4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bomber. Tasted on 10/30/14. Beer from Total Wine Dallas,TX. Pours to a jet black color with a dark tan medium head. The aroma was great with a ton of roasty dark chocolate, espresso, dark fruits& some good notes. Great flavor that is similar to the aroma. Great balance to hide the 10%ABV. Very good stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours out incredibly black and opaque with a head of thick, dark tan. An interesting take on an Imperial Stout with big robust and heavy roasted notes. A bit sweet and fruity in the middle with nice coffee and espresso notes. A bit of dark chocolate with nice heavy robsut notes. The finish is bitter with robust malts, light alcohol boozy notes and big in the mouthfeel. Overall a huge brew that satisfies my Imperial Stout craving.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: jet black, vanishing tan head, minimal lacing. Aroma: bitter dark chocolate, ash and light smoke, hint of licorice and vanilla, hint of plums and prunes. Taste: dark and roasty and bittersweet, with chocolate, vanilla, licorice, definite hickory smoke, soy sauce, hint of burnt molasses. Finish: long, roasty, and bittersweet, but with well-hidden booze. Notes: Big beer from a bold brewery. Not bad, but not amazing. Seemed just a tad muddled, like too much was going on. Still enjoyable.
