Bottle poured into oversize wine glass.
Old log. Don't remember specifics, but I do remember being more impressed with the appearance and aroma than the actual taste. Overall, pretty solid.

Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Smells of roast, chocolate, coffee, and subtle hints of sweet smokiness. Taste is sweet, chocolate, hints of coffee. Full-bodied with a creamy texture and smooth mouth-carbonation, Armadillo Ale Works Quakertown Stout finishes with a smooth, sweet, booziness.

Bottle thanks to trade with rightcross55! Pours a deep brownish black with bubbly tan ring of head that leaves light lace. Aroma is nice on the maple, actually confess through the roast and chocolate nicely. Taste follows, amazing on the maple syrup notes, earthy, sweet, smooth. Very nice, booze well hidden, I very much enjoyed this, a little thin but very nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Moderately sweet example, roasty, a touch acrid. Has some dark chocolate and coffee aspects. A bit more acrid on the backside. Reminds me of chocolate cake without the frosting. Well, I make it sound too sweet perhaps. Roasty, mild to moderate sweetness, with a little bit of acrid bits. Moderate body and mouthfeel. Finishes seems to get a bit sweeter. Has aspects of chocolate and maple syrup at this point.   Might be a little too sweet, at least it gets sweeter as tim goes on. Tiz okay. Thanks Bill!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a thin, but well retained, tiny bubbled light beige head, with some lacing, over a dark ruby brown (SRM 24) body......nose is roasted malts, with melanoidin tones (cocoa, more dominant chocolate, light coffee), light cereal, minimal esters, minimal hops.....taste is sweet to start, with cocoa, chocolate, dominating in the roasted malts, slight coffee tones, no dried fruits, light maple syrup tones, leading to a light simple bitter finish......mouth feel, body light of medium, sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation low, finish soft with minimal acid. This is a relatively simple Imperial Stout, dominated by sweetness and the roasted malts. The hops are somewhat underrepresented, and there is little of the depth of malt complexity represented by dried fruit, umami. Also given the malt bill the body is really off. The creaminess of oats, and the thicker mouth feel of wheat are not there. All those complaints made, this is not an awful beer, and is technically well made. It is just not a particularly good Imperial Stout. Rework the hop bill, add more oats to the malts, and consider a change of yeast. Finally, aging it a red wine barrel might correct everything. Experimentation is in order. BJCP 7/3/13/3/6
