4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shared 16.9 oz. bottle. Pours brown-black with a dark tan head. Nose is roasted malt, chocolate, and licorice with coffee notes. Flavor is similar to the nose and quite rich. There is a good amount of hops bitterness, but it doesn’t clash with roasted/chocolate/coffee flavors and adds a nice extra dimension. Medium-bodied. Could probably be classified as a stout. Excellent.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: chocolatey and rich; Appearance: pitch black with tan head that dissipates quickly; Taste: also very rich and chocolatey with underlying bitterness and hops; extremely complex and delicious; Palate: heavy body with long, simultaneously sweet and bitter finish; Overall: possibly my favorite imperial stout yet, though perhaps just a teench too sweet; would definitely buy again.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Erzbierschof Zurich. Probably the most chocolate-y impstout I ever had, from start to finish having this very dark bitter cocoa aroma. Some sweetness on the tongue, but not on the palate. Lingering lasting finish, but not a sweet one either. Wow.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bomber from Liquor Max in Loveland. Black pour with a brown head leaving a lot of lace. Aroma has baker’s chocolate, caramel, and some light grain. Taste is of bittersweet chocolate, caramel, light molasses and a bit of espresso. Fairly smooth although not ideally so. Medium to full bodied with little alcohol presence. Finishes chocolatey bitter trumping the sweet side of bittersweet. Solid if not everything it could be. 14.3
