Pours deep black with thin brown head. Nose is mostly roasted malts and chocolate, with something milky. Aromas are roasted malts, coffee, black chocolate, dark fruits, liquorice, pepper and alcohol. Kind of a milky sweetness. Thick texture, full body, medium carbonation. Long bitter and roasted finish, balanced by sweetness. Very great and perfectly balanced imperial porter! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
