Overall Impression

American-style imperial porters are black in color. No roast barley or strong burnt/astringent black malt character

should be perceived. Medium malt, caramel and cocoa-like sweetness. Hop bitterness is perceived at a medium-low

to medium level. Hop flavor and aroma may vary from being low to medium-high. This is a full bodied beer.

Ale-like fruity esters should be evident but not overpowering and compliment hop character and malt derived sweetness.
