4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2013 Pours dark as night with a two and a half finger dark, creamy mocha colored head. The head is surprising for the style and alcohol content. Leaves some thick lacing. Smells of dark chocolate, espresso, roasted malts, some peat, fig, plum, some spiciness from the belgian yeast and hops, molasses. Tastes very much like it smells. At the start you get an intense roastiness. Roasted chocolate, espresso, some peat and ash characters. Then in the middle you get a lot more sweet qualities. Get the dark fruits like sweet plum and fig, as well as some milk chocolate and molasses. The finish is more roasted flavors, some tobacco, plum, some tart qualities, a lot more peat, stays sweet too. Perhaps a tiny bit of alcohol on the finish, but goes well with the intense roasted qualities. Creamy and sticky mouthfeel throughout. Pretty full body. Gets more complex as it warms. This is a terrific, complex imperial stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice dark black/brown color with a aroma of Belgian yeast and faint roasted malt. Body is a little thin than anticipated, but works nicely with all that is going on. Not the best imperial stout I've had, but solid.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Rich, roasted malt with Belgian yeast, dark fruit and chocolate malt notes. Beautiful black pour with a thin light brown head with excellent retention and lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt with a bit of spicy Belgian yeastiness to go along with a silky smooth mouthfeel and full body. Finishes nice and smooth with chocolate and a little bit of dark fruit to round it out nicely. Excellent stout.
