3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
I didn’t expect what I got from this bottle! Everything about this stout was very good. I seem to say this a lot...the oy improvement I could ask for is a thicker mouthfeel.

Bottle at home. Aroma is dark malt, caramel, dark chocolate, rye bread, liquorice, raisins, roast, hint of vanilla, dark fruits. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a moderate roasty bittersweet finish. Body is just above medium. Good one!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Opaque brown-black. Soapy beige head. Aspirin dry cocoa aroma. Rich doughy chocolate flavor. Not as rich as a typical Imperial Stout.,but a little bigger than a straightforward Stout too. Sort of tame, uninspired. Decent enough.

12 oz. bottle. Pour was thick black with minimal tan head. Aroma was roasty malts, chocolate, coffee and a little ash or ash tray. Taste was sweet and chocolaty. Left a bitter chocolate finish.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Based on the ratings I was prepared to be amazed. On nitro tap at Pour House. First sip was thin with only a hint of chocolate. Second sop didn’t get any better. No body, no flavor, no sale.

Chocolate and roasted malt certainly make for a tasty beer but it doesn’t rise above with the best of the style.
