Enjoyed at Stubby's on tap in Milwaukee. Smell is of bourbon and mild chocolate. The taste is also bourbon and chocolate with come coffee and caramel. It has a medium palate and a mild dryness on the finish. It is a big beer that manages to be very easy drinking.

Sample during the 10th Annual Day Before Labor Day Party on 09/06/2015. Pours jet black with a medium foamy light beige head that diminishes steadily to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and dark fruit. Full-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, dark fruit and a touch of anise. The finish is roasty with a dark chocolate and malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Bottle shared with alexsdad06. Pours clear dark brown color with a moderate frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted dark chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a thick smooth texture. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration.

330 ml bottle shared by alexsdad06 - thanks again, Brad! Got cute with the name here; yeah, can’t use the original. Pours a deep opaque brown, nearly black, with a small, lasting beige head. Nice to look at. It has some black olive notes in there, with tobacco, dark chocolate, roasted malts, light soy, and some fudge sweetness. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a rich, coating mouthfeel. Dry finish. Good imperial porter. alexsdad06 (10580) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2015
