Pours chocolate brown, opaque. Not much head. Aroma is hickory wood, coffee, chocolate. Texture is a bit oily, dry finish. Maybe a bit more carbonation than a stout should have. Medium bitter.

Pours deep brown, almost black. Little head. Strong aroma of molasses with hints of coffee. Taste is bitter coffee and smoke. Palate is bit oily and astringent, and it’s a bit overcarbonated.

Slick black pour with a 1 finger, creamy to soapy tan head, that has great retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma of big grainy roast, nutty notes, toast, caramel, a little toffee and hints of chocolate and light roast coffee. Flavor is again, big on grain roast up front, toasted oats, then some roasted nuts, a little campfire char, smoky dark chocolate, earthy grain, nice light roast coffee notes and a light minerality that crisps it up for the finish. Medium body, creamy, slightly goopy (oats, maybe?) entry, leading to a cream, slightly chalky middle, light to medium carbonation and off dry, sort of floury, chalky finish. Really tasty stuff overall, I really like the nice, grainy flavors, leading into the expanded roasty notes. Quite a nice depth for a 7.5% Impy Stout

From bottle. Pours deep black with medium tan head. Coffee vanilla dark chocolate aromas. Very creamy/smooth mouthfeel with lots of dark milky espresso flavors and not too strong of bitterness. A little lighter bodies than u expected from the looks. Almost no burn. This one is dangerously easy drinking. Great balance of flavor and truly represents an imperial stout NOT on steroids.

The signature of this brew is its smokiness. It’s a decent imperial - not overpoweringly bitter or too much of an alcohol taste despite its rather high ABV. Not my favorite style but a pretty good offering within the category.

12 pk from woodmans in Appleton. Great Winter beer, now a keeper. Heavy on the malt, coffee and cocoa. Right amount of alcohol to balance it all out!

Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Loads of coffee and chocolate all up in this beer. Very good, I’ll be buying a decent amount of this this winter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, thanks to nuplastikk. Very dark brown color. Appears mostly black in the glass. Thin light brown head, leaves good thicker lace. Nice, bigger bitter taste, minimal sweet. Big heavy roast malt, light licorice, molasses. Some coffee and slight molasses in the aftertaste. Medium to bigger body. Slightly thin, not on the same level of chewiness as my favorite imperial stouts. Lighter carbonation. Good flavor, but could use more of a full, chewier body. Seems to be missing something. Light, maybe, for an imperial stout.
