3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: lots of chocolate and coffee; Appearance: pitch black with dark tan head that dissipates slowly; Taste: rich, malty, boozy, chocolately; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: very nice imperial stout but with so much competition in the category it doesn’t really rise above. Would drink again, though.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
It pours thick black with a nice brown head, good lacing. Strong aroma, of roasted malts, smoke and vanilla. Damn tasty in the palate, with a complex mix of roasted and smoked malts, whiskey, vanilla, coffee, cocoa. Not much taste of booze, sticky on the lips, full bodied and with medium carbonation. A winner! Fantastic ale!
