3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle for 6 bucks. Pours jet black with a light tan head. Aroma is a typical imperial stout; chocolate, caramel malts, a little roasted malts and coffee. Taste is pretty much the same. A little sweet on the back end. Body is a little thinner than I like in an imperial stout. A good, solid imperial stout, but not amazing.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark black with a big foamy head with nearly perfect retention. Aromas slightly mellowed roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, coffee, and some burnt malt. Flavor big roasted malts, medium burnt malt, light bitter coffee, chocolate. No alcohol noticed. Medium bitterness mostly from the burnt specialty malts. Medium to light sweet. Silky feel. Reminds of a Russian stout.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big bottle. Pours quite thin and forms a big foamy tan head. Smell - yeast forward, some coffee and toned down orange from Centennial hops. Body is thin and foamy. Taste - some coffee, yeast, chocolate and toffee are all there but toned down. More of a porter than an imperial stout really. Can’t taste the alcohol at all. Nice enough.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 660ml @ cabin with Aku. Ordered from ABM. Scent of an aged coffee. Pitch dark colour with all around glass scattered foam. Easy going traditional stout. Cheek tickeling compromised palate. Not my favourite stout but definitely worth the money.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Pours a deep black color with a thick rising creamy tan head. The aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, coffee & cream, roasted malt and hops. Up front the sweet flavors of cocoa powder introduce themselves, with a hoppy bite that comes through the middle which contributes some to the alcohol bite. Finish tastes of sweet chocolate and has a roasted malt bitterness. Full-bodied and slightly sharp on the tongue.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a wonderful chocolatey stout! Nice and thick body, a slight amount of bitters which enhances the rich, chocolate aroma. This is an excellent stout which doesn’t overpower the senses. Definitely one of my favorites!
