3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. I a lot of the spice and a bit of chocolate in the nose. The flavor was totally dominated by the herbs followed be a hint of sweet stout. Maybe it will blend a bit with time.

31 aug 2014, bottle. Black with some sediment. Nose is ginger up front and moderate ginger. Med/full body and moderately fizzy. Ginger and cinnamon and slightly bitter dark chocolate. As it warms up it gets sweeter. This is decent but it's just a ginger stout.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 ml. bottled 08/08/2013. Opaque with a lasting ring and small splotches of creamy bubbles. Nose is earthy dry cocoa, vanilla, prune and fruity red wine. Flavors of dark chocolate, vanilla, raisins. Occasional touches of orange, tart apple and blackstrap molasses. Finish has some merlot and an earthy spiciness that hints at zesty ginger and white pepper. Medium-heavy body is to the sweet side, but the spices provide a nice balance with just a bit of tingle and astringency. Low-medium carbonation is smooth and pleasant.

bomber, nah, the spices are weird, the base imperial stout is great which pretty much saves it, the spices are too weird for me. Very disjointed.
