the mouthfeel is a little thin for an imperial stout, but the flavor is complex with smoke, caramel,a subtle hop bitterness, and roasty malt. It is satisfying overall. There is a nice smoke aroma, along with a slight hint of spruce which is appealing and giving off a light tar scent, but not in a bad way. I like this beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown with tan head. Aroma is immensely roasted and sweet malt. Taste is molasses, dark bitter chocolate, with underlying earthy smoke that mixes with a bit of alcohol for a great finish. Some hop presence and bite as well. Medium to full body. As u drink it, the subtle falvours really add up and it gets complex with smoke, alcohol, and syrup. Stand out beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. heavy malt aromas of toasted, molasses and dark bitter chocolate, moderate resin and earth for the hops and yeast, with notes of smoke and alcohol in the background. Head is small, frothy turning wispy, light brown with a small ring of lacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium to full, syrupy, with a soft carbonation and a finish that is moderately alcoholic, and has a sticky on the lips and a numbing in the mouth feel. Big "In your face" aromas and flavors makes this Imperial Stout a top of the line beer.

Good bit of chocolate on the nose. There is barely any head, but it has a tannish foam color. Itís dark, opaque, and somewhat hoppy. Itís not bad, but kinda sweet for my flavor.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 650 ml, bottled 2/2012. Pitch black color, thin beige head. Coffee, roasted coffee, some herbs or spices perhaps and the loads of more coffee, espresso in aroma. Lovely so far. Roasted coffee and roasted malts in taste. Some mid-bitter chocolate also in flavor. Nice roasted coffee and chocolate in aftertaste, but also some light smokiness or burnt wood in there. Smooth, like liquid velvet. Some notes of salty licorice also detected. Really tasty and scaringly easy to drink.

Black with low head of big tan bubbles that dies.
Mostly coffee, but also other roasted elements like chocolate and an almost smokey note.
Full and violent like a Vampire slayer must be.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour with tan head. Aroma of cocoa, semi-sweet chocolate, molasses, and some dark fruit/mild hops. Flavor is dark chocolate, roast malt, mild plastic/grassy hop bitterness, and a tangy dark fruit finish. Semi-gritty, chewy mouthfeel. Somewhat ashy. Lingering cocoa and roast. Decent stuff.
