4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle, thanks to Dunn4040. Pours black, with a small, brown head. The aroma is strong coffee and bitter chocolate, caramel, faint cherries and tobacco, cinnamon, and peat. Very sweet and malty, with a light roasted bitterness. Very heavy body, sticky, syrupy, and a little chalky. This is a quite a nice stout. Thick, sticky-sweet, and very aromatic. This bottle is about a year old, and I can imagine a few more wouldn’t hurt.

Pours black w/ absolutely no head or lacing. The aroma has some dark fruit notes & a touch of roastiness. The taste is rich & full upfront & finishes w/ just enough bite to let u know it’s an imperial. It’s medium to full bodied & pretty fantastic on the palate. Beautiful man!

12 oz bottle. Pours a jet black with lasting beige head. Aroma is massive: chocolate and coffee bitterness, roasted malts, a lactic complexity. Flavor is huge and palate coating: above plus a fruity sweetness over the roasted malt bitterness. Clean finish - outstanding.
