UPDATED: MAY 5, 2005 Nice imperial. Maybe just a little sweet and the body is a little thin. Aroma is kind of thin also with notes of toffee, coffee and some caramel. A little too seet up front but the coffee bitterness helps balance it our. Canít really drink too much of it. Maybe just a bit dissappointing but only because itís Pizza Port Solana weíre talking about; one of the best breweries in the world IMO. ReRerate 050505 bottle: Better than when I first had. Sweetness seemed to mellow a bit. Be careful while pouring it, it has a very aggressive tan head. Coffee dominates at first, but fades to an outstanding cherry, slightly sour twang. Aroma is burting with purple grape juice, cherry and toffee, and chocolate. Wow,Iím glad I bought a couple bottles.

Roasted malt, chocolate, cream, latte nose. Much of the same in the mouth with plenty of sweet choclate and coffee notes in the mouth with a touch of cherry and dark chocolate, and alcohol.. Firm mouthfeel with a light carbonation balance this one out nicely. Finishes unexpectedly dry with more roasted malt.

This pretty much rocked, and it could have been better if i wasnít hungover when I had it, so thatís impressive. A good stout all the way around, good coffee flavor and espresso aroma. great chocolate color with white head. one of several fab beers I had in San Diego :)

jonwell (104) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Very nice impy stout. Pours black with a dark brown head. Maybe a bit more burnt coffee flavor than I like, but overall very complex and enjoyable.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2004 re-rate: bottled version. Extremely creamy head w/ a tasty chocolate/coffe flavor. really enjoyed it. on draft, pizza port solana beach great roasty aroma, very dry on the palate. Medium bodied. This isnít a íbigí imperial stout. Very tasting, but extremely drinkable

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2005 Iím a bit disappointed here, but first let me Thank Chris, this beer couldnít have been any fresher. Black, pour with a big brown head. Heavenly aroma, chocolate, roasts, coffee, etc. Flavor was pretty sweet, but not as distinct as many fine Imperials. Body was slightly thin for the style. Sweet finish. Decent Imperial, but not for what I expect from Pizza Port.

Fluffy rich head, almost creamy like... Black in color. Smells like coffee and spices. Wonderful alcohol aftertaste. Very fullfilling.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 18, 2004
This imperial stout pours with a black body topped by a thin to medium thick, brown, lasting head with lots of lacing. The aroma is sweet yet bitter and malty with nice roasted coffee notes. The flavor is slightly sweet yet bitter, malty and roasty with notes of coffee and a hint of dark chocolate. Full bodied, smooth yet slightly tingly and warming.
