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 doesn’t stand out and that’s 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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Heavy malts. Bittersweet, roasty, and smokey. Boozes shows in flavor more than i typically like. Study yet active carbonation. Our after taste. Not one i enjoy. If the booze was more subdued, it might have been a different review.

Big good flavour, well roasted, a tad smokey. A big beer, drinkable, yet alcohol well hidden. Black bodied with 3/8" inch brown foam retained, above average mouthfeel.

Bottle at keg no 229. Deep black color with no head. Taste is sweet and extremely malty with an interesting aftertaste. Doesn't come off as an imperial stout

Thick black pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, licorice, and anise. Roasted malt flavor with coffee, caramel, and touch of hops flavor with some booze at the end. Phenomenal lacing. Huge beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not the best label - the ol’ burning beer barrel with a bear or bull-like creature standing by. The aroma is unassuming, but the taste is pretty full and strong. It tastes sweet when cold, but gets more hoppy and savory at room temperature. Grains, sweet coffee, a sprinkle of sharp hops that turn into a tingling finish. Not the best thing in the captain’s cabinet, but still impressive.

Bottle. Black with one finger head. Huge chocolate malt with substantial bitter roast. Smoke and faint soy sauce. Hint of black licorice. Complex flavors. Just a bit boozy.
