3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a snifter. Dark brown, almost black, opaque with a thin tan head.
Muted roasted malt on the nose.
Milky taste throughout. Vanilla all over. Light coffee notes. Sweeter than I personally like, but no downgrade for that.
Silky smooth body and low carbonation make for a wonderful feeling.
Better than average but not quite up to great.
22oz bottle, thanks to Jay A. for sharing! Kind of clear, very dark brown color, slightly reddish through the clear parts. Thin tan, light brown head. Dots and bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation, kind of crisp, Jay says this is probably a couple years old. Some dark fruit, mild oxidization in the flavor. Good kind of berry, coffee aroma, some cookie. Good moderate roast, moderate sweet, moderate bitter, more dry finish. Pretty tasty coffee imperial porter. Easy-drinking for the ABV. Great balance. Nice chewiness. slowrunner77 (12581) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 30, 2014
"sweet chocolate and large amounts of coffee, coffee, coffee. not subtle in flavor or aroma, but not the slightest hint of any alcohol either. well done if you’re a java fan." GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - FEB 26, 2014

Bottle from stevencon! Black pour with a small tan head. All coffee is lost in this one and melded into bitter dark malts, chocolate with a light ashiness. Flavor is pretty similar with a nice dried out body and bitterness. Aged pretty nicely in my opinion. jbruner (5121) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle shared thanks to stevencon! Pours a translucent brownish black with filmy tan head that leaves nice rings. Aroma is sweet and dark chocolate, a nice coffee undertone, and that familiar porter yeast soy. Taste is vanilla, chocolate, then coffee, a slightly bitter finish and thin mouth. Solid stuff for the style.
