Good. Heavy in flavor and mouthfeel. Syrupy. But, not too sweet. But, not too roasty. There are definitely better at this ABV level, but this one is indeed solid.

12 oz bowling pin bottle. Pretty cool label. Inky pour. Huge, stiff tan head. Coffee and slightly creosotic, cashew aroma. Moderately acidic, coffee, soy, sugary, low bittering outside of the roast. Sturdy, oily mouthfeel. I wouldn’t kick this out of bed for eating crackers. ABC Liquors, Betton.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black, with a thick, foamy tan head that settles to a substantial lace - dry cocoa/bakers chocolate hit the nose first, followed by some spicy notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, noticeable rye, peppery character, some notes of molasses far in the back, light hints of smoke and cloves - full carbonation, semi-soft in the mouth - some sweetness up front, but this is fairly dry for the strength - a lot of cocoa, some tobacco - some spicy, slightly bitter rye combines well with some black malt bitterness - notes of licorice/anise, warming spices - touches of smoke around the edges that taste like a product of the yeast - a few other mild, belgian-ish phenols and spiciness - finishes dry, with quite a bit of alcohol warmth - a little too much so - a fairly solid take on a belgian-style stout - it’s just a little too hot in the finish.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Big roasty aroma, dominant. Hints of bittersweet chocolate and chocolate malt. Translucent dark brown color, brown head, seems thin and watery. Roasty, harsh, metallic, astringent mess....ahhhhckk. Lingering harsh bitterness and metal, seems to have been aged on pennies. Few sips in, can not finish this.

Pours a a dark brown with a rich dark tan head. An an unassuming stout aroma. Full in the mouth. Some jagged astringency. Ripe banana, bread, smoke, and earthy notes. Belgian yeast has dominated.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is an imperial stout for those who prefer balance rather than a weight toward chocolate or toward roasted. Pitch dark, of course, with a chocolatey, mocha, crisp, dry finish. Overall, an outstanding stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The pour is a nice coffee black color with a beautiful tan head. The aroma has a strong coffee note with a fruity element to it. The taste gives you a fruity chocolate/coffee flavor with a malty finish. A little boozy but not too bad on the Imperial stout scale.
