3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Fat Headís Portland, pours a deep dark brown with a reddish tinge and a small beige head. Nose brings out fairly laid back espresso and a touch of roasted malt. Flavour is along the same lines Ė itís not terribly robust and full-bodied. Kind of an underwhelming impie coffee stout in terms of body, though the flavour is good. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled during CBC 2013. Black pour with a nice tan head that sticks and laces well. Nice aroma - roasted malts, velvety, nice coffee aspect, some nice chocolate mingling in there. Rich flavor, more roast, a touch of ash, coffee, and chocolate. Not bad!

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at mad mex. Big and black. Smell is volatile coffee. Quite strong, but not as strong as expected for an impy stout. Yes, that aroma is like alky fumes. Whiskey laced coffee impressions. Almost flat. Gets stronger during the session. Turns a little rude towards the end of the session. Finish is volatile coffee. Very alarming to the nose.

this one poured a medium to dark brown color with a lighter tan head. Aroma consisted of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and light green hops. Flavor was a bit lacking on the coffee tones, but still a great well rounded higher abv stout.
