Clearly a hybrid within the style. Perfect balance of vanilla, coffee, and roasted malt? Most beers that attempt this, e.g., breckenridge vanilla porter, miss the boat by over-emphasizing one of the three flavors (vanilla in that case, leaving a medicinal and unbalanced taste). This beer melds them perfectly. Awesome!

Aroma of smoked malt and espresso. Pours a dark brown with a short lasting tan head. A delicious taste of chocolate, malt and a hint of coffee. Creamy feel with a mildly bitter chocolate finish.

It’s been a long time since we had this, but I have to add to the system. We gave 3.5 so it was above average and liked the chocolate and slight vanilla. It was a little coffee but not much, and almost a bitter nut taste. Tap

Wow all I can say is this one is incredibly flat. Some chocolate flavor.Almost feels like someone left this one on the counter overnight and I’m drinking it the next morning.

Pours dark brown with an off white head. Lots of vanilla, cinnamon, and toffee in the nose. Lots of vanilla flavor...almost entirely vanilla...surprised it isn’t better balanced with the coffee...or the uhhh, porter. Medium mouthfeel with that vanilla astringent aftertaste. An alright beer...the base beer isn’t good enough to hold up to the vanilla...and im not sure what makes this "imperial" at under 8%.

Roebling espresso vanilla imperial porter. lots of words. Rich dark brown brew with a very fine almost not there head of tan bubbles. The aroma is slightly sweet vanilla over a richly roasted dark chocolate malt. Taste is initially a bit sweet but resolves into a nice roasted dark chocolate and black coffee with a bit of cream bitter. body is full and silky. a very decent porter.

On tap pours black with tan head. Had a nitro version on tap not sure if the usual is usually a nitro. Really good, coffee, vanilla, chocolate, toffee. Very roasty then finished sweet.
