2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brew pub. This was the most disappointing of the beers I had there. It has little flavor up front. After awhile some heavy roasted malt shows up and leaves a bitter aftertaste on the tongue. I generally like this style a lot, but this beer didn’t do it for me.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I am drinking this beer at the Boxing Cat.It is simply a great beer, in my opinion. The body is black and strong, brown and white foam. The carbonation is regular for an imperial stout. The taste is well balanced, vanilla, roasted malt, licor of whisky, alcohol but it is overall really pleasant.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured up on tap at RBWG16 where it exhibits a nice inky black body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up burnt chocolate brownies, dark roasted malts and then chocolate bar toward the end of the draw. Nice! The taste is similar as I get dark roasted to burnt malts and then a chocolate brownie sensation. Wow, this is smooth and rich and deep. Terrific sipper.

Draft - Big roasty notes off the bat. Jet black with a decent beige head. Roasty and ticks all the boxes of the style. Solid.
