A very strong and good beer. For so much % not that harsh alcohol taste. Would go great with a icer cream or certain cheeses. A great roasty malt.

This is a excellent 10% stout to go with chocolate. Almost a sweet stout in taste but twice the alcohol. Bite of chocolate, sip of beer, repeat. Yum!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 fl oz bottle. Pours a virtual opaque black, small thick mocha head, and an oily look. Aromas of dark chocolate, black liquorice, and alcohol. Black liquorice was dominant, some caramel sweetness and warming alcohol throughout. Oily texture, low carbonation, and a long alcohol finish. Not a very subtle or complex beverage and this was with some aging. Iím going against the beer geek grain on this one.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Meritorious. Aroma is of dark roasted malts with dark chocolate. Taste is uniform with chocolate, brown sugar, faint burnt bits with a smooth finish that only stings a little. Overall, itís pretty much everything youíd want in an imperial stout without pushing any boundaries.
