UPDATED: JUL 21, 2017 This one is the best Ballast Point beer to me. Always way beyond my expectation. meccahh69lol (223) - 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 Svartvit (574) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2017

Really dark brown color with creamy tan head. Aroma has dark chocolate, cacao and a light fruity note. Taste has sweet chocolate and coffee with some slightly artificial vanilla notes. Bitter cacao on the finish and continues on the aftertaste. Medium plus body, quite smooth on the palate. Quite nice overall, good balance between sweet coffee and bitter cacao.
