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 (10436) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2015
