3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from box aroma, pours a thin looking dark brown with a minimal tan head. Aromas of chocolate, some roast and a dash of spice. Taste is mostly chocolate milkshake, powdery but thin, with just a hint of spice. Very little spice actually. Finish is semi sweet with a lingering cocoa note. Decent.

Overall a really nice impy stout, but probably not one that I’d drink on a regular basis. I found the beer way too heavy on the sweet malt and the chocolate. I was also a little disappointed that there was virtually no head on the beer whatsoever. The nose featured some really nice chocolate notes, along with some vanilla, cream and slight flowery hops. The finish was extremely sweet and contained a hint of alcohol.

Roasted coffee smell with hints of chocolate. Dark charcoal, with Carmel color in the lacing. Thick and malty--soft on the palate and not so bitter finish. Very nice.

Pours dark coffee with a creamy cappuccino smaller head. Aroma is lighter, but you get notes of faint non spicy pepper and roasted bitter chocolate malts. Flavors include a mixture blended very smoothly of vanilla, pepper (like dry flakes), and some bitter roasted malts. It is so smooth for a higher ABV.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine. Good looking dark stout with a tan head but the aroma right off the bat is burnt malts, nothing sweet and candied as anticipated. The taste is actually an ok stout with hints of spice from the chile and cinnamon, which seems to get me more with some sips than others. The malts seem really heavy like an imperial stout or robust black IPA, so I'm a little confused by the beer, having expected a sweet dessert beer. Overall just ok but I have a tough time reconciling the expectation with the actual taste.

Bomber. Deep brown with a beige head. Smells and tastes like crest toothpaste to me. The original kind. Pretty thin. Don’t think I’d buy this again.

A very tasty chocolate stout. Has just a slightly high aftertaste from the high alcohol but still good.

Bomber. Pours a a dark brown black color with no real appreciable head, but I didn’t pour it. Nose is chocolate, spicy and peppery. Taste is complex , sweet and spicy, with an initial sweet chocolate taste and followed by a peppery taste. Finishes with the myriad of sweet and spicy notes, taste lingers and the alcohol well hidden. Quaff Score 8 / 10
