harrisoni (16724) - 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.

jhp40219 (440) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 13, 2015
22 oz bottle. Pours black with a decent one-finger tan head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of alcohol, milk chocolate, molasses, and coffee with a decent bit of citrus hop coming through as well. Upon tasting, a big boozy alcohol hits initially followed by somewhat bitter milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, black licorice, dates, and citrus hops cutting through all that to make their presence known. Big lingering finish of milk chocolate, licorice and those hops. Full bodied, creamy texture, soft to average carbonation. Just an excellent imperial porter! Ska proves once again that they are one of the premier breweries in the US! Excellent job!

SlackerMads (2684) - DENMARK - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown close to black with a medium sized light brown head. Nose is syrupy with some roasted malt. The flavour is surprisingly hoppy; herbal, honey with the malt more in the background giving notes of molasses, grain, dark dried fruit, toffee. Also some earth and wood in there. Medium/full body, oily texture, ok carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Feels a bit syrupy and unrefined.
