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.

22 oz for 6 bucks. Pours black with a small light brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasty and a little fruit. Taste is slightly chocolate and oat up front, slight licorice leading to a coffee flavor on the back end that fades relatively quickly but lets you know it’s there. Body is pretty thin - thinner than I like in a Imperial Porter. Slightly creamy mouthfeel keeps it from being below average in that department. Overall this is quite a solid Imperial Porter. Not too many of these kinds of beers exist (at least in my market) so it’s definitely one of the better ones. Recommended.

Idiosynkrasie (4372) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2014
650ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with small, frothy, rapidly diminishing and completely fading, tan head. Dark malty aroma has hints of chocolate and black cherries, bitter hoppy overtones. Taste is dry hoppy, an unpleasant bitterness of "burnt something" has a medicamentous character, repressed dark malty background with a touch of chocolate and black cherries; somehow thin and light-bodied. Don’t like it.
