COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its a job. And a hazardous one at that. Benefits, you ask. I hardly think so. From the depths of the earth leap flames of destruction. When time is of the essence, the Hellfighter boldly steps in the line of danger. Whether or not hes insane is not important now. Its with intensity and aggression that the Hellfighter taunts the blaze of almost certain doom. Our Imperial Porter is much the same. At 9.5% ABV and black as oil, Hellfighter Imperial Porter, with roasted coffee and chocolate malt characteristics, finishes what it started. This explosion of flavors will extinguish even a Texas-sized penchant for boldness. Intense and maybe a little insane, drink carefully but drink often. Blaze on!

Beerenberger (1602) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Aroma of chocolate with some roasted malt notes. An inky-brownish-black pour with a robust tan head and abuntent lacing. Chocolate and roasted malts flavors initially, with coffee bitterness following. The taste, while providing a slightly sweet presence, is overall bitter and very pleasing. Medium-full body and medium carbonation. Smooth round mouthfeel. Overall, full bodied taste that just keeps giving. Well done, Karbach! Will drink again.

Tap at the brewery. Pours a beautiful dark brown, dark khaki head that sticks, very lovely. Aroma is roasted nuts, cocoa, roasted coffee, just great. Thick and creamy, this porter has high specific gravity. Taste is strong roasted malts and an underlying hop presence. Loved this beer.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2014 Dark brown, reddish hues, nearly black. Nose is sweet and malty, darkly roasted but not overbearing. Pleasant, bright, sweet and roasty flavor with roasted characteristics that last.

TheHOFF43 (2046) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle from AJ! Very misleading label but a nice beer. Pours dark brown, lots of roasted malt and nut aromas. Solid palate gives way to roast flavors and chocolate

BVery (9943) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Bomber - thanks AJ! Brown pour with red highlights. Dark fruit and roasty notes in the aroma. Smooth medium dense palate. Sweet taste. Excellent!

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle:   Deep dark brown, cola hued, thin to moderate sudsy beige head, spotty lacing.   Faint smoke and roasted malts on the nose.   Roasted malt start, slightly acrid, a little smoke and campfire, minor, with some apple and pear skin.   Also seems a little ashy.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   One thing it seems this one needs is more sweetness.   Moderate bitterness, roasty, but needs more sweetness.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2013
22 oz bottle. Dark brown, a casual pour kicks up a big tan head. Nose is chocolate, coffee, plum and cola. Packed full of flavor but a bit unbalanced on the bitter side. Slick and creamy with soft foamy carb. Taste is espresso, burnt sugar, can sugar and prune.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - SEP 9, 2013
651mL thanks to djd07. Muddy, deep brown pour with higher carbonation. Reverse cascade. Sheets of complete lacing. Nose is barleywine like with toffee, peanut fudge, maple, but also quite hoppy. Taste is thicker brown sugar, pine, earth, dark fruits. Similar to a black barleywine. Omnipresent hoppy balance is excellent. Dense, near sticky body. Interesting beer, Id almost call it black barleywine instead of imperial porter

ozarkspops (368) - - SEP 4, 2013
Opaque black pour with thick mocha head. Aroma of dark fruit, coffee, chocolate, roast. Quite a bit of booze too. Flavor is very bold. Opening still has a lot of raisin/plum flavor. Leads into chocolate and coffee flavor. Finishes pretty clean and sweet. ---Rated via iPhone
