3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated 3/24/13. Portion of a 750ml bottle into a Hunahpu’s snifter. From notes.
A: Pours a dark brown color. The head is a thin white-shaded collar.
S: Chocolaty, with a bit of coffee. I also notice slight caramel and roasted qualities.
T: At first, faint chocolate gives way to a vegetal, stale coffee profile. After a couple of sips, it balances out fairly well. The finish has a bit of ’saltiness’ that I enjoy somewhat, too. Barrel influences are very subtle here.
M: Rather thin, and not really creamy, either. Still, the sweet/bitter balance is nice.
O: Ramp up the body, use better coffee; and we could really be talking about something kickass here. As it stands, it’s a pretty good imperial stout with quite a few glaring flaws.

Bottle. Pours deep black with beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee with bourbon notes. In taste mainly fine dark and bitter chocolate with nice roastiness from coffee. In aftertaste notes of vanilla. Great on the palate, the beer is really oily and creamy, full bodied. Alcohol very well hidden, finish is roasty. Not as complex as it could be but all flavours that are there are very strong and nicely mixed. Very solid brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at fire works. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Big bourbon on the nose. Lots of bourbon on the tongue along with the roasted malt. Not getting the coffee notes though the malt does suggest chocolate. Hides it's booze well. Nice overall but only solid for style.
