COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans... and put them in one vessel. The beans of bygone brewers, united with cacao and coffee, to create a trinity of roasted, rich, and savory flavors.

On draft at Nobi House .. . pours a deep ruby .. . great lacing .. . mild mouth .. . would never call this a imperial porter besides the abv burn at the end .. . decent but nothing worth seeking out .. . . "i don’t eat red meat" - ahhh, that’s why you have a dress on...

scarletfire65 (968) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Can, at home. Deep transparent brown, creamy mocha head. Aroma of fresh coffee, chocolate, oak, some booze on the nose. Super creamy palate. Rich coffee flavor, sweet chocolate, vanilla, very mild bitterness on the finish. A great dessert beer.

TomDecapolis (4500) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 18, 2013
On tap. Pours a deep almost black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt and light coffee notes. Flavor was a mix of the same. Was hoping for a bi tmore coffee and chocolate character but still well done. Want to snag some cans.

kidmartinek (3728) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2013
This beer makes a great pour, black with a 2 inch tan head. Let it air out and the head holds to 3/16". The aroma is mild coffee and cacao. Skim milf texture with a bitter coffee bite and start and a coffee dominated airy, foamy body. Deceptively mild.

BrewBoxer (2060) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Draft. Deep black . Nice foam surrounding the glass, some coffee beans and hops in the toasty flavor. Booze is not overly present till it warms up. Pretty good. Excited to taste the differences from the nitro can version ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the tall skinny 12oz can into a balloon tulip. Strong head off the bat, dissipates into some nice lacing and no head. Not overly malted but unfortunately there is a metallic aroma and taste. Slight bitterness of dark chocolate and coffee on the back end but not very prominent. Picked up the last 4 cans at the bottle shop. Probably trade/extra away. Just OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

blklab2007 (1987) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Super fresh can poured a dark cola brown in color with a coating of off white head that retained a ring on the glass. Aroma has coffee beans, dark chocolate cocoa powder (is there such a thing), light roast, and grains. Mouth feel is medium but does have a full texture. Flavor has dark bitter chocolate, grains, very light coffee, and some earthy minerals. Certainly a solid imperial porter but it is missing the big leading flavor.

crazyvin (1966) - New York, USA - FEB 17, 2013
A nice brown body with a tan head that had little retention and no lace. Aroma was a mix of mildly roasted coffee malts and a good profile of cocoa malts, some mild peat notes. Flavor was well balanced slightly stronger on the roasted coffee malts than I expected from the aroma and the cocoa was just right. The alcohol was well hidden. Somewhat elevated carbonation, and it could have had a heavier mouth feel. Overall it was decent.

egajdzis (5365) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2013
nearly opaque dark brown color with a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, burnt wood, and a bit of cocoa. Taste of more roast, cocoa, espresso vanilla bean, and a light alcohol in the finish.
