COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
King of the alley — this Imperial Porter reigns supreme with a mighty 8% Alcohol by Volume and 60 IBUs.Creamy, chocolaty sweet, with hints of coffee and Bing cherry, the Nefarious is wickedly outrageous.

PorterPounder (6912) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Amarillo, Tx - Party Stop - Georgia St - 22 oz bomber. Pours an inky, pitch black, with a tight khaki colored head. Aroma has some creosote accents, hints of chocolate, a touch of Kahlua. Flavor is full bodied and bold. Pick up some bittersweet baker’s chocolate, some day old black coffee, some light cherry fruity sweetness. Mouthfeel has a pleasant slickness to it. Very enjoyable.

Nefarious Ten Pin falls just short of the Big Lebowski in terms of its ability to make bowling temporarily cool. Aroma is roasty. Chocolate and subtle fruit flavors. Body seems a bit light for a beer of this type. Otherwise, a solid brew from SKA.

Bottle/Fest. A- Malty, bland. A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, beige head. T- Malty, cocoa, boring. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- Lack much flavor or aroma. Really pretty boring and it’s my favorite style.

slowrunner77 (9010) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 17, 2016
Descrisption is right on - hints of coffee and cherry...also dark roasted malts and chocolate, a hint of lactic quality. Just too light to take seriously as an imperial porter, though. OK.

snoworsummer (4264) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Bomber from the brewery. Pours rich dark brown with a fizzy, bubbly beige head. Tastes like chocolate, creamy, roasted malt with light smoke, and some roasted coffee. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like dark chocolate, roasted malt with light smoke, and nutty roasted coffee.

sonnycheeba (4799) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle. Pours deep dark brown. Aroma is heavy milk chocolate, faint roast, some dark fruit and booze notes, and faint earthy hops. Flavor is slick and creamy with heavy chocolate notes, faint dark fruit sweetness, and a dry woody finish. Full body.

KyotoLefty (8754) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 22, 2015
Bottled. Sweet, lager-like nose, smooth, chocolate, berries. Easy drinking with lots of cocoa and some berries. Comes across like a Baltic Porter all the way.

ZacM612 (480) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Dark brown, almost black, with a good bit of light beige head. Chocolatey aroma, also some nice roasted malts. Taste is also rich chocolate. Nice smooth feel and finish.

zoucrew102 (1180) - - NOV 21, 2015
Bomber. Rich chocolate aroma with roasted malt, coffee and some licorice notes. Pours black with a thin but retentive light brown head with excellent lacing. Starts with rich chocolate and licorice flavors with a good medium body and rich mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with excellent roasted malt flavor with a bit of coffee. Nice porter!

harrisoni (16608) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Bottle from GBBF 2015 and drunk at home. Black beer with thick lasting tan head. Dark chocolate, some dark fruits. smoothish in the mouth, some tar, touch of liquorice. Finish has more of the same. It’s ok, but doesn’t completely wow me. Hides ABV well. Some warmth on the finish. Malty. Brown bread. Some dark cherry. It’s fine.
