4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured this beer from a large bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. It had a thick black color with an above-average sized creamy and slightly foamy tan head that had modest retention, but excellent cling and great lacing. Its aroma had a rich malt presence with strong notes of chocolate along with tones of coffee, molasses, and caramel, along with a grainy hop undertone and notes of wood and dark fruit. The beer had a somewhat sweet taste initially with flavors of chocolate, coffee, light caramel, and a good blend of dark fruit and raisin, that gave way to a bitter grainy effect with a touch of alcohol. It was a fairly wet beer, a touch creamy, with good carbonation and fizz, It was somewhat dry with an alcohol presence at the finish and a dry, but full, mouthfeel.

Bomber to snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks good; black with mocha head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells solid; malty and slightly roast. Tastes like it smells with a semi-sweet mouthfeel that’s acreage on the palate. Solid.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, roast, coffee and black licorice. Taste is bitter with some creeping sweetness on the finish. Much more light bodied then expected, with a silky smooth texture which seemed to contrast one another. Very solid and exceptionally easy to drink with the alcohol being well hidden.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
#100 imp stout. Cheers to me, and to the next one hundred.
Pour pitch black, with a nicely looking dense tan head.
Aroma of roasted malts, slight ash and smoke, slight chocolate, some piney and hoppy notes as well, along with some vanilla and slight cocao. Taste is a little sweet up front, with a semi-long, bitter and dry aftertaste. The body is rather watery, with a medium amount of carbonation.

The aroma is alcoholic with chocolate, burnt malt, molasses, toasted oak, and hops. The appearance is dark brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall nice but a little too much bitterness and smokiness for me.
