Please enjoy this convenient distraction from your daily life. We sure enjoyed taking a break from our everyday "grind" one afternoon at the brewery to meet a very passionate local coffee roaster who was interested in a possible collaboration. This liquid is our story.

Aroma is dark fruits and a bit of booze. Very thin light head with minimal lacing. Pours a very dark brown. Not the flavor bomb I expected given its an imperial porter with coffee and vanilla, but damn is this nice. Definitely serve this at cellar temp, its WAY better as it warms from the fridge. Their claim of this beer being "masterfully blended" is not a false one. Light vanilla flavors give way to subtle coffee notes. Great balance; no flavor is overpowering. There is a solid imperial porter background but again, not pronounced. While I typically like in your face beers, this one still impresses me. Mouthfeel is thin, easy to drink with very little carbonation. Overall a great beer, in my opinion.

Black with sweet, coffee, vanilla aroma. Taste is rounded roasted coffee, vanilla, and bourbon. Some roasted malt. Oily and slick but starts out very carbonated

Bottle from Flask. Black with a small brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, heavy coffee and vanilla. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and roasted rather bitter finish with a little warming alcohol. Oily and smooth. More carbonated than most imperial porters/stouts but that doesnt detract for me. 170916

Poured from a tap, the aroma is part vanilla and part Kahlua. Coffee is not present throughout and I didnt know it was supposed to be there until I read the label online. Sweet and more than a little syrupy while being 10W-40 thick. Nonetheless, very tasty.

emusche (204) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Pours black with very thin, quickly dissipating head; lacing is non-existent. Notes of vanilla and coffee in the nose, but balanced and not leaning too far towards either aroma. The bourbon vanilla bean comes through in the flavor, and cuts the coffee nicely. This is pretty well-balanced. But the mouthfeel is thin, and the lack of carbonation makes it too flat. This is fine, but could have been much better.

Pours a jet black with a touch of brown head. Nice full body, tastes an smell of a nicely balance base Porter with a punch of coffee and hit of vanilla. Very nice breakfast beer!
