3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is not very strong here, but displays hints of roast and dark malts. Deep brown color with a stable tan head that drops to a thin film until the end of the glass. Deep sweetness with mild roast character and very light hop bitterness. The body is thinner than I like a porter to have, though still solid enough to satisfy. Finishes clean and has no lingering film on the palate. Luckily I had a 750, so I could see how the beer improves as it warms. Would probably be a great porter on a beer engine.

Really solid porter with all of the expected qualities. Dark mahogany pour with a creamy latte head. Cocoa, roasted coffee bean, vanilla, caramel, and toffee. Loads of malt and a thick, malt-like consistency. Nicely done!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown in color, with a pasty light brown head, this porter really isnít all that attractive in the nose. Thereís a little spice and roast present, but otherwise itís pretty empty. Itís a little sweet in the mouth, like cane sugar, and is somewhat pleasant. Although Iím unimpressed with this beer in general, itís still pretty good. I just donít understand the hype.

Bottle from Spirits Brick. Porued a medium density dark black body with a creamy dark beige head. Aroma of chocolate creme soda, vanilla, dark toast, hint of alcohol. Creamy body with average carbonation that leans slightly towards being strong, sort of fuller for a non Impy but at 7.5% itís not like this is a "light" porter. Flavor of dark toast, cocoa, vanilla, pudding and slight roastiness. Good beer.
