4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle that I had purchased several years ago. Even though the "enjoy by" date was a year and half ago, age has not harmed this beer! Pours an opaque black with a tan head that dissipates rapidly leaving a moderate amount of lacing. Aroma is coffee forward. Taste follows suit with undertones of chocolate, annis and dark fruits. Overall, a very good imperial stout.

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.
