4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a deep opaque black body with a nice looking beige-tan head. Roasted coffee and malt notes. Finished a little soft, but over all quite enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black, brown outline, no head, some carbonated lace signs. The aroma is full & roasted with some sweet fruit & lots of hops. The flavor is roast, no alcohol, more like a foreign stout than a RIS, no complexity.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with brown edges, no head and webbed lacing. Mocha aromas, chocolate and roasted malts. Coffee and raisin. Flavor is pretty much the same as the nose, but a tad more bitter. Medium body, and a finish of bitter alcohol

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Black with a thin tan hea. Sweet and almost hoppy. This "imperial stout" tastes like an average American pale ale with some coffee malt added to.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught: pint! wonderful. What else is better than an imperial stout in a pint glass? An impressive midnight color, dark and opaque. Nice roasted qualities and creaminess on the palate; however, missing any fruity development or vinous qualities. Tasty bitter mocha finish. Not one at the top of the Imperial stout list, but a nice beer no less.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 Some dark red at the edges of a dark body with a tan foamy head. A pleasent roasted coffee flavor, with some residual smoke in the
finish. Barely hits imperial status. Has a dry finish, and sharp, smoky aroma.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with a creamy tan nitro head, nice roast malt aroma, and a big roast flavor, with a little touch of sweetness to offset the coffee finish. Very good, and they make a good burger too. If you get to Hood River, and you've already been to the Full Sail brewery, try the Horsefeathers Pub for lunch.
