4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2010 Sample from a bottle courtesy of JaBier at Jackie O’s BBDA and Oil of Aphrodite Release and Barrel aged Beer Festival on 9/11/10. This Stout is an inky black color with a medium tan head that evaporates slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of burnt malt, dark chocolate and oak. Rich body with flavors of roasted malt, molasses, caramel and coffee. The finish is roasty and chocolatey with a lingering bourbon aftertaste. Really solid brew overall.

Thanks to JaBier for bringing this out and sharing! Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon, some dark fruit/tobacco. Flavor is a little sweet at first with chocolate and vanilla notes, followed by a toasty, slightly bitter finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle purchased at the Co-op in Arcata, CA. Black pour with a medium tan head. Aroma is bourbony, but not too much so. Also contains dark fruit, chocolate and roast. Flavor starts with vanilla and turns to sweet chocolate and has a bitter roasty finish. At the nose, I was confused why this beer is held in such high regard. Smells very good, but not outstanding. Then I tasted it and it all made sense. Very good stuff.

Had this at BCTC after the fest, back at the campsite, courtesy of Rudy. Pours a deep chocolate brown with a thin to medium bodied tanned beige head. Sweet plum and prune, chocolate and vanilla. Big sweet chocolate cake and pudding flavors. Lots of chocolate, toast. More pudding under a super hoppy ending.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Just when I think that I’ve had my favorite Imperial Stout I get something else that changes my mind, and this one did just that. I’m gonna go out on a limb again and make this one of my top 10 beers thus far. The pour with thick and syrupy. The carbonation wasn’t really big, and neither was the head, which was actually pretty sparse. The aroma was big with hints of coffee, chocolate, and maple. The ABV was actually hidden very well by the flavors which made for a great tasting, easy sipping beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber; enjoyed this while some weak fireworks crackled in the night in central wa; light black pour with creamy chocolate head fading quickly to the edges; aromas of molasses travel away from the glass; delicate aromas of chocolate, red wine, oak, coffee; very light and delicate for an impy stout; definitely rich though and dull bodied; plenty of bourbony sweetness and zero brunt malt or astringency; well crafted and well blended without a doubt; like vinnie, matt is a master blender; the more I drink, the stronger the bourbon and I find myself wishing for a little more stouty astringency; ridiculously rich, creamy and smooth though; delicate creamy sweetness: enjoyed much more via bottle than on draft; not quite in the league of ones like berserker though
Original Rating 6/3/10 (Overall score - 3.7) - Draft @ Browuer’s Stout Fest; dense black with thick tan head; chocolate, candy malts, cherries and oats; perfumy nose with booze, bourbon and brown sugar; sticky oatmeal with smooth blend of coffee and chocolate; clean, roasty mouthfeel with candy sweetness; not overpowering in any way and a nicely, crafted imperial stout; need to get a bottle to revisit
