Overall it was ok. Lighter in the mouth than expected for a stout. Nice flavoring of coffee, chocolate, dark malt with a good hop finish. slight metallic taste. Very drinkable, not as heavy as most beers this dark

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours a dark brownish black, with a thin tan head. Minor lacing around the rim. Smells like coffee, vanilla, and dark malts. Tastes of the same, but with more alcohol which eventually creeps up on you. Not a bad brew.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beer has a bourbony taste and aroma with lots and lots of vanilla. Very enjoyable. One of the best beers I have ever had.

Super roasty and toasty in this one, and no carbonation. The 11% is gone. Not even mild, just gone. It tastes like a regular 5% porter, with many imperial stout characteristics. Tons and tons of vanilla, but I oddly liked it. Nice bourbony taste to it. This was the beer of the night for me, and the many flavors were a miasma of goodiness.

12 oz bottle brought home from the brewery. Not much head on this black beer, but Roasty and sour aromas were nice. Flavor was burnt malts and not much of the sour I was looking for. Dark fruits and dust on the finish. Pretty good.
