4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
(From notes 15 Oct, 2012) Bottle. Large, thick brown head. Beer itself is pitch black. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate and smoke. Flavors are great; coffee, sweet malt stuff, chocolate and bitterness. Mouthfeel is very creamy. Finish is long and bitter.
I believe the Port is noticeable, as there was something different about this I can’t quite put my finger on. Hoppyness is nice in this one. Fantastic beer.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2010 Delicious creamy beer with a nice aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. The taste seems sweet at first, but will be followed by a long bitterness. Incredibly beer with a long aftertaste. great imperial stout.
