3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Falling Rock - Pours great - pitch black with a clingy, dark tan lace - expertly mask alcohol - creamy body - tastes like an amped up version of their oatmeal stout, with lower bitterness - medium cream sweetness, vanilla - tempered by black malt bitterness and roast that gets stronger near the finish, but never becomes astringent - hops kick in in the finish to compliment this - a touch of smoke in the finish - balanced and not overly assertive - nicely done, but needs a slightly thicker body.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught) jet black with dark tan bubbles. Nose of baker’s chocolate, fudge, unsweet. Taste of unsweet dry grain, too dry in fact, lacks good flavors. Creamy body, bone dry, fine carbonation and linger of cola root. Hard to describe this beer, but it was VERY average for an Imperial Stout.
