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.

I enjoy this beer on draft over bottle. This brew pours a deep raisin red color with an off-white tan lasting head. With hints of bittersweet chocolate, coffee, and a slight tart cherry nose, this 8% imperial porter is a knockout.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Pours jet black, with a moderate light brown head that fades quickly and leaves good lacing. Nose is chocolate and dark roast malt. Taste is chocolate, malt, and a hint of coffee. Clean finish. Very tasty, well-balanced.

Black as can be and the thick head gives it a pleasant appearance. The initial onslaught of malts is not as full bodied as you would think, though. Still, a great brew.

Flaska från 2012. Svart som natten. Lätt oljig. Krämig, lätta chokladtoner och mjuk rökighet. Skön lätt vitpeppar i eftersmak

Black; in no way, shape, or form is this transparent. Luxcious foam the color of a dusty lane... Smell bing cherries, and raspberry fudge cake; razzleberry juice and cocoa. Taste fruit bombs that drop right into smokey baker’s chocolate. Sour tingle, and faint wheat grass juice reminds me of bright clover honey. It’s beautiful the way the flavors swirl up an alcohol vapor in the mouth, and combine aroma and flavor into one large bite of raspberry/bing cherry ganache.

HoppyPete (27) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 17, 2011
I found this to be a wonderful tasting beer. It poured a beautiful rich ruby red / black. Slight head. Rich chocolate and coffee taste, with delightful lingering after taste. The aroma was a complex mix of coffee, licorice and chocolate.

22oz blue wax sealed bottle pours deep brown with a huge molasses, caramel, toffee and coffee aroma. Lite tan head that is creamy. Big flavor going on. Nice rich body and mouth feel. AA bit syrupy, but very good. Molasses and hot chocolate flavors dominate, but subtle bourbon and Belgian chocolate bitterness are there too. Great beer. Good on a day where you just swam in 34 degree water.

Subtle, inviting aroma of cocoa and espresso. Rich, tarlike body, medium caramel head. Tastes like chocolate-coffee goodness with a hint of hazelnut kick. Palate is smooth and creamy. Overall pretty delish.
