Imperial Espresso Porter

12 oz bottle from nerofiddled.
Light brown, cold coffee color with small head and ring of collar left on and around the surface of the beer.
Vapors that gather in the nose are quite surprisingly alcoholic with a touch of malt.
Tastes are quite sweet with some lovely, light coffee notes and general understatement all around. Light warmth is left on the tongue as the alcohol spreads and leaves its mark. Some touches of light, roasted beans in the finish too. Sugary aftertaste.
VERY thin in the mouth, especially considering the style. Definitely the weakest point for the beer.
Actually avery tasty beer that is quite drinkable and the light coffee notes are enjoyable. Mouthfeel is rather light so if you are looking for a “big” coffee beer this will not cut it, however I still enjoyed it.
