Thor, one of our favorite four-legged friends had a big, gentle heart to match his huge, smiling, slobbering face. Jeff, Thor’s best friend and owner, says that the gentle giant would pull him in the direction of the brewery on their walks, to park it by the garage door, get some love and smell what’s cookin’. He brightened everyone’s day and is missed by all. This Imperial Porter is made in memory of the big guy. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Great Lakes Mastiff Rescue.

Bottle... Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a fleeting, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is a lush, bold marriage of fudge and mocha. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and busy carbonation. The flavor is roasty and chocolaty with an oily, viscous, smooth-as-silk finish. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

22 oz bottle shared with the group. I had to get this bottle since the dog looksvery much like one of my dogs. Pours dark reddish brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have dark chocolate, dark fruits, some roasted malt, cocoa and coffee, the alcohol is well hidden. Decent stuf.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a light tan head. Aromas of coffee and cocoa. Flavor is sweet and roasty with notes of toffee. A little bit boozy finish to this one from the abv. Not bad.

Bottle share at DLD 2014. Pour is deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma and flavor of coffee grounds, dark caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, and espresso. Finish has a bit of lactose and licorice. Strange porter, but good.

AWISLguy (2535) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bomber from Andersonville Wine & Spirits. Batch 320/321, so batch date was early January. Cellared a month, and served colder than cellar temperature. Pour a dark brown with a cafe au lait head. Strings and spots of lace. Aroma has lots of caramel and molasses; later down in the glass, there is chocolate and some roast and maybe black licorice. Taste is of sweet caramel, bakers chocolate, espresso and some lactose. Medium to full bodied. Some alcohol present. Finishes nicely blended between bitter and sweet. Another stellar effort from Pipeworks!
