3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at BJís Dublin Ohio, US. Very dark brown almost black with a tanned head. Nice aroma of coffee, roasted malt and some sweet hints of something which I cannot define. In the flavour it became obvious that the sweetness I discovered in the nose is sweet dried fruits and I suspect it also to come from the yeast. It is a stout but has relations with a barley wine with a bitter twist. Special beer Indeed

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap in Daytona Beach FL.
Pours essentially black and opaque with an excellent head. Ruby highlights at the edges when in bright light. The head is exceptionally creamy and durable.
The aroma has an unwanted but not very unusual sour note. Partially hidden alcohol.
In contrast, the flavor has negligible sourness and obvious alcohol. Its moderately bitter. Some faint coffee and chocolate.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at Richmond location. Should note that they donít brew here. Pours black, decent tan head. Aroma is a big shot of chocolate and espresso. Flavor matches. Really rather enjoyable, a very solid imperial stout, with a focus on malt components. Slight pepsin. Nice stuff.
