Tap at Khyber Pass in Philly. Pours deep black with a lighter beige head. Nice retention. Nose is spicy chili salsa and green peppers. Has that vegetal DMS character from the coffee adjunct unfortunately. A big pet peeve of mine. Taste is light bodied, chalky, powdery, chili salsa, green peppers. Salsa bowl. Not good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nuplastikk (5165) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Tap at sidedoor. Burgundy brown body. Steady creamy off white head. Massive coffee tones, almost too much really, but really has a quality coffee feel. Full bodied. Tasty, but hard to drink a lot of.

Oakes (13601) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2015
Draft @ Laser Wolf. Dark brown, lots of coffee on the nose. The taste is coffee with some fairly smooth, lightly chocolatey dark malts. Very coffeeish but clean, roasty and pretty good.

dagimp (847) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Growler from Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting. Pours a dead black/brown color. Good amount of frothy white head. Aroma is straight coffee. Mouthfeel is lighter than what Iíd expect, but then again, it is a porter, so itís probably dead on. Little carbonation. Taste is cocoa and cold brewed coffee. cold brewed, because there is very little bitterness to it. Reminded me of a dialed down version of Speedway Stout... which is a high complement. Damn good beer.

Tobacco scent and vanilla peeks out. Coffee flavor hits right away. Chocolate is sweet and light. Dark brown/black. Tap

hopwine (572) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Intense coffee melds well with a base beer that leans towards roasty and dry. Well-made and clean but pretty simple.

Drinks above its weight. The wine noted in the coffee comes through quite strong and gives this porter an interesting character even if itís not one Iím crazy about. Different.

BOSSbrewer (2706) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 16, 2015
On tap at 28 Springs. Pours super dark brown to black. Aroma is coffee and roast. Lots of coffee on the flavor. And then more coffee. Somewhat bitter. Decent but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2015
[Tap] Jet black pour with a small tan head. Aromas of coffee grounds, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Charred grains, bakers chocolate, bitter coffee, rye, light vanilla and ashy malts in the taste. Good flavor overall, but it seems a little thin. Mild carbonation. Good looking lacing left over on the glass. Tasting notes from 9/2014.

skmikeg (1402) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Pours pitch black with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, spicy hops, sweet malts, and molasses. Taste is about the same as the aroma with the addition of some pine and wine notes. Has a medium-full body with a pretty creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, slightly dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty and interesting imperial porter.
