22oz bottle from TomZ, Thanks!. really a solid imperial porter, the vanilla is hidden to me, it finds its way out only once in a great while, whats awesome is holding this beer up to a christmas tree and seeing no light, she’s thick and dark.. well suited for fireside drinking.. not overly sweet like some ST offerings either.
Simply the best beer i have ever tasted. Heavy and sweet as expected, very smooth. They tried to limit me to 2 but i got my hands on a third. We did spend a few hours as that is a bit of alcohol in one sitting. obxdude10 (2391) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2018
Outstanding imperial porter from a 12oz bottle purchased at Center City Steaks in Spring City. The poured a pitch-black color with a big tan head that left some really beautiful lacing around the glass. There is a ton of vanilla in the nose and in the flavors, perhaps a bit too much. The vanilla notes come really close to overpowering the entire beer. I also tasted some dark chocolate and coffee, with a warming alcohol feel in the finish.

12floz bottle, no date, $2.75 single, large stem glass. A great looking dark beer as it has a good amount of head that is browner than most. The nose is dessert exhibition of chocolate and vanilla extract aromas. It can be thought of as like a vanilla cappuccino - vanilla, dark coffee (espresso-ish), and a bit creamy (the froth). I get a little too much vanilla as a flavor for liking to justify rating this beer a 4 or better. Pretty good, but dunno if I'll revisit. johancederholm (35) - - JAN 6, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2018 Flaska från SB. Doft av kaffe och vanilj samt någon kryddighet som jag inte kan sätta fingret på. Typisk porter med något lättare kropp, smak av beskt kaffe, känner ingen vanilj i smaken. Tyvärr inte imponerad.

Black beer with small head, which vanishes quite quickly but which lefts small and stable head on the edge of the glass. Delicious aroma has malts, roast, cream, coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Taste has roast, full malts, coffee, chocolate. Full body, ending is dry and bitter with coffee. Wonderful beer. Pipelori (1) - - DEC 29, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 Muy oscuro con aromas a cacao, vainilla y maltas oscuras. Sabor a chocolate con toques dulces y ligero amargor muy bien acomplejado. Cremosa y de buena carbonatación y calidez. Excelente cerveza y de etiqueta muy linda. DWestrick (858) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2017
tap. probably the best imperial porter i've had. complex, robust - pretty perfect for the style edgallow (4618) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 24, 2017
Draft pours black with a brown head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, toffee and coffee. Taste is vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Learninbeer (669) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2017
The aroma is malt, caramel, coffee. Pours a dark brown with amber hues, creamy tan head mostly lasting and excellent lacing. The taste is medium bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Very Good!
