Crooked Fence Sins Of Our Fathers Imperial Stout 9.5% - bottle shared by Mick - thanks! The beer pours a deep brown with a rusty tan head. Thereís a rich maple stout aroma. Very soft bodied with a malty biscuit flavor. This is solidly delicious.

This was a shared tasting with Strykzone via Facebook chat. I purchased these two batches at different times before I sent him his bottle for our tasting so it possible we had different batches. His gushed, mine did not. Anyway mine poured black with a nice tan head. Nose of chocolate and citrus hops. Medium plus in body with a smooth creamy mouth fee. No sign of the alcohol. Flavor is rich with the chocolate leading but the citrus hops are present and vanilla and coffee appear. . Bitter finish but a nice chocolate bitter .Very easy to drink and really nice beer. Crooked Fence does a lot of nice stuff and this is one of there finest .

Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Mine was a GUSHER. Voluminous amounts of foam. The aroma is ashy with some chocolate. The flavor has that ash but not as much as is smelled. Chocolate leads with some coconut and soft citrus. Syrupy chocolate. A tiny bit of bitterness. The feel is almost powdery chocolate. Every pour was an absolute gusher. It was 10 to 1 foam to liquid. Ron did not have that issue at all. Were our beers from different batches? I do like this and it is really easy to drink ( when the foam allowed.) Tasty stuff.

Bottle from Beer Monger, Portland
Dark brown color with small head. Moderate expected Imperial Stout aroma with light apple and dust touch. Smooth, low sweetness, roasted malt flavor but also chocolate, astringent in the end.
Nice, but not special.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to John for sharing! Poured black with a colossal, quick-forming khaki head. The aroma picked up sour nutty and biscuity notes paired with vanilla and a little cocoa. The flavor found bitter, burnt cocoa and sour lactic notes.. roasty, bitter, and a bit sour on the finish. Medium-bodied and it seemed infected.. bummer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out roasted malts, some coal, and earthy notes. Flavour is fairly harsh, with notes of roasted malt, coconut, cocoa, coal and earthy notes. Not the most cohesive impie stout, but itís nice enough. Some harsh edges, but decent.

Bottle: Nearly black pour with tan, almost orange hued foam, settling eventually. It smells a bit of booze, espresso. Flavor is the same. Itís not too complex but itís good. The alcohol is well hidden. Itís just thick enough, very smooth.

22 ounce bottle from Lectvay in local for local swap. Creamy chocolate flavor with cocoa and some lactose (even if not intended). Hides the ABV. Very nice.
