4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very nice imperial. Dark brown pour, frothy tan head. Palate more like storm king - on the regular stout end, but flavor is imperial. Roasted coffee and dark chocolate notes. Decent finish. Very drinkable 10% alcohol well hidden.

Lingering bitter chocolate taste. The alcohol is hidden, but definitely warming. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Body is medium and carbonated. Finish is very bitter and dry. Itís a sipper, but a really good one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Impenetrably black with a rocky covering of mocha coloured head that seems to be reluctantly subsiding in my glass. There are the traditional stout aromas of coffee, molasses and dusty dark chocolate, but this carries with these an aroma of maple leaves and mellow green hoppiness. In fact, the flavour offers up green spruce, oranges and orange lobes, nectarine and even kiwifruit. The body is medium and mostly disguises the heavy hitting alcohol. It is an iron fist in a velvet glove, but there are hints, because the glove wearer looks like Mike Tyson and is sniggering before walloping you in the face. The finish is juicy but also offers licorice, molasses and sweet coffee. Youíre a brute, but I love you.
