Black in color with beige head. Aroma of roast coffee. Taste is roasted malt with chocolate. Tastes more stout like than most porters. Overall a pretty solid porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lexington Fest of Ales. Vanilla and chocolate porter with a nice creamy body. Pretty decent overall.

Although Porters are not my favorite, I found this one quite good. Excellent malty flavors coupled with a balanced hop flavor made this a a pleasant drink. I found it very similar to a stout, so Porter purists may not enjoy it as much as I did. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

6/11/2011: Rivertown Roebling Vanilla Espresso Imperial Robust Porter... Aroma: Vanilla and milk chocolate with subtle roasted malt and cocoa. Appearance: Ruby-brown color with a lofty beige-colored head. Flavor: Vanilla and sugary caramel; very soft and subtle roasted coffee beans; cola and a bit of bitterness in the finish. Palate: Soft and smooth; medium-bodied; gentle carbonation. Overall: Drinkable with lots of good intention and POTENTIAL, but too reserved and entirely underwhelming for the style.

Growler fill (draught, 7.8% ABV) from Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #79 for this beer.

Suttree (5224) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Murky black, with a fragile beige head that disappears pretty quickly. Smells like coffee and vanilla, with an ashy note as well. Taste is coffee, vanilla, ash, and a bit of woody bitterness. The vanilla becomes more prominent as it warms.

My only wish is that there were some bourbon involved. The title of imperial porter is not wasted on this beer. Bordering on stout, I enjoyed the barrel and coffee flavors while savoring the coffee after. This is a good one to enjoy when everyone else is asleep and the sun is coming up.

maxwelldeux (3761) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a near black color with almost no head on it. Nose has roasting and just a bit of barrel aging elements in there. Taste also has a little wood, roasting, and some chocolate in there. Quite a nice beer.

maverick32 (21) - Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2013
12 oz bottle poured into a frosted pint glass. Little aroma and just a lacy head. Complex flavours but basically it made be think of a chocolate malt with a kick.

nearbeer (3813) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2013
On tap. Opaque chocolate with a small ring of bubbles. Nose is espresso, chocolate brownie and vanilla. Tastes of quality dark roasted coffee, vanilla, chocolate caramel, dates and a touch of soy sauce. Light-medium body is sweet but well balanced by the roast, and dangerously drinkable with low-medium carbonation.
