Just a solid porter that teeters on imperial.

Dark brown with a fizzy tan head. Roasted grain aroma and taste with cocoa powder and coffee syrup notes. Not bad.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 29, 2012
tap at the brewpub feb 2012-listed as porter, however its the same alcohol content as this "imperial" listing-same beer im sure. pours deep brown with a small white head and some lacing. nose is huge-char and roasted notes very robust and big-flavors are robust as well char, hops and lite coffee, long roasty finish and nice body-a very solid porter that would be good on those many cold Flagstaff days. One of the better brewpub porters i have ever had.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2010
’imperial’ porter on tap 7/6/10 at the brewpub. typical porter color ruby brown with a tannish head. it smells of lactose, wood, floral hops, nuts, coffee and chocolate with a hint of alcohol. the flavor is the same with the addition of black raisins and some molasses. it is pretty dry throughout. medium bodied crisp mouth feel and texture. not a strong effort but certainly not a poor one. 6/3/7/4/14/3.4

Tasted 6/14/10. 22oz bomber. Opaque with a dark brown hue. Big bubbled khaki head. Aromas of soggy malts, grape-nuts cereal and grassy hops. Interesting. Faint spicy mint and dark chocolate. Mild smoke and coffee grounds. This is at cellar temperature, and I think this aspect really helps in the olfactory. It also accentuates this style of robust beer. Too much coffee and slowly following up with the dark chocolate and fudge. Bitter and tart flavors. Smoked coffee beans and bittersweet chocolate. Not quite as toasty as I like my porters. The alcohol is ample yet plays well with the sticky body and keeps you sipping.

Finally the last of my backlog from my week in Arizona! I drank this last of my sampler at the brewpub. I have never been more tired at 3 in the afternoon and i was fighting to stay awake but still this brew tasted damn good. pours jet black and you get coffee and hops on nose. tastes of hops, espresso, molasses, vanilla, and cola. hint of smokiness on finish and well carbonated.
