4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer had a better flavor than the big bad baptist, but the mouthfeel wasn’t quite as good. An excellent beer on a cold night camping in Zion.

A very good imperial stout. But no aroma it needs to be baptized I guess. No head okay mouthfeel.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Release #9 from Appalachian Vintner. Pours an opaque black from the bottle with a thin tan brown head and moderate lacing. Aroma of vanilla, dark chocolate, roasted malts, and a hint of booze. Taste was way more roasted than the sweet scent, but still nice with vanilla chocolate sweetness. Thick on the mouth with a hint of boozy burn. Wow, damn good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle, shared with Anthony. Release #8, 9.8% ABV. Black color, thin khaki head, leaves good lace. Big roasty malt flavor. Decent coffee, good bitter dark chocolate malts. Nice big bitter taste. Long roasty dark chocolate aftertaste. Great chewy texture, bigger body, light carbonation. Nothing special or outstanding about this, but a solid imperial stout, I’d say.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My bottle says: Release #5, 8.9% Alcohol by volume. Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a tan head. Aroma is dark and malty. Taste is smokey, notes of licorice, dark fruits, slightly sweet, and very complex. Long lasting palate. A very nice Imperial, very smooth and drinkable, thumbs up!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smoky, oily aroma has notes of roast malt, semi-sweet chocolate and good coffee. It pours a deep, warm sable with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled tan head that leaves some generous lacing. Rich flavor has roast malt, chocolate, coffee and subtle hoppy notes. Firm, smooth texture is fairly fizzy, leaving a persistent smoky, slightly sweet and fairly tingly finish. Epic indeed!
