On tap at the grad in Davis. Pours a black color with a decent sized tan head. Nice full flavored beer. Can definitely taste the vanilla. Solid brew.

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.

This was an experience, the coffee wollups you while a present hippiness leaves the beer finishing like a beer. It’s a kick of flavors and it is definitely bold, in the end it’s palate take away slightly and it just isn’t quite all there for a 5, but it certainly is one of the better beers I’ve had in my beer tastings. beskid (71) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2017

LCI. Poured from the bottle. Very good imp porter with loads of coffee and s bit of vanilla, perfectly balanced. Nice long coffee aftertaste. Bacchus66 (207) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2017
From tap. Mmmmmm. Very nearly black, medium cream head. Smells and tastes of coffee. Nose is fresh roasted coffee beans and vanilla. Tastes dark chocolate, espresso, dark malts. Lingering bitter chocolate, coffee finish. Holds the alcohol well. Great stuff.

Optisch einwandfrei, bei 10% werde ich mal nicht über den Schaum meckern. In der Nase sehr intensiver Kaffee. Setzt sich im Trunk fort, dabei extrem gut trinkbar. Cremig. Schokolade ist auch dabei. Wenn dann nur leicht alkoholisch. Ausgezeichnet! jiseokkoo (5) - - MAY 27, 2017 does not count
Bitterness is strong and it dimishes the vanilla taste and aroma. Strong coffee flavor as well. Except these two facts great imperial porter.

aroma is very pleasant. there’s something off about the mouthfeel, it could be flatter for my tastes. Otherwise a very good beer. MavDunk (103) - - MAY 14, 2017
From the bottle. Pours cola black with thick khaki head that hangs around. Scent is cocoa, coffee, vanilla, and malts. Taste is big and similarly complex with coffee, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and more. No alcohol to speak of despite the high alcohol content. Big body and very smooth. Finishes with a mild coffee bite. A really excellent imperial porter. disfit (36) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2017
