4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Probably the darkest, thickest, maltiest stout I've ever had. Really hoppy with a great aftertaste. Really heavy but really tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick and inky with large foamy tan head. Chocolate and a light wisp of alcohol on the nose. Taste- wow, incredibly rich and chewy. Roasted chocolate malts slam your taste buds. Less dominant flavors include honey, coffee, raisin, tobacco and alcohol. Giant Stout. It's easy to see why stout lovers love this ale so much. It's really good but just not my style.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours thick and rich, with aromas of dark chocolate and roasted malts. Little to no head retention. Very warming and decadent. Drinking this in July, not usually the style I go for, but I didn’t have the will power to wait for cooler weather.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells of alcohol and faint hints of chocolate and coffee. Low carbonation with a sticky syrupy mouthfeel. Lightly foamy. Taste is dominated by the alcohol, but of course also has the typical stout tastes present as well such as raisins, dark chocolate, and roasted malts. Aftertaste is long length and the same. You get immediate warmth from the alcohol and taste of alcohol that subsides over the course of about 20 seconds. Too boozy for me. Gets significantly better with age though.

Two years old. Nose is dark fruit and sweet syrup. Flavours are espresso, sweet syrup, dark fruit, bitter chocolate, maybe some leather. Bursting with Flavours very drinkable. Taste big sweet med/big bitter. Full oily body with medium carbonation and lasting bitterness. Awesome beer, no doubt about it.
