Black Diamond Peak XV Imperial Porter pours copper brown with cherry highlights and an average, tan head. The aroma is coffee and hops. The flavor is both strong and tart. I typically enjoy porters that are a little richer and sweeter than this, but this was good. I don't know if it would pair with steak or cheese as well as, for instance, Sierra Nevada's Porter does. But it is good.
