Our imperial, Baltic-style porter is inspired by the strong, dark brews exported from Great Britain to Eastern Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries. Rich and flavorful with upfront notes of chocolate, caramel and toffee.

cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2006
Deep dark with a minimal and fading head. Aromas of rich, roasty chocolate and subtle hops. The flavor follows with a medium palate, smooth roasty flavors and a semi-sweet finish. Elegant and highly delicious.

Pours a deep dark brown. Aroma is strong dark malts, dark fruits, dark chocolate. Taste is dark roasted malts, dark fruits, dark chocolate, burnt brown sugar, hint of smoke, hint of vanilla. Complex and better than I expected.

DocJitsu (1559) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2015
Pours a very dark brown with ruby glints around the edges of the glass when held to light. Half finger tan head. Smothers relatively quickly. Mild smoke, lactose, vanilla, and a British porter quality in the aromas. Pretty lively for an impy porter. Very British. Lactose, vanilla, sweet, cream on fruit.

Chocolatey roasty imperial porter. I wanna try one of these old ass 750 bottles because it’s pretty cool.

N3lson1 (867) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 19, 2015
Drank from a nonic glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Pours black with a little bit of beige head. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate. Tastes robustly sweet with a toasted flavor. Not a great Imperial porter...

italianjohn (2778) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2015
Black pour orange hue with a thin off white head .... Aroma of dark fruits, roasted and some sweet chocolate malts .... Taste is of mostly dark fruits, plums, roasted malts and sweet chocolate malts .... Simple and full bodied porter .... Finish has a lingering sweetness .... Smooth and rich brew with a very light lingering bitterness ... Has some oily qualities in the mouthfeel ... Simple and tasty

60minuteman (1252) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Appearance dark brown, good amount of lacing and lots of sediment. Characteristically smooth for a good porter. Notes of chocolate, coffee, malt, oak, hop and bits of citrus really makes this stand out.

Lightrider (344) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Pour is a dark chocolate black with a tan head. Aroma is of chocolate and malt. Taste is thick and full of chocolate and coffee. Finish is full. This is a great porter, I will find more of this.

Strykzone (6218) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2015
12 ounce bottle from mstrcrwly. Very dark with some amber highlights. Just a little foam and quickly disappears. Not a big aroma. I smell some roast and tobacco. The flavor brings some lactic notes along with roasted and toffee. Dark fruit brings an interesting aspect. Alcohol is not so much tasted as the heat is felt in my stomach. Burnt brown sugar. The flavor begins with some harshness but very quickly settles into much smoother tastes. Somehow a zingy feel. Tasty stuff.

Black pour, decent sized head. Lighter carbonation. Roasted malt, dark chocolate aroma and taste. Simple, if not somewhat muted.

12 oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Black hue, zero visibility with mostly lasting light brown fizzy head. Virtually no lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and milk chocolate. Dark roasted malt taste up front with more of a roasted malt and chocolate finish. This had a dry finish. Overall I thought this was a really good beer.
