2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours out in a black colour with a firm tan coloured head. Really sticky sweet aroma of brown sugar, white sugar, caramel and milky chocolate. Full-bodied with sticky sweet notes of chocolate, cookies, and boring milky French coffee. Long sweet finish of chocolate sauce, caramel with hints of hazelnuts. Way too sweet and it’s definitely lacking soul.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
