3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small bottle pours dark brown black with a half finger head. Nose is earthy dark fruit, grape, blackberry, dirt, ash, light dusty cocoa. Taste is on the side of dark fruits with ashy licorice, grape, dark berry, soil, some round bitter dark chocolate, mild heat and spice. Finish is round, fruity, grape, almost has a belgian-stout like character? Not much roastiness. Not a lot of pepper heat or spice in the finish. Good but wasn’t as cohesive or as I hoped, a bit soft around the edges. Still enjoyed it.

Picked this up at LP Binny’s. Pitch black 1 finger bubbly espresso head. Very faint milk chocolate and coffee latte and vanilla. Really nice mouthfeel. Creamy and silky smooth. a lot of charcoal and peat but a chocolate overtone. Nice finish with lingering roasts.

Tan foam, black liquid, the foam shrinks fast with little lacing left behind.
I get roasted malt, coffee, chocolate of the dark kind, licorice, and a fruity/boozy aroma reminiscent of something which was barell aged.
I get chocolate and roasted malt out of the gate, hints of coffee, definite licorice...some booze.
I would call it medium bodied with lightish carbonation.
A very good tasting Imperial Stout that however, drinks a lot stronger than what the abv is. Still, I cannot give it a thumbs down by any means.
