Sampled on 10/11/2012 at GABF. This Imperial Porter pours a medium black color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee and sweet. A medium to full bodied Imperial Porter. The malts are chocolate and coffee and sweet. The hops are earthy. Decent carbonation. Nice roasty malts with a very smooth finish. There is also a touch of vanilla at the finish. Very nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. smith4498 (3674) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Pours dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of chocolate and roasted malts. Bittersweet chocolate and dark fruit flavors with some roasted malts, and hints of licorice. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. PorterPounder (8286) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop (my annual obligatory visit to kick the tires) - 22 oz bombers. Pours a jet black with a thin but stick khaki colored head. Heavy aroma with some strong black earth accents, a hint of unsweetened dark chocolate. Flavor is bold, nice licorice accents, some hints of espresso, back end of unsweetened bitter dark chocolate. NIce thick viscous mouthfeel. Pleasantly surprised....especially considering where I bought it...things tend to "age" here. jhamp9 (1964) - Corinth, Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Pours near black with a creamy khaki head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, molasses, and a bit of coffee. Taste is sweet chocolate, caramel, a little smoke, and just a bit of bitterness at the end. Coffee aftertaste. Silky texture with faint alcohol warming on the way down. Pretty good.

I had this on tap at the brewery. A very good porter. Smooth and easy drinking. Good stuff makyo (52) - Alabama, USA - APR 28, 2012
My uncultured mouth thinks this is pretty good except it has a really dry boring cocoa aftertaste which it seems to me so many chocolatey beers have but then turn out to just be shallowly cocoa. But that isn't to say you shouldn't have some. This is nice in every other way.

On tap at Big Texas Beer Fest. Aroma of roasted and toasted dark malts. Perfect pour, dark brown, almost black, with a monster tan head, and great lacing. U salivating? Cus I am lol. Anyways, in your face taste of coffee, caramel, cereal, nutty malts. Overall, great brew Camons (13315) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2012

At Avery’s 2012 Strong Ale Fest. black with a light khaki head. Great aroma of dark chocolate malt, slight smokiness, almost has an aroma like English sausage. Taste was rich and sweet with dark chocolaty malt, some pale grain, gentle hop bitterness, and a mild touch of mocha java. Neat, but something just isn’t doing it for me.
