COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crafted for the ones that are free to enjoy their Porter all year round. This rich, Imperial Porter combines the perfect blend of LaTerza espresso, vanilla and innovation into a big, rich, chocolate, espresso infused brownie of a beer that is as innovative as its namesake. Rivertown was asked to craft a beer for a community festival in 2011 which celebrated the 145th Birthday of the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge linking Cincinnati, OH and Covington, KY. This Imperial Porter is inventive, unique, well balanced, strong, and has been created to be as timeless and remarkable as the Roebling Bridge, the man who dreamed big and the community that brought that dream to life.

heavy aroma of coffee, roasted malt, and some spices. Ebony in color, super thin white head. Sweet up front....very sweet. Rich chocolate, some notes of vanilla, and some cream soda. Bitterness is dry and coffee-like. Watery mouth feel, not much carbonation. Average.

Sampled at catch 22 bottle share! Pours a deep brownish black with thin tan head. Aroma and taste of sweet vanilla and deep roast coffee, a hint of earthy soy. Clean and easy for abv, but a bit oxidized.

This imperial porter has great taste and packs a punch at 7+ abv the color is very dark and has little head. The coffee aroma is present and the taste of the coffee malt is great. Overall I like this beer and would recommend it to anyone

Aroma of smoked malt and espresso. Pours a dark brown with a short lasting tan head. A delicious taste of chocolate, malt and a hint of coffee. Creamy feel with a mildly bitter chocolate finish.

It’s been a long time since we had this, but I have to add to the system. We gave 3.5 so it was above average and liked the chocolate and slight vanilla. It was a little coffee but not much, and almost a bitter nut taste. Tap

Wow all I can say is this one is incredibly flat. Some chocolate flavor.Almost feels like someone left this one on the counter overnight and I’m drinking it the next morning.

Pours dark brown with an off white head. Lots of vanilla, cinnamon, and toffee in the nose. Lots of vanilla flavor...almost entirely vanilla...surprised it isn’t better balanced with the coffee...or the uhhh, porter. Medium mouthfeel with that vanilla astringent aftertaste. An alright beer...the base beer isn’t good enough to hold up to the vanilla...and im not sure what makes this "imperial" at under 8%.
