3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice example of a Imperial Stout. Very drinkable even with a 12% ABV. A distinct flavor doesnít stand out and thatís not bad thing. By that I mean there is not a chocolate, coffee or a roasted flavor that is singularly dominating. It just means it is a beer that is well rounded and crafted very well. Really balanced for an Imperial Stout.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Canals Hammonton. Pours out a nice smooth silky black with an attractive tan head. Aroma is of burnt sugar, molasses, medium roast coffee, chocolate, cola and light soy sauce. Taste is complex, a super silky smooth mouthful. Notes of chocolate, mild roast, coffee, molasses, mild notes of some bitterness, cola and a light lingering alcohol. Silky body detracts from the fact that this beer packs quite a punch.

Fuller body, creamy, light hit of alcohol heat midway through and softer carbonation. Flavor of burnt toast, dark semi-sweet chocolate, soy sauce, totobacco, light smoke. Solid beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Opaque black color. Huge tannish brown rocky head. Rich cocoa and espresso malt aroma. Flavor is rich and roasty. Notes of scorched malt, tobacco, espresso and treacle. Huge roasted malt flavor is the bomb. This is bid and bad with little subtlety. At 12% this is not to be fu#*ed with. Go get this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A just sorta-there imperial stout. Iíve had this at two separate EBFs and thought it was merely good, not great. Slightly chocolatey, slightly roasty, slightly sweet, slightly bitter. Just good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled in 12/2013. Appearance is pitch black with a quickly dissipating tan head and lacing. Aroma is huge sweet chocolate notes, a little bit of vanilla and bourbon flavor (from the booziness I imagine), and coffee, but the chocolate predominates. Huge chocolate and coffee flavors right up front. Big big dark chocolate sweetness with a bit of a pleasant burning sensation from the booziness. Notable heat here. But itís very pleasant. Nice coffee bitterness in the finish, but not overwhelming. This is really good. Very pleasant. A nice sweetness from the stout thatís balanced by the bitter finish. More carbonation than I expected in the mouthfeel and a bit less creaminess. That being said, not a weak or thin body by any means (obviously not, itís an imperial stout). Itís very good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of roasted malt with light dry coffee notes and black chocolate notes also noticeable. Taste is also a mix between some roasted malt notes with light dry coffee and some black chocolate notes. Body is quite full with nice smooth texture and ABV is well hidden. A bit short on complexities but still an enjoyable imperial stout.
