This is a robust porter crossing the line with an american stout, but double (Imperial) at 10% Alcohol, which you will notice on the taste as a warming alcohol. Let this treat warm up to about 50-55F and the complex malt (roast, chocolate, toast) will come forward really nice. The aftertaste is a bit astringent from the alcohol, not just the dark malts. But that subsides as it warms up as well.

JLLSU (238) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - APR 1, 2013
12oz can brought back by a friend from CBC 2013----> NB globe. Pours a dark brown with a nice khaki head and a weird dotted lace. Smells of heavy quality coffee and light roast. Taste is good bitter coffee and a bit of milk chocolate. Fairly light on the tongue with surprisingly high carbonation. This is a dangerously drinkable 10% beer.

jdskinns (209) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2013
Can. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is alcohol, coffee, and sweet. Taste hides the alcohol surprisingly well. A good amount of coffee and some sweetness in there too. This is very good.

beerbill (3569) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2013
12 oz. can. Pours a clear dark brown that allows light to pass along the edges and a trace of light to pass through the body. There is a moderate-large brown head that lasts through the first quarter of the glass and leaves partial lace. Pleasant aroma of coffee with notes of cocoa. The flavor is coffee along some lightly roasted malt and some cocoa. Some mild coffee/roast bitterness at the back of the throat after the swallow. Medium bodied. Enjoyable.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Ar: Butterscotch, toasty caramel, some cocoa. Ap: Deep brown, opaque - large light tan head with great retention and thick, rocky lacing. T: Big burst of coffee up front, astringent roast - high bitterness - butterscotch, caramel, and nougat - finish coffee and a some light cocoa notes, and a lot of roast. P: Medium-full body with medium-high carbonation - finish is medium-dry. O: Tasty mixture of flavors, but there is just too much astringency here.
