4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the bottle at Big Beers and Barley Wines. Wow, this a phenomenal and way to easy drinking at 12ABV. Pours like 30 weight engine oil with a slick mouthfeel. Trends toward the sweet and fruity side but not cloying at all. Great beer. One of the stars of the show for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Port Street Beer Bar, Manchester. It pours jet black, with a medium dark tan head. The nose is rich-roasted malt, coffee, tar, dark chocolate cake, sweet dark fruit and ash. The taste is roasted malt, ash, dark chocolate, treacle, gateaux, charcoal, coffee, underlying alcohol warmth, light acidity, decent bitterness, salted caramel and liquorice, with a warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Rich, smooth and flavoursome. Tasty.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 ounce bottle. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch brown frothy head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. Aroma is nice, it smells like chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruit (cherries, raisins), coffee, dark bread, and some molasses. The brew tastes like milk and bittersweet chocolate, dark fruit, brown sugar, molasses, roasted malt, and coffee. This is a very sweet tasting brew! Itís certainly one of the sweeter imperial stouts Iíve had recently. Mouthfeel/body is full, itís creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew a lot, itís another one that I would definitely buy if I see it again. $9.99 a bottle.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. A tan head of finger-thick size sits on top of a black body. The aroma has chocolate, some coffee, alcohol notes and some licorice hints. The flavor is roasted and bready, quite sweet, with chocolate and alcohol. Super smooth on the palate, full-bodied and warming, finishing with a roasted kind of bitterness and alcohol warmth that lasts. A tasteful beer, indeed, but a bit too heavy on the alcohol. 120511

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle. It pours like a 12% imperial stout should...extremely heavy, dark brown with a brown head that builds slowly and then collapses rather quickly. The aroma has lots of molasses and prunes with some supporting chocolate, coffee and hints of black licorice. The flavor has tons of prunes, raisins, molasses and some burnt malt in the finish. Body is overwhelmingly thick and syrupy. It finishes with a dirty, burnt bitterness. A bit too much, but I canít say I didnít enjoy it.
