3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells dark and sweet like espresso and sin. Pours black like a shadow in the night. Taste fills a void with sweet hops and roasted bitterness...almost like chewing on a chocolate covered coffee bean...but much more exhilarating! I'm a bit smitten by the darkness!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber pour to tulip glass. Very black color. Frothy beige head one finger thick dissipated quickly with no lacing. Smells of chocolate, vanilla and dark dried fruits raisin/prune. Nice boozy warmth is detected almost immediately. A lot of flavors here dark chocolates, mocha, smoky oak and vanilla. Subtle bitterness from hops balances and ties the flavors together. Creamy smooth mouthfeel and very drinkable for a high ABV. Cheers!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour with frothy beige head. Aroma of malts, chocolate, coffee, faint caramel and hint of vanilla. Taste of heavy malts, roasted coffee, sweetened chocolate, green vanilla beans, and a hint of lactose. Full bodied, beautiful creamy mouthfeel, perfectly balanced. Low hop bitterness which was nice for a change on an imperial stout. Delicious beer!

Bottled: poured black with a tan head. Aroma had malty roast with a stale biscuit taste. I am giving up this bottle was poor. Had some funkiness to it in a bad way. Probably bad bottle!

Bought this on 12/15/2014. It exploded in my fridge four days later. Beer everywhere. Took two people an hour to clean up. I had several other 22 oz. bottles in there which were fine.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bomber from Mr. Aís liquor in Vista. Pours dark brown/black with a rich, creamy khaki head that leaves thick, artistic lacing. Aroma of plum, chocolate, coffee, molasses, alcohol, slight vanilla, and sweet malt. Taste is tending toward sweet but is well balanced with light bitterness, overall pretty dry. Full body with a thick, creamy texture, medium carbonation and long, balanced, chocolatey finish. The alcohol is present but not over the top for 9.5% abv. This is a well crafted imperial stout, recommended.

we had a 22 of this beer alongsode some of the cream of the crop impy stouts last night, and in comparison it flat out sucked. it may have done better by itself, but still... looks like a porter (sorry, i like my impyís to look like motor oil) and has a weakish but non-offensive roasted malt aroma and flavor. for an impy it sucked...it would be an ok porter."
