4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a fantastic beer. You can smell the rich alcohol right from the dark brown sugar colored head. Looks beautifully dark bodied. Can't see a thing in it. Great lacing. Very rich chocolate taste with light bitterness & great roasted malty texture underneath. Fantastic palate, with perfectly blended high alcohol. Not too sweet, but just enough too keep ya comin back for more..

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2016 Pours Black, clear color, with very stable creamy light brown, beige long lasting head. Aroma; intense aroma of dark malts, which takes on espresso coffee, milk chocolate, salty licorice, supported with hop aroma, which takes on dark fruits, plums, prunes and supported with slight spiciness. Similar are flavors: intense roasted malt flavors, with notes of coffee, milk chocolate, salty licorice, with hint of mint, very well balanced with hop flavors, which takes on plums, prunes...Finish is slightly sticky, dry and roasted bitter. Body is moderate fulle, texture is very smooth (oat of course!), carbonation is medium. Strange mix of belgian yeasts and english malts, but it works! Very good belgian style imperial stout!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled in a glass that was poured from a bottle,
this impy was a dark brown – black in the glass and gave a one finger or so of light tan bubbles that receded to a ring and thin layer with a dime size center mound of bubbles, it left some nice spots and small fingers of lacing that rolled off,
the aromas were roasted malt, cola, a little chocolate and molasses, faint coffee, very faint dark fruit notes, a bit of licorice and some roasted malt (almost burnt)/smoke in the background,
it had flavors of roasted malt, some coffee and a little dark chocolate, some dark hard candy and molasses, there was a bit of licorice, tree bark and earth notes in the background,
the finish had roasted malt bitterness with a little burnt malt astringency and some hop bitterness(?), the roasted malt bitterness hangs on, roasted malt and coffee like flavor follows,
the mouth feel was almost full, it coated the tongue and was creamy, and it had average carbonation
it was a roasted malt impy, the nose was weak at first but grew a bit stronger as it warmed up, the flavor was roasted malt with some coffee and chocolate,
it was a pretty good imperial stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice black. Coffee/chocolate and little tobacco aroma. Flavor is awesome, rich and smooth, like roasted espresso loaded with dark bitter chocolate and kinda sweet. The alcohol is well hidden among the massive flavors.
