This year, the brewers have agreed to create an Imperial or Baltic Porter. This style is characterized by big rich malt and roast character (or not in the case of Baltic) and higher alcohol content than other styles of Porter. This years style will lend itself to complex beers with rich chocolate and coffee notes, and of course, a little bit of evil. In addition, this years attendees of the Great American Beer Festival can receive a Collaborative Evil map listing the participating breweries, their booth locations, and the unique ingredient/technique used. The emphasis for the brewers and the GABF attendees is simpleits meant to be fun. If youre headed to the GABF seek us out. Well have temporary tattoos and a map of the festival floor to find all of the breweries.

Oakshire Brewings version, an Imperial Porter brewed with Black Strap Molasses and dark Brown Sugar, will be released in Oregon after Monday August 9th. Part of their Single Batch Series, Oakshires Collaborative Evil will have a short run before heading to Denver for the 2010 Great American Beer Festival.

Its dark, lightly tart fruitiness on the nose. This is soured right? Smooth & clean but with a tang. Its good. I like it a lot. Its dark cherry chocolate. Yums

maekchu (3764) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 24, 2013
Draught at Baileys Taproom in Portland (from notes). Dark malt, charred coffee, and some grass in the nose. Flavor is similar. Alcohol is very well disguised. Strong and straightforward stuff. I liked this a lot more than my drinking buddy did.

Black with a creamy tan head. Beautiful strong floral chocolate tropical fruit and citrus aroma and taste with a clean tart finish. Outstanding!

deyholla (11027) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Bottle shared by Adam, thanks! Poured a clear brown with an off-white head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma was a combination of chocolate, smooth dark grains and a bit of cookie. Flavor was smooth dark grains and smooth dark chocolate. Really nice mouthfeel.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Black color/ fleeting head. Chocolate syrup, dark roast malt, black licorice aromas. medium bodied. Earthy molasses, dark fruit, licorice, dark roast malt flavors- very good.

brokensail (16393) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 12, 2010
A: The pour is a dark brown, almost cola-like, color with a thin off-white head. S: The nose opens up with a mild roast character along with some roasted malts. Overall, its sort of watery and mildly boozy. Nothing really that great going on. T: Flavor has a fair amount of licorice, ash, and roasted malts (almost burnt). Theres a moderate sweetness to it, and the molasses does come through. A decently boozy effort, too. M: The body is light to medium with a moderate carbonation to it. D: No real desire to try this again. Both the aroma and the flavor really fall short here

JohnnyJ (5544) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Draft at the San Diego Strong Ale Fest 2010. Dark brown pour, tan head. Chocolate, roasted malt, burnt coffee, and brown sugar. Surprisingly I am not a big fan of this.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a frothy tan head that subsides to a thin cap.

Aroma: Big roast, slight herbal hops, peat and coffee..

Taste: Burnt roast, coffee, ash with a vinous finish..

Mouthfeel: Lively bubbles, medium bodied and a little creamy..

Overall: For being big, it was wonderfully dry and complex. With all the sugar in this, I am surprised I arrived at that.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Growler from Sixteen Tons consumed during Thanksgiving dinner. Poured the color of Christmas coal with a slight tan head that was gone almost before Id closed the growler. Smelled of roast malts, coffee, chocolate, molasses, light brown sugar and a mild touch of earthy hops. Tasted of cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, caramel, molasses, brown sugar. Medium to thick mouthfeel, slightly chewy. Delicious porter that I hope to drink more of someday.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2010
GABF 2010, one of my best in show beers. Best porter I had in Denver. Big roasted malt aroma with touches of coffee, chocolate, molasses. Big big mouthfeel. Flavor did not disappoint either. Layers of it. Very good
