3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Belmont Party.
Poured a clear dark brown color with a large frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, dark fruit and alcohol aroma. Heavy bittersweet roasted malty flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation.
This is a very good beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black/brown with a small and loose head and a low carbonation. The aroma has notes of sweet licorice, coffee and hints of smoke. The flavour has notes of sweet licorice, light smoke, coffee and a light bitterness, that develops citrus notes during the long finish. This nice beer has a good and full body!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malzig, wenig herb, die Aromen scheinen nicht wirklich stark präsent zu sein, halbherzig. Mittelwürzig, zum Ende aromatischer werdend. Auch die zum Ende hin im Vordergrund stehende Malzigkeit ist weniger stark als erwartet, könnte würziger/kräftiger sein.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown in color, nearly black. Dark fruit notes along with a decent roastiness. A bit on the sweet side with some brown sugar and toffee. Not too much in the way of chocolate. Hints of licorice along with dark fruit, roast, and dark chocolate. Pretty straightforward imperial stout profile to this one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 3rd LCRBM. A fast rating, because the end of the session was near. Somewhat smoked aromas and flavors detected through the roasted malt. Good stout, although I preferred the aroma to the flavor.
Bottle @ home. 29.12.09. Deep dark brown color. Raisin, dried fruit and oak in the aroma. Full bodied, low on carbon. Oaky tarry flavor. Hints of peaty smoke. Dried fruit and raisin. Fairly well balanced mix of peaty tarriness and dried fruit. Could use more carbon, though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home in London. Thanks Paul. Pours black with reddish hints and a creamy, tan head. Has some dry and roasty malts in the aroma, with hints of chocolate. Medium sweet flavor, some mossy earth, moderate roast, light raw cocoa. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Roasty finish, more moss and earth, light burnt sugar. Fairly dynamic. Good stuff.
Earlier Rating: 1/22/2011 Total Score: 4.1
Bottle shared at Whole Foods with Lyoli. Oily, black pour with a thick, beige head. Tons of chocolate, roasty malts on the nose. Great flavor, impeccably balanced, lots of mocha, smokey alcohol, sugary charcoal. Full bodied, warming with smooth carbonation. Very mild burn on the finish, lots of sweetness and medium length roasted malt linger. Great beer, incredibly drinkable.
