Bottle. A dark brown color with a tan head. An intense aroma of toasted malts with a touch of vanilla. The vanilla comes through more clearly with each sip. This is a very robust, flavorful and rich beer. GenDV138 (7201) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2015

draft at Moor Pat, Williamsville,NY. Black pour, creamy body. Chocolate, vanilla, roasted maltiness. some coffee/espresso. Full mouthfeel, nice porter dpgjrnhcraftbrew (81) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 22, 2015
A chocolate fudge sweetness dominates the aroma with slight tan head and spots of lacing. Chocolate covered coffee flavored marshmallows is my best way of explaining the taste. Carbonated with a creamy, smooth finish. Outstanding Imperial Porter that I will have try again! Bacterial (2986) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2015
Pour from a bomber. Dark brown. Thin tan head. Nose is burnt chocolate, roasted malt and vanilla. Mouthfeel is on the thin side, but refreshing and drinkable. Mild booze on the finish.

There's a sweet choc and vanilla aroma from this dark brown beer with an offwhite head. The sweetness from the choc mixes well with the vanilla leaving more of a vanilla bean flavor towards the end of the taste. The beer finishes out with a slight alcohol burn with coffee beans. This brew is a full bodied brew with low carb. Not a bad beer at all. Worth a try. nathan30533 (1020) - Clifton, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2014
This one really has the coffee and espresso making it. Almost smokey but I’ve learned its the espresso making it smokey. alexsdad06 (10268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2014
22 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99 from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, quite a bit of vanilla, light coffee. Smells and tastes pretty good, but a touch thin. I like this, but it doesn’t compare to their hoppy beers. RobertDale (6380) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - DEC 9, 2014
22 ounce bottle. Pours almost black with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, vanilla, and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate, and some coffee. Very good. Liked the balance. madchemist83 (272) - USA - NOV 27, 2014
Sweetness in the aroma, roasty coffee notes. Dark brown with a thick tan head that dissipates pretty fast. Little sweet vanilla like taste with roasty alcohol forward finish. A bit more vanilla please. Very smooth otherwise.
