Seriously. It doesnít get much better than this. This imperial porter is smooth, tasty and balanced like Philippe Petit. I would bath in this beer if I could. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Draft @ DeMolen. Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and vanilla. Flavor is rich chocolate, coffee and dark malt, faint alcohol. Medium to full body and very smooth. Great beer, rich and smooth. teddybeer (3735) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 21, 2013

2013 - 06 - 19 330ml bottle. black colour. medium, fading, tan head. strong coffee and dark chocolate in aroma, alcohol present. medium bitter taste. greenclansman (906) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - JUN 17, 2013
Black thin body, with almost no foam (I was expecting more on the appearance). Aromas of vanilla, but quickly fades away and just some alcohol stays there. Taste: chocolate, dark sugar, some roasted malts. The best thing about this beer is the aftertaste Its long and bitter-sweet. If it wasnít for the aftertaste, my grade would have been less, but it does end up really nice. It gives you a great overall feeling.

11.2 ounce bottle, stamp on back label says 05/04/12. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like dark fruit, chocolate, licorice, bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Taste is similar to the aroma, but thereís also some milk chocolate and a bit of an earthy/herbal flavor noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, itís a bit creamy and slick, and has a good amount of carbonation. I think itís a good brew, but also pricey at $8.99 a bottle. With that being said, itís definitely worth trying. travita (4988) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle. The look is dark, black in color, with a tan colored head. The smell is roasty, hops, malts, coffee, chocolate, strong, sauce, and leather. The taste is malts, sweet, hops, chocolate, and roast. jkwalking05 (4731) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Black in color with a good sized beige head. Aroma is of vanilla, brown sugar, molasses, heavy caramel, and chocolate. Taste is of chocolate, molasses, vanilla. Silky smooth mouthfeel. maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle from City Beverage Co Shoreditch. Pours very dark brown with light only coming through on the very edges. A small light tan head is produced which quickly disappears to a small ring around the top. Nose is quite subdued. As it warms it opens up a fair bit. Reminds me of chocolate covered sultanas. Heavy dark fruits with sharp vanilla, chocolate, liquorice as it warms. Some odd black cherry tones which work nicely. Taste showcases the dark fruits, coats the palate in milk chocolate. Some heavy vanilla gives it a sharp bitter sweet note on the finish. Slightly dry. Carbonation is a little spritzy but helps it flow. 11% is hid very well. Good stuff without being spectacular conway (2210) - - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Nose is chocolate and dark fruit. Taste is dominated by chocolate, but also has some sweet bourbon like notes but finishes with some smoke/char notes and some hop bitterness. Palate is thick and creamy. This is one of the best porters I've had in a while. Complex and delicious.
