Full Sail is based in Hood River, OR with a second location in Portland, OR. They make several different styles and have won a number of awards over the years for their various beers. Imperial Porter (7.5% ABV and 60 IBU) is now retired and a new version that is aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels is the replacement and is part of the 2012 Brewmaster Reserve Line-up.
American Porter – description - http://beeradvocate.com/beer/style/159 - Beeradvocate
Appearance – this one pours very dark brown / black and you cannot see through the glass. There is a brown two-finger head.
Aroma – One can detect coffee / espresso, chocolate and roasted malt. I detected little aroma from hops.
Taste – Essentially, like it smells with chocolate and a light coffee note to the roasted malt with a slight bitterness on the finish that is also dry.
Overall – B – Imperial Porter is not bad, but it is nothing special. The newer version has a higher ABV and I bet it improves with the barrel aging.
Description – N/A – this beer is now retired
