TheEpeeist (3540) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2013
16.9 oz bottle. Dark brown with a big bubbled tan head; sheets of lace. Nose is chocolate, rye, dates and molasses. Medium to full body with a tang. Taste is coffee and milk chocolate, getting bitter with licorice, fading into a dry rye finish. Simple but well conceived and executed.

Bottle. Pours black with tan brown head. Nose and taste of rye, roasted chocolate malt, roasted coffee, vanilla and milk chocolate. Finishes quite dry with a rye/chocolate finish. Nice roast up front. Body is on the thinner side of medium for an imperial porter.

jonnyguns (1102) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle from mane liquor. First beer of 2013! Jet black thick oily pour with a small tanned head. Nose showcases heavy notes of espresso with hints of milk chocolate and maybe vanilla. Taste is quite roasty. More roasted coffee and malts coming through. Hints of smoke too. The rye smooths it out a bit too. Wonderful beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gription79 (2612) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Poured from a 500ml bottle, thanks to Santa. This is very rich and warming. Lots of chocolate, malty, coffee, the rye adds a slight spicy note. This is very well balanced and tasty.

BarryKonrad (107) - NORWAY - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Norway. Pours deep black, with a thick and dark beige head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, but very interestingly quite hoppy and fruity as well. The mouthfeel is great, thick and oily. Flavour is roasted malts and coffee with some sweetness added in. Slightly bitter aftertaste, but little trace of alcohol. Oh, I like this.

maneliquor (3469) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours very dark brown with a big off white head. Nose shows vanilla and milk chocolate with some balanced espresso tones. Quite roasty with a hint of piney hops. Some wood notes and piney hops come through in the taste. Vanilla and sweet milk chocolate finish this one off very smoothly. Great stuff
