A deep dark brown body with some ruby highlights and a large mocha colored head atop that leaves some patchy yet thick lace.Deeply roasted malt and some woody notes in the nose along with dark bitter chocolate,heavy handed hops going on here on the palate intensley roasted with big French roast coffee flavors up front followed by a big raw earthy piney hop finish.Rather dry, and really didnt get much in the way of "Holiday spices" but i liked it none the less.

I had this at Max's on Broadway in Baltimore, Maryland on 26 December 2011. This was THE beer of the night ... easily! I had the 2011 edition (Mikkeller X-mas Porter Til Fra Via (To From Via)). It was amazing - rich, hints of chocolate, malts, hops, and some spice. The booze was hidden well - the 2011 edition is a hefty 9%. I would TOTALLY have this again!

i gotta say, the slight nuance of coriander worked here, maybe because there was so much else going on. didn't know it was an imperial porter, so the jet black pour was a nice surprise. lots of spicy roasted hoppy goodness in the aroma. feel is full, but a touch too carbonated. not bad...i'm just nitpicking. flavor is huge of oats, roasted chocolate malt, various spices and hops. very nice.

Man, this is the kind of gift to give for Christmas!! If there was a case of this under the tree for me, I’d be one happy camper. The beer pours out a deep brown/black body with a nice thick khaki head. I could smell this all day night! Long notes of chocolate and roasted malt notes, molasses, anise, vanilla with a bit of ashyness. Hops seemed to be buried under the malts. My taste buds were doing the happy dance, as the beer hit the receptors. Spices, bitter dark chocolate, toffee, light alcohol and medium sweetness. Love the chocolate flavor in this beer, very pronounced.

I was given a bottle of this recently, and was informed that the beer is no longer made. It's a very dark brown beer with a huge aroma of roasted malt and dark chocolate. The flavour was dark malt and sweet chocolate syrup.

Bottle courtesy of goryshkewych: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a huge brown foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of dry roasted malt notes with some spicy notes in there as well. Taste is a mix between some dry roasted notes similar to a dry stout with some easily discernable spices mix that could have been used in a strong Belgian ale with some weird yeast attenuation. Full body with a creamy texture and some good carbonation and no alcohol was discernable. This one does not fit into one style in particular but is enjoyable nonetheless.

Pours with a black body topped by a medium thick, brown head with a good amount of lacing. It’s sweet yet sour with a bitter hoppiness and some roast. Huh? That is just a wierd combination of flavors. Medium bodied, smooth and creamy with a dry finish.

Bottle (750) from SL. The pour was pretty black, maybe some browness to it, head was tannish in color, very generous and airy in form, good Belgian-esque lacing. The aroma was chocolate, molasses, roast, spices (coriander and Christmas cake stuff). Flavor followed suit and there seemed to be a bitterness derived from a combination of the roast and spicing, keeping it from being anything sweet and sticky, yet not highly drinkable. Big airy carbonated mouthfeel combined with some acidity. Good but not great stuff.
