Bottle share at KBBS day, nice dark pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Taste was a bit subdued with barrel, alcohol and a bit of tartness coming through.

Leighton (14040) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2013
Bottle shared on the RBWG 2013 bus. Pours black with a creamy, tan head. Fairly fruity stuff, lots of cherries and raisins. Tons of sweetness, light earthy bitterness. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly syrupy. Moderate warmth to finish. Some chocolate, more dark fruits. Good.

tricyclist (1044) - Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2013
I had such high expectations... The nose is alright... Smells of funky cheese...? Some bourbon and dark chocolate, plenty of vanilla... Flavor is awesome, with loads of bourbon and vanilla. Not so much chocolate.. Actually, yeah, loads of awesome milk chocolate!! Loads!! Great medium body, and super drinkable!

Bottle on the bus at RBWG. Thought I had tried this, but apparently not. Well I tried it again, damnit. Another solid imperial porter/stout from Tyranena--its been a while since I had once of these. Lots of barrel, nuttiness, coffee, and cocoa. Basically what youd expect from a well done ba stout/porter. Thanks whoever shared this.

GT2 (9360) - San Diego County, California, USA - FEB 26, 2013
355mL floating around the RBWG bus. Hell yeah. Pours an opaque inky black. Rockier, mocha foam. Nose is pickles, black olive, sugar, licorice root, sweet rye bread. Taste is buttery, creamy, whipped cream oil, chocolate cake, frosting, sugary dessert, mild alcohol heat. Palate is creamy, dense, dessert heavy. Very nice.

From a bottle shared at RBWG! Commercial description has good notes on appearance, aroma, and taste, so I will tell you this, it is big and ballsy. Very good, but Im not sure where the line between imperial porter and stour is drawn.

Aroma is mostly dark roasted malt - coffee and a faint roasted meat note. There is a hint of dark chocolate as well. After the malt fades you pick up the barrel character with some vanilla and nuts as well as a slight oak note. Pours black with dark brown highlights on the edges. Just a thin light brown head that quickly recedes to the edges where it lingers. No lacing and medium sized legs. Flavor starts out with sweet chocolate and toffee then the coffee shows up adding a mocha like character. There is a light dark fruit note in the finish but then the barrels character sets in. The finish has bourbon along with vanilla, coconut and nuts. There is a slight oak note as well. The alcohol in the finish is nice and clean. The bitterness is fairly low in relation to the malt notes. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium low carbonation. The astringency is low but present and the alcohol warmth is moderate. Overall this is a really nice porter that has integrated nicely with the bourbon barrel characteristics. The alcohol isn't too hot and the barrel shows through more than the bourbon. Very enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
