4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted on 3/8/14 on draft at Hunahpu’s Day 2014. Pours oily black with no head, but just a hint of brown lace. The nose is dominated by coffee with plenty of dark chocolate and dry cocoa nibs, and a touch of vanilla. The flavor is almost exactly the same with just enough sweetness to balance, but the coffee is really the star. The body is full with very light carbonation and a long coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted bitter finish.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled at Woodshop 2011. Pours a deep black color with dark brown at the rim. Beautiful nose of rich cocoa infused coffee, creamer, vanilla custard, and Nutella. Creamy, dense palate, dripping with flavors of chocolate, rich coffee, Ferrero-Rocher, and medium vanilla. This was the best Imperial Stout I’d had up to that point in time.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pitch black pour, dark brown head with reddish hues. Nose is huge gourmet coffee. Wow. That’s all I get initially--just a huge gorumet coffee bomb. Hard to tell it’s not just a cold cup of black coffee. As it warms the roasted malts come through. In the taste I get some dark chocolate and roasted malts, but mostly just huge kopi luwak coffee. Smooth big body but not quite as thick as regular Zhukov or AB Huna.
