In the glass, from a 750ml bottle. Light scent of roasted nuts and coffee on the nose, over a brown frothy head and black black porter. Surprisingly sweet on the tounge, but overall a bit light. Very smooth, but there is a long bitter coffee finish. Overall, this felt a bit light for what I’d want from an Imperial Porter. Almost watery, which hides the alcohol more than is probably desirable for such a potent brew. I expected more to be honest, this was, well, a good porter - not an exceptional one.

On tap at the local taphouse. Great imperial porter. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, and vanilla. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and very long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Black, with an off-white head.
