The Imperial Porter poured a dark brown/blackish color with a thumb width tan head. The aroma is rich, with lots of malty chocolate notes. The body is deep, with a smooth, full mouthfeel, lots of roasted malt, chocolate and some sugary notes. The finish is short and dry, complimenting the big body nicely. Overall, this is a very enjoyable beer. It is simple, yet big and one of my favorite beers of this style.
