3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fresh bottle, 2014. Pours black with slight head, disappears fairly quickly. Aroma is raisin, plum, molasses, caramel, some alcohol. Taste combines all of those with a soy sauce kick (not overpowering or unpleasant, but definitely in the mix). Some chocolate notes. Big and boozy. Just great.

(bottle - 12 oz) Dark brown pour with a thick tan head. Chocolate and roasted malts in the aroma with a hint of roasted coffee. Lots of malt and dark chocolate with a nicely roasted and bitter finish. The hops are present but not out of place. Very smooth.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown to black color with a thin brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, mild coffee, vanilla. Flavor is slightly bitter, burnt malts, heavy dark malt sweetness. Medium body with a lingering burnt bitterness. Solid imperial stout, but not my favorite.

On tap at Matt the Miller’s in Grandview. Plead the 5th Imperial stout is a deep blackish brew with just a hint of brown at the edges. Nose is rich with dark chocolate and roasted black coffee notes. The texture is silky and very apparent on first sip. Taste is rich and malty with dark chocolate over very smooth hops. Finish is good dark chocolate bitters that linger a while. excellent imperial stout.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12oz glass to a tulip. One of the darkest beers I can remember. Nose is full of sweet alcohol vanilla and chocolate with a mild hop and malt character. Taste if full of chocolate and roast. Finishes dry with a slight hop character to go with the malt bitterness that lingers on your palate .

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass. Minimal head. Very dark to the glass. Aroma is strong chocolate notes with a slight smoke scent. First taste is complex with chocolate, roasty and carmel. Finishes with a slight dryness to the palate and a graving for more! A very fine Imperial Stout!
