3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pours silky black with a fine ring of beige head that dissipated over the course of drinking. Interesting aroma of roasted malts with a touch of pine sap/ resin, citrus and anise. Maybe the amarillo showing through? Flavor is straightforward dark cacao, espresso and a bitter, dry finish. One of the hoppier IS’s ive tried. Overall very tasty but lacking balance, perhaps a touch of conflict of the peppery hops they were going for with the saucy roasted malt base.

Bomber from the Beer Store in Frazer. Very dark brown with a rich tan head, lightly carbonated. Mocha malt flavor, mild smoky hops finish. More Yoohoo like when colder, hops edge starts to be more pronounced as the beer warms. Good quality imperial stout but not really a standout within this style.
