Roasty malty, coffee, and a more subtle vanilla aroma. Taste is coffee up front, a little alcohol heat, and vanilla on the finish. Moderate amount of carbonation and little to no head. Overall one of my favorite porters and definitely one I’d recommend.
A top 5 coffee beers you can hope to find. We’ll balanced qith just the right amount of carbonation provides the perfect mouth feel for this kind of beer. Alcohol is well hidden giving you a rich coffee-chocolate stout that is very drinkable. caesar (7165) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2017
Bottle from Beer Republic, 66 cl sample. Dark color, medium frothy head. Aroma of dry vanilla, coffee and roast. Bit sweet in taste, dry vanilla, coffee. Bit powdery instead of creamy and smooth. Expected more actually. Or maybe it is because Im major pissed off by what RB is doing at the moment. jykoh2002 () - - JUL 21, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2017 This one is the best Ballast Point beer to me. Always way beyond my expectation. meccahh69lol (249) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - JUL 20, 2017
This one is way more impressive than I remember it being. Smells of coconut, chocolate, and coffee. Appearance is thick black with a medium thin head. It tastes of rich mocha, vanilla, and oak. Very smooth, velvety, and easy drinking for a 10% abv imperial bomb. Good for a hot ass sweltering day of blaring Neurosis records and making homemade garlic chili cheese fries.

Not much of an imperial porter drinker. Nice clean taste
Artwork on the bottle is great. Was nice to try, would not buy again
