   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Ernest (6200) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Draft. Head is initially small, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, caramel, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of black cherry, vanilla. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy texture, soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Too sweet, as with so many American imperial stouts. Mostly standard nose but some fruitiness admittedly adds appeal.

maxwelldeux (3611) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours an extremely thick near black color that reminds you of motor oil, and has a moderate light brown head on it. Nose is slightly sour, with some dark fruit elements to it as well as a lot of roasting. Taste is super creamy and just a bit chocolatey, with a lost of roasting and a subtle bitterness. Really very nice.

beernbourbon (1297) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle thanks to Brandon. Little bit gushy after wax and cap removed. Pour is pretty much black with a large brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, light toasted coconut, faint coffee, and light Belgian yeast notes. Flavor is very true to nose with lots of roasted malt and that light Belgian yeast note. Drinks easily. Smooth with alcohol hidden. Nice stout!

Lovely imperial stout that is not too boozy nor burnt. I enjoyed the herbal undertone to this big beer. Would dediently try again.

5000 (6265) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle:   Nice roastiness without being overly acrid.   Smooth, nice hop background.   Solid example, a little dry and ashy, some dark chocolate notes.   Simple and solid.   Very faint soy and dark pitted fruit as it warms.   Hides the 9.5% very well.   Solid!

jake65 (2613) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Serving type: Bottle, dipped in some of the most irritatingly resistant black wax that I’ve ever seen… a thorough test of my patience. Nearly black pour topped with a thin brown head. Sort of fizzy and quick to fade. Heavy roast and espresso fill the nose, followed by faint cocoa. Good roast in the flavor and lighter in the espresso. Modest amount of bittersweet in the tail to balance the roast. Mouthfeel is creamy and average weight for the style. Overall I think this is a good base beer, but lacking in depth to rave about as is. Looking forward to the BA version in the on-deck circle...

IndianaRed (2393) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Black with a fine and persist at mocha head. Standard non description roasty aroma. Nice roast and charcoal flavors. Some ash and a touch of bitter chocolate. Straight forward and good. Not particularly heavy and moderate carbonation.

burg326 (3667) - Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Poured a black color from the bottle with aromas if chocolate, malt, light coffee and some earth. Flavors are the same a little oily on the palate but a decent stout overall.

stevoj (2112) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Black and oily, smooth yet with a nip of alcohol warmth, a perfect fall drink. On tap at the Crooked Fence taproom, black as night with a small skin of beige head. Aroma and taste are rich roast grains, coffee, chocolate and molasses. Delicious, smooth and easily drinkable.
