JW77 hooks it up. Dark brown pour. Coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and some molasses in the aroma. Flavor is much the same. A great coffee note makes this one a real treat.

Thanks to JW77 for this one. A: Pours dark black with a small tan head. S: Simple aromas, coffee, chocolate, and a blast of roast. T: What you smell is what you taste. Fresh coffee, chocolate malt, with a nice roasty undertone. M: Fairly light in body, good carbonation.

Tap at Barcade. I had the 2008 vintage. Very decent but it didnít live up to my expectations. Everything about the beer was a little light. Aroma of slightly roasted malts and mild coffee. Flavor was pleasant, some malty sweetness, tasty notes of chocolate and coffee. Clean with a hint of bitter bite on the finish. Sort of like a Brownstone with some coffee.

On tap at the Blind Tiger. A great looking beer. Black with tan head.Coffee and chocolate. Nice fizz. I liked sipping this and I liked gulping this. Unfortunately, it didnít last long. Finishes with a hoppy kick.

Tap at Blind Tiger today. Pours black with a tan ring. Nose is huge with a big old punch of coffee. Taste shares the coffee intensity as well as the coffe choco richness in this great impy porter.

750ml swingtop from New Beer Distributors courtesy BA RblWthACoz..Thanks bro! Pours opaque black with a massive, four inch head of dark beige. After a very slow retreat, a solid skim coat of foam remained along with a myriad of ripped sheets of lacework. Aromatics are a blend of chocolate and coffee. Plenty roasty with hints of nougat, brownie batter, and Kahlua. Thickish bodied with an extremely creamy mouthfeel. Crushed velvet. The pallet starts off with strong but smooth coffee notes, quickly followed by dark chocolate and roasted malts. A hint of char pulls through along with lingering burnt brownie bits. Finishes with a drying, roasty bite and lingering chocolate-drizzled coffee. Nicely balanced with the coffee and chocolate playing off each other. Very drinkable and smooth.
