4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Preamble: This will be my first beer from FL, obtained in a trade from the most excellent Hopscotch himself. Being from the 303, I would never seek out a beer from the SE, yet alone FL.
Rating: Deep dark pour with a redish-brown thin head, Reminds me of tenfidy with a lighter head. Get hit with intense sweet molasses in the nose with a coffee nib background. Also gather in come piney hops.
This is a tasty balanced brew. A little sweet up front which quickly give way to the cedar and hops and a burnt coffee taste lingers on forever only to be balanced by pineyness on the outsides of the tongue.
This is a world class beer.

Backlog. Pours black with brown head. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, dried fruit, sherry, wood, and coffee. Flavour is roasted malt with lots of chocolate, coffee with a little smoke in the aftertaste. Very nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Has a great amount of alcohol and some sweetness to it. You can taste the cedar and the caramel. The hops is noticeable but not taking over. 110k is delicious!

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark black with a thin head and light carbonation. Has a nice imperial stout nose and intial taste. Has a initial nice chocolate malt taste but has a lingering perfume after taste that lingers and to me ruins the beer. Very disappointed considering cigar city is one of my favorite brewers.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Sample from motortoddhead. Thanks brotha! Deep black pour with minimal head. Nose is a mix of dark fruit and grainy roast malt with a dash of dark chocolate and cocoa. Flavor is a decadent, silky dark/Baker’s chocolate, slightly gritty, mixed with deep roasted malt and a hint more of the dark fruit. Residual gritty chocolate. Extremely rich and tasty with a milkshake palate. No alcohol, and way too easy going down for the ABV. Despite the slightly underwhelming aroma, this was killer beer. Thanks for the uber goodness Todd!

Opaque black beer. Chocolate coloured frothy head. Nose of roasted malt and minerally hops. Softish palate. Rich well roasted malts A little chocolate and light coffee. Touch of hop bitterness on the finish. Not the smoothest of Imperial Stouts but quite drinkable.

Bottle. Pours tar black with dark copper head. Aroma of astringent dark roasted grain and bitter cocoa. Flavor is much the same with a strong malty back bone, alcohol, strong dark roast bitterness. Heavy mouth feel, slight oxidation, low carbonation. Overall, outstanding beer!
