Dark as the sea bottom producing a sizable head. Strong aromas of coffee and toasted vanilla beans. Full body with excellent carbonation. Copious amounts of roasted coffee and cocoa drowned the senses while a neon vanilla flashes life into a lifeless Davey Jones. This is a meal to be rationed sparingly. I hold my chalice high in honor of those who were victorious at sea. Arrhh! Trumpola! Getbetter (1033) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - MAR 7, 2010

On tap at Barley and Hops Great full body. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon and roast chocolate. Smooth and easy to drink Fatalstrike (130) - Cerritos, California, USA - DEC 3, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2012 Simply one of the best out there. As expected the nose is dominated by fresh roasted coffee, a dash of herb-like woodiness and the subtle presence of vanilla. Pours black with some brown hues if held to the light. Off-white foam bordering on a light tan. Taste matches the aromas. Up front there is a lively dose of roasted coffee with a dash of chocolate. The coffee really livens up your palate. The finish is full of dark chocolates and earthy hops which balance this beer nicely. Feels like a porter should on the palate. Full bodied but not syrupy, nice carbonation. Get your hands on this, it is amazing. One of my favorite beers. dirtydrew (1) - Santee, California, USA - JAN 17, 2012 does not count
This is the best imperial Porter I’ve tasted. Its big, bold, sweet, and marries the flavors of coffee and vanilla very well. I cant say enough good things about this beer. My only complaint is that all you can tase after this beer is sweet vanilla and coffee.

Comes out of the bottle a rich sable just a skeezix above black with a thick and fine-bubbled tan head. Rich, smoky aroma has notes of sweet chocolate, fine coffee, vanilla and caramel and just a hint of molasses. Mouth-filling flavor delights the palate with roast malt, chocolate, nutty, vanilla, coffee and caramel tones with more than a hint of bitter, woody hops. Each sip seems to be subtly different. It’s a little like drinking cold quality coffee that has a kick like an angry mule. Smooth, rich texture has a firm tingle that persists; finish is smoky, hoppy and a little chocolate-sweet. I haven’t given out a perfect score in some time. Love the bottle - I’ll keep it and use it as a Halloween decoration. (Yes, I use beer bottles for Halloween deco!)

I am hesitant to give a beer a higher rating then on my favorites but that is exactely what I have done. This is just like drinking a chocolate vanilla frappuccino made out of awesome beer. Unbelievable a great porter all the way around. Hope I can get more of it julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Poured from a 22. Aroma has a strong but pleasant coffee aroma with hints of vanilla. Flavor has a strong but not overpowering coffee taste to it. It is sweet and creamy, almost like a coffee ice cream. After taste is not bitter at all. Very pleasant and well balanced. Broncowaldon (129) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 23, 2015
