2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Total Wine Boca Raton. Pours Black with very little head. Doesn’t leave much lacing in the glass. Can’t say I’m getting much on the nose. A little syrupy sweet on the nose. Not getting a lot of interesting roasted flavor. Hides the alcohol well. It’s a miss for me.

"A little smoke, chocolate, coffee and fruit greet the nose. Similar in taste with the bitterness and the smoke coming out a little more. Not bad, but not what I have grown accustomed to within the style. OK for a porter, but foran imperial, falls a tad short."

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose of sweet malts, and chocolate, with notes vanilla. Pours a solid black with a short lived tan head and minimal lacing. The pallet provides a taste of milk chocolate, toasted malts, and caramel. Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Overall, a excellent imperial porter. Rich and smooth. Well done Napa Smith.

Pours near black with little head. Scent is pretty nice, bit of chocolate. Was expecting smokiness from the name, this was not the case. Instead what you have is a very smooth taste of chocolate and dark fruit. Tasty stuff.

Imperial porter på 8%, hade förvänta mig mer. Rött lätt i kroppen och smaken, ABVn skiner igenom lite i smaken.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. The pour is a deep brown, with a reddish transparency to it. The head is moderate and nice tan color. It fades down pretty quickly and leaves a light film and minimal lacing. The aroma is sweet. There is a lot of licorice and malt. The finish on the aroma is a light chocolate. The taste is very similar. It's a little thicker than I thought it would be. There is the licorice and malt that dominate, and the back end is more of a chocolate milk kind of aftertaste. Pretty good
