3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle while wearing the T-shirt. Pours pitch black with a big, frothy, brown head. Aroma has coffee, heavy malt roast and a slight smoke. Taste is a little more smoked than the aroma. Dark dark chocolate, espresso, tickling alcohol, but besides that, alcohol is well hidden. Fairly high carbonation, and a slightly odd body for an imperial porter. Still pretty nice, tho.
