3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a flight. Pours a deep, cloudy cola brown with an off-white head that settles into a ring and film while heavily lacing the glass. Notes of chocolate, tobacco, earth, weat leaves, toast, brown sugar, oak, and dark fruits (dates, figs, and plum), with a faint moldiness to it. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and an earthy, sweet mouthfeel that starts sweeter and more chocolaty and becomes more fruity and leafy as it goes on. Not really my kind of imperial stout, but it’s okay.

Bottle. Black. Pretty nice nose. Not the usual roasty ashy coffeishy whatevery stouty drink, but quite fruity, belgian. Blueberries, fruity yeasty esters, but in a darker, roasty coffeish manner. Med bodied, quite smooth nice easy drinkable. Wouldn’t be surprised at all if this would be labeled as a blueberry (with ginger) stout. Has soft roast, but very fruity.
