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.

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

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thick black pour with creamy tan head, aroma brought notes of big caramel, toffee, nice roast, nuts, hints of bourbon, lots of oak in there, some dark chocolate and roast in there. Taste is a nice mix of roast, chocolate, and coffee, slight dry oak and bourbon in there, hints of nuts, caramel and toffee, finishing sweet, slightly dry. Nothing over the top, but nice and balanced.

12/1/12. 12oz bottle thanks to nulledge! Black pour with a nice khaki head. The aroma shows nice wood, light bourbon, vanilla, and a hint of tartness. The flavor has chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, wood, and again the beginnings of a sourness. This might be on its way to infection (or a bad bottle), but it is tasty right now.

GMCC2181 (1499) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle via Sloth! Black in color, think mocha colored head that faded quickly... Strong lacing left on the glass. Nose of booze, vanilla, coffee, toast, roasted malts and nuts... The vanilla shines through intially... nice roasted malts, light coffee, toasty/toffee. Body is a little on the thin side, easy to sip on. The alcohol is well hidden. Overall: Good imperial porter. Salute to my friend BJ.... may he rest in peace.

Bottle. Pours dark with a tan head. Aroma is bourbon, caramel and malts. Flavor is a blast of bourbon followed by smooth caramel, malts and some vanilla. A very nice beer. Glad I was able to try it.

Bottle courtesy of the Cheeseman. Pours a black cola with a medium sized tannish-light brown head. Aroma of sweet milk chocolate malts, toffee, light hazelnut, vanilla, coffee, toasted oak chips and light bourbon. Taste of milk chocolate malt, toffee, coffee, light vanilla, mild bourbon, hazelnut and oak wood chips. Very nice blend of flavors.
