3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16th December 2009
Opaque black beer. Frothy short lived chocolate coloured head. Subtle chocolate malt nose. Airy and semi soft palate, semi dry. Licorice dark malt with a blackcurrant undertone. Bitter dark chocolate. Some spice towards the dry finish, a trace of coffee and a little hop. Decent without ever reaching that sumptuous feel of the best RIS.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce. Big black beer with very thin head. Little carbonation. Flavor is bourbon, coconut. Tasty, but body slightly thin. Lacks fullness of a big imperial stout. Bourbon drives most of the flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown/black with a thin tan head...lively with decent lacing. Aroma is very roasty...somewhat burnt..with a hint of sweet coffee and a mild note of dark fruit. Flavor has coffee, caramel, a bit of chocolate...very roasty...burnt toffee or molasses. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky and the finish is warming and lingers with a roasty sweetness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! First snow here in Rhode Island, so Iím ready for something thick, oily and viscous. I didnít know what to expect, even though Iíve had the super-oaky barrel-aged versions. This was intensely delicious! A balanced, rich array of complex toasty, roasted, charred, and brown flavors. Lots of near-vinous fruit-like characters combined with a fantastic, silk and velvet tongue. Extremely sippable. A great, balanced and intensely flavorful stout!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle thanks to northernbrews, pours black with a huge tan head that lingered forever, nice lacing, aroma is of molasses, caramel, chocolate and booze, the flavor is WAY too sweet for me, huge sweetness on the front end with molasses with a finish of booze, kind of reminded me of drinking port, which I enjoy just not in beer. Not my cup of tea here.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: lots of mollasses, cherries, brown sugar.
Appearance: Black pour with no head.
Flavors: Mollasses, sweet caramel. The alcohol is very present too.
Palate: Very heavy with no carbonation.
Overall: Not very good. The aroma looked promising but the carbonation killed this one. Drinking it after the BB Dark apparition didnít help either I guess ;)
