On tap @Brewberry, a dark beer with good brown head, good retention and lace work. Nose is robust on dark malt, dark coffee, even light smoked notes. Aroma is on lactose, plum, dark coffee, medium creamy, licorice, resin, toasted caramel, quite sweet, long dark notes on aftertaste, too much lactose in that.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has has molasses, anise, oatmeal smoothness, light chocolate and some apples. It has a medium / full body with a good amount of fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts with heavy anise, bitter roast, molasses, cream and a good amount of sweetness. The finish had dark chocolate and a lot of anise & molasses. Good stout,

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, purchased at 7-11, Kittery. Color is pitch black with thin tan head that didn’t stay long. Aroma is very sugary, burnt malt, over extracted coffee and faded vanilla.
The body is much thinner for the imperial style. In fact I was wondering how this is over 10% yet feels so weak and watery, should not be this thin. The flavor shows bitter coffee beans, traces of vanilla, weak roast with a dry texture after the sip. Also an odd, out-of-place fruit flavor in the background. Very sweet and surgery with weak flavor and thin body. Not what I was expecting (or wanting), a rather huge disappointment.

Bottle from world beers. Pours inky black. Thin tan head. Scent is malts and chocolate. Taste is roasted malts, cherries, some chocolate. Doesn’t taste like 10+ % at all. Dangerous and tasty.

Dark and lovely, as good an Imperial Stout as I can remember (maybe that’s a problem). Awfully tasty with no significant flaws.
