4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured the "motor oil" black with a 1 fingure tan head. Aroma fills the nose with almost a milk chocolate aroma and very mild roasted malts. The mouth has sweet chocolate up front followed by some alcohol heat, a little too much for 10% but maybe because it lacks some complexity of flavors in my opinion. It then follows with some nice bitter chocolate which lingers on the back of the palate for a while making you want to enjoy another sip. A solid winter stout.

One of the best imperial stout for a very reasonable price. Body is full, the finish is roasted and chocolatey. Alcohol taste was minimal.

Nearly black with dark brown head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is bitter dark chocolate, alcohol (10%),some roast flavors and molasses too. Finish is dark chocolate and some sweetness character like milk chocolate. Mouth feel is similar to cream sherry. This is a very nice imperial stout, comparable to some that cost twice as much.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. Deep dark brown colour with a very thin brown head. Dark chocolate, coffee, roasted, light smoked and liquorice in the aroma. Soft to medium carbonation and medium to full body. Taste is like having a light cigar, eating dark chocolate with a coffee and a Port wine, all in the same glass. Overall, a very good beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours like ink with a thin dark tan head. Aroma is sweet chocolate and dark fruits. Heavy beer with a sweet dark fruit and chocolate taste on the tongue. This beer is way too sweet for my taste.

Too much of toasted and alcohol for me. I know it is an imperial stout, but I’ve have others and don’t feel this way.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Sour taste. Good chocolate notes but a hint of sour apple. Not a 100 point beer in my mind.

12 oz bottle. Tasted on 12/14/14. Bottle from Total Wine Lewisville, TX. Pours to a deep black color with a thin dark tan head. The aroma has roasted grains, light chocolate & licorice. The taste had very little chocolate for me & had more dark fruits & licorice. Overall good & was definitely better as it warmed up more.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2014 An outstanding RIS. Cracked open a bottle from 2012, was hot back upon release but has mellowed into an exceptional blend of chocolate and roasted notes. A little smoke caps this off. Comes together wonderfully, and lives up to the fantastic, jet black appearance from the bottle pour. Mouthfeel is suitably decadent - this is a high quality confection in a glass.

Dark black, opaque, medium brown head. Smells roasty, like bitter chocolate, malt, coffee, licorice. Heavy-makty taste, red berries, chocolate, coffee. Oily texture and velvety finish.
