"5Beans" Porter

Category: Imperial Porter

Date Tasted:
Country: USA
Alcohol: 10%
Nearly opaque brown color. Interesting aromas and flavors of menthol mint lozenge and chocolate espresso beans with a round, lively, finely carbonated, dryish medium-to-full body and a warming, compelling, medium-long finish that exhibits impressions of sarsaparilla, gingerbread, and pepper finish. A fun, snappy, minty coffee porter.

Imperial Porter

Beer Glass Snifter Dark Brown.jpg
Serve in a Snifter
Imperial porters are dark brown to black in color and range in alcohol from 7-11%. Fruity esters should be evident but not overwhelming, and should be balanced with malt sweetness and low-to-medium hop bitterness. Roasted malt provides a majority of the flavor for this style, which has been popularized by American craft brewers in the last 30 years. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Full Sail Imperial Porter, Southampton Imperial Porter and Flying Dog Gonzo Imperial Porter.
