4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a beautiful extremely dark brown with a smallish head. Great notes of smokiness and roasting to the nose, with good maltiness to the taste. But with this, itís easy on the palate. This is one of the examples of why I love Imperial Stouts.

This beer had a better flavor than the big bad baptist, but the mouthfeel wasnít quite as good. An excellent beer on a cold night camping in Zion.

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!

Batch#10. Very dark pour. Fantastic flavor. Smooth, nutty imperial flavor with a balanced bite. Doesn't taste like a beer with 10+% alcohol.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Pours very dark brown to black with a creamy light brown head. Aroma of roasted coffee and creamy dark chocolate. The flavor is smooth; dark chocolate is the dominant flavor but there is a slightly bitter espresso finish. The alcohol seems very well-hidden in the flavor yet there is some noticable alcohol warming. Overall, a very smooth, easy drinking imperial stout.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle -- release # is unreadable, but indicates 9.1% ABV. Pours like dessert in a glass ... rich and black with a sticky tan head. The initial waft is sweet and chocolatey ... The beer drinks as well as any American Imperial Stout can. Rich with full-on dark chocolate, a hint of espresso, and a sharp bitter finish to cap it off. Delicious! (#4172, 7/16/2011)
