Bottle. The pour is black with a full head. The aroma is full of malt. The taste is also full of malt and dark fruit. Finishes with a hint of roast, and very smooth. Good drinking stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Biscuity coffee bean angles evolve into roastiness and raisins before alcohol heat adds an edge to this tight Imperial Stout.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the darkest brown.
-Caramelized sugars surge in the second half.
-Oatmeal-like cereal flavors add depth.
-Hop resins meet up with roasted malts in the finish.
-This is a nice dessert brew from aroma to finish.

Big boozy and sweet beer but with a decent amount of roast/smoke element to it.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. Bottled on 05/2012. Jet black pour. Smells like charred grains, fusel alcohol, licorice, black chocolate, and some bourbon & vanilla too. First sip, whoa strong. Burnt grains flavor, vanilla, cocoa bean bitterness, coffee flavors, charred honey, bourbon wood. Esters of bubblegum, wood, bourbon, and odd flavor character that I can only assume is hops. Loads of wood and toasted chocolate malts. Finishes with a welcoming booziness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, a lot of chocolate malts, hints of vanilla, and some floral hops. Flavor the same, a little too sweet. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer, but not the best of its style.

Bomber shared with UncleMattie. Pours a dark brown with a tan foamy head. Aroma of chocolate burnt coffee and hints of vanilla.Taste is of sweet malts, just like the nose. A bit of chocolate and burnt coffee, light vanilla taste and bourbon and oak. Nice mix between Blaecorn and Vampire. Angry Beast definitely made a good night.
