3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown with a finger and a half of beige head. The head retains for quite some time. The nose is mildly roasty. The consistency is creamy and the flavor includes mild chocolate notes. The finish is slightly astringent and includes a note of alcohol presence which is odd considering that this is a relatively low ABV imperial.

Art & Antiques in Shiner, TX. Bottle poured into pint glass. Pours caramel black with a strong khaki head that lingers. Smells of rich milk chocolate and a touch of malt. Flavor is the same - smooth and creamy. Great taste for the ABV. Would drink again.

Wonderful. Sweetness, getting some milkiness (cream?) as well. Solid, not particularly roasty stout base. Incredible flavor for the ABV.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, courtesy Narnad. Really dark brown with a thin, light brown head. Milk chocolate aroma is very pronounced, slightly roasty (reminiscent of s’mores), and a bit boozy. Flavor is a bit more heavy on the roast, which grows slightly in intensity. Finish is rather dry with notes of bittersweet cocoa and toasted pecans. There is a bit of hot alcohol in the middle, but not overly so.

Rich scent. Bite for imperial but soft enough that you wouldn’t know. Chocolate is sweet and foam is light. Very good on tap. Best when not super cold

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a thin looking dark brown with a this tan head. Little aroma, but of roasted malt and coffee there is a little. Little burnt taste at the beginning, with a bit of currant flavor, long slightly bitter finish. Too thin to really enjoy.
