UPDATED: MAR 28, 2018 650ml 2016 ed bottle at home. One of the most beautiful pours I've witnessed: silky, thick very dark brown ale topped by a nicely lacing beige head. Intense caramel, butterscotch, roasted marshmallows, toffee, bourbon, praline chocolate nose and taste: sweet, boozy, lightly bitter altogether. Nicely lingering aftertaste. Firm body, low-medium carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. Another banger from Firestone Walker. pictoman (1283) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2017
Poured from 650mL bottle (2016 - No. 001). Black with tan head. Vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, light roast malt, and a hint of soy sauce and smoke. Almost a syrupy texture, alcohol mostly hidden. scanovajr (744) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - AUG 27, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2017 Pours black opaque with a creamy beige head. Aroma is coffee, bourbon, caramel. Taste is roasted malt, caramel, bourbon. Not so dense as I expected but still well balanced mjjmhays (15) - - JUL 26, 2017
To start, this is an Imperial Porter which is not part of the entry's title. Delicious and worth buying again!

Tap at Malt and Vine. Nearly black with little head. Aroma of burnt chocolate. Taste the same. Some smokiness. Medium body.

On tap at Elizabeth Station, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is very earthy upfront, with notes of feet, BO,earthy notes and wood - can’t shake the feet and BO notes. Flavour is thankfully a lot better, with lots of earthy notes, what taste like rye barrels, and a little vanilla. The nose really messes this up for me. I’m going to be a dink rater on this one and say I’m not impressed - while the taste is fairly pleasant, the aromatics intrude on the enjoyment on this.
