3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black carol stout with a nice large foamy brown color head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with some black chocolates notes and light dry notes are quite enticing. Taste is also a very solid mxi between some dry roasted malt with light smooth black chocolates with alight dry hoppy finish. Body is full with somewhat of a creamy texture with no apparent alcohol. Solid interpretation of the style but I still prefer some of the other imperial stout brewed by the same brewer.

Bottle shared with Zach and Brooke at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Poured into small snifters. Jet black, opaque pour with an off-white thick head. Aroma of chocolate, cocoa nibs, hint of vanilla, earth peat, and prunes. The taste was chocolate, cocoa, roasted malts, prunes, figs, vanilla and earth. Not overly thick but a nice full body. Mild carbonation. Solid chocolaty finish and ended with cocoa. Nice imp stout. I feel like a sinner.
