4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
2012 bottle into a pint glass. Poured with a thick, 1 finger mocha head. Head does not last very long. Aroma of chocolate, roast and a bit of alcohol. Lots of roast in the taste. Lots. Has almost a smokey flavor from all the dark malts. Alcohol is well hidden behind all the roast. Medium viscosity. Each sip clears the pallet well. Well balanced even with all the roast.

Poured from bottle to glass. Black hue with creamy brown hue. Aroma malt, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, peppercorn, ethanol. Mouthfeel is nice with a fill body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with astringent bitter following and ethanol finish. Overall this is a really nice stout.

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!

What a big beer tons of flavor. Aroma opens as it warms. Pour is dark black with a nice tan head. Lots of malts and bitter like dark chocolate. Coffee and chocolate cover cherry rule this beer.

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.
