3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft to taster at the Eccentric Cafe. Abv is listed as 8.1%. looks solid; a little transparent for an imperial stout though. Cola with beige lacing. Smells of dark malt and chocolate. Tastes like it smells, only better, with notes of hops, vanilla, and honey. Good on the palate. Enjoyable.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Like smelling a handful of cocoa nibs. Very smooth and chocolatey. Itís like drinking chocolate ice cream. Seems a bit more stout than imperial but if they bottle this I guarantee Iíll have more than one of these in the house. Very well done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I didnít get a chance to write down the description at the eccentric cafe. Oh well. Black pour with purple hue. What little offwhite head was there disappeared quickly. Chocolate ice cream aroma. Taste had just the right amount of sweet. Some bitterness thatís kind of pine-like. Chocolate syrup and bitter dark chocolate finish. Oily mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Had a clean finish. Overall a dangerously smooth and easy to drink imperial stout.
