12 oz bottle for 2.49. Pours black with a slight amber hue and a tan head. Looks nice. Smells like a porter; chocolate, malts and a little vanilla too. Tastes similar. Body is thinner than I like in a porter though. A good imperial porter.

Sixer from Samís Quik Shop. Pours a sorta thin-looking deep dark brown with a minimal head. Nose shows chocolate and plums, as well as some toffee and fig hints. But mostly I got a shit-ton of chocolate and plums.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate toasted cereal and strong coffee for the malt, light to moderate resin for the hops, earth for the yeast, with prune, charcoal and vanilla in the background. Head is small, fizzy, light tan, with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palalte is medium to full, slick with a soft carbonation and a chalky finish. Smooth and toasty, bold an tasty. Very nice Imperial Porter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with yellow-gold at the edges. An inch of warm tan head. Moderate chocolate, lighter caramel and butterscotch aroma. bit of raisin bread and sweet cinnamon toast in the oven. Smells a bit lagerish, but the flavor gives it away. Creamy body of moderate heaviness. Flavor is bready cocoa powder to a clean, light bitterness of the forest. A decent Baltic porter, not a flavor bomb, but fairly consumable, a bit dry.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle--pours dark with a large, frothy head that reduces, sticks around and leaves lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste was cocoa, sweet with a touch of nuts. Somewhat thin finish with no notes of the alcohol level for an Imperial, Iím fine with that. Held up well from winter. Produce place. 1.99

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 19.05.2013, 0,35l bottle @ home:
Big creamy longlasting head. Aroma is smooth, licorice, dark roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, toffee, nuts, salty caramel, some hops. Taste is is roasted sour-ish coffee and dark malts, alcohol, grass, burnt caramel, licorice, bitter dark chocolate, nuts. Longlasting bitterness. Some years of aging would probably be a good thing for this one.
