4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours all black with a dark khaki, almost brown head that slowly expands into full as the beer settles. Pretty cool. Aroma is potent, and I must say unique. Raisin and alcohol stand out the most, but there is plenty of chocolate, coffee, and licorice in here as well. Moving on to the taste, it is dominated by the darker impressions. This being chocolate and coffee, while the liquor notes are still strong. This one is is full bodied with a thick, oily texture. The aftertaste is heavy and long lasting with chocolate and raisin. The alcohol content hits you quite quickly. It doesnít hide. For what Iím looking for in this style, this might be close to perfection. I am stingy and I throw 4.5 ratings like theyíre manhole covers. But this is worth it. This might be the best stout Iíve ever had.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dang! Thatís tasty. Itís like opening a bar of dark chocolate mixed with rich toasted (almost burnt) grain. Taste is strong, bold and deliciously chocolate, malt, toffee, raisins. Pours like spent motor oil--nice work. Finish is not too sticky and has a nice bitter punch. Age this for when the zombie come...

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of licorice, leather, chocolate, burned sugar, raisins plum. Taste is very complex, plum, licorice, chocolate, with a solid roasted coffee chocolate and herbaceous bitterness. To me one of the very best "clean" Imperial Stouts with Ten Fidy.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2016 Donkerzwart met dikke cremekleurige schuimkraag die langzaamaan wegebt. Koffie, gebrande mout, chocolade met een lekkere bittere afdronk. Blijft goed plakken. Prima volle stout.
