4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Roasty, malty goodness. Nothing overly complex in the aroma, and not in your face either, but nice and balanced. Completely black, dark brown head, pours very thick. Taste is full of flavor, milk chocolate and hops on the frontend, maltiness in the middle and lingering hop bitterness and cocoa in the slighty sweet finish. The alcohol is fairly well masked for 10%. Heavy mouthfeel and mild-medium carbonation. Quite delicious.

2013/11/19 - Pours an opaque black colour, with a thick, frothy, tan head that reduces quickly to a lingering surface film. Aroma is toasted, smokey malts, dark fruit, bitter chocolate and vanilla. Taste is toasted malts, cocoa, coffee and dark fruits. Mouthfeel is thick and oily with low carbonation and a bitter, slightly warming finish. Nice imperial stout.

Bottle - Dark roast malts, dark fruit and some bitter chocolate. Jet black with a creamy brown head that disperses quickly. Dark roast, chocolate, coffee and some dark fruit. There is a nice bitterness that cuts through to the finish. A really nice complex RIS.

Tasted a small sample at a BeerThief gathering. Beer is black and very leggy. Nice hop aroma as well as the solid good roast, but not really much chocolate. Taste is all roast and some coffee very late. The finish is a very good dry, but with an edge to it. Another fine Imperial Stout from Bellwoods.

On tap @ BarVolo during Bellwoods tap takeover Sunsplash event. I tried to get to the sour cherries cask of this, but it was gone before I could get to it. Very hearty near black with a chunky brown head. Tarry burnt malt profile, bitter bakers chocolate, light ash, light licorice, hoppy bitter finish. Very big brew, dense.
