3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle from Highland Beverage- Hiram, GA -----> tulip. Pours deep black with small, disappearing khaki head. Aroma is slight coffee, dark ripe fruit, and red wine. Taste is heavy Belgian yeast, sweet fig, and mild roasted coffee. Palate is nice and thick and smooth. This one comes off more on the Belgian side than the stout side, but itís still a great beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
this beer pours black with a light brown large head. This beer tastes of sour dark fruits, sour raisens,dark malts and lots of spices, the alcohol taste is over bearing and it has a bitter after taste. Not my favorite

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Coffee, chocolate, leather, dried fruits and licorice in the aroma. Almost black with a tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a interesting, complex beer with a good rich flavour.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this many times, but Eric brought to our tasting today and I realized Iíve never rated it before. Easily one of the best impy stouts to come into Fort Wayne within the last few years. A bit on the dry side with a nice hopped precense. I prefer mine soppy sweet, but style wise itís spot on.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours black with a massive tan head. Slowly fades away to a 1/2" cap. Nose is roasty malts, figs, raisins, caramel, very rich aromas. A bit lighter smell than a lot stouts Iíve tried. Taste is rich, similar to a Trappist quad, but with a slight bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium mouthfeel, medium/heavy carbonation, very drinkable!

Thanks theTomg. This one was simple but good. A bit thinner than would would expect by looking at it. Simply sweet throughout. Delicious.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at the Texas Craft Brew fest, my score is based off of some incoherent notes and a 2 oz sample.
This one did stand out for sure. A rich graininess with malt, Chocolate and Espresso. A highlight of the fest.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black pour with creamy brown head. Espresso and bitter chocolate on the nose. Dry roasted qualities, exceptionally smooth with little evidence of sweet higher alcs. Finish is remarkably clean, with chocolate covered coffee beans. Thick, but not viscous or cloying.
