4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a ptich black, thick, with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a suttle hops. Fresh is a bit hot, which tends to mellow over time and become dangerously smooth. Definitely a wonderful beer that is readily available (when in season) and well priced. Buy and age this beer every year. This truly gets better every year.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pleasant aromas of coffee, dark malt roast, toffee, espresso, dark earthiness and a slight liquid yeast scent. Appearance is black with a very thin brown foam. Taste is very thick with an extremely heavy black malt characteristic upfront followed by notes of thick chocolate syrup, toffee, coffee roast, roasted malts, burnt caramel, espresso, dry earthy malts and dark wort. Finishes moderately boozy with more roasted malts and coffee roast. Overall, this is a really really nice Imperial Stout with a huge body and complex flavors. A+ rating.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Opaque pitch black with a smallish brown head and very nice viscous lace. Wonderful bittersweet chocolate and roasted coffee aromas with rich dark fruit and molasses. Chocolate and coffee stand out in the flavor profile, with subtle contributions from molasses, figs, chicory, booze and smokiness. Beyond full bodied, creamy silky smooth mouthfeel, minimal carbonation, and a decadently lush rich finish.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a 12 oz bottle with date 08/22/14. Pours a thick, black color, with just the slightest deep brown highlights on the edges, and a dark brown, thin head, the darkest head Iíve seen to this point. Smells just chocolately, kind of roasted chocolate granola, just a little alcohol there. Taste is incredible. So chocolately, roasty, but that oatmeal is still there. I donít believe they use oats in this, but Iím getting oats. And the mouthfeel is incredible. So luscious, full, smooth. I was blown away the first time I had this. One of the best standard imperial stouts available.
