3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from The Beer Junction, Seattle
Black color with large compact beige head. Roasted malt aroma, coffee, creamy cappuccino, light cardboard. Good body strength; moderate sweetness; it has a dark caramel backbone, with fake vanilla, some tobacco, correct bitterness, some cardboard.
A bit chaotic.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a medium tan head. Nose brings out light coconut and roasted malt. Flavour brings out light coconut flakes, roasty bitterness, almost a tangy note, and finishing dry and coconuty. Dry, coconuts and bitter. On the harsher roasty bitter side. Good beer.

22 oz bomber from where else, Beer Junction. Pours super dark ruddy brown with thick cream colored head that fades quickly and laces well. Aroma is dry dark chocolate malt with sweet vanilla and coconut. Taste is dark roasty malt with big creamy notes, dry chocolate and vanilla on the finish. Nice different take on the imperial stout, and happy for Beer Junction to get this - well deserved!

Cola and coconut in the nose definite macadamia and roast. Dark brown pour great lace. Flavors of coconut and macadamia creamy buttery not diacetyl. Sweet but toasty. Nice stuff.

Bomber, shared at home with my wife. Dark cola pour. Chocolate, roasty, nutty. Man, I could go for a graham cracker slathered with nutella. Moderately sweet, with nice roasty finish. Medium-full body, average carbonation. No real coconut that I could pick up, but that’s par for the course when it comes to coconut additions. This bottle was empty way too soon. Cheers to Morgan and the crew at the Beer Junction. Looking forward to many more years visiting this fantastic space.

Very nice Imperial Coconut Cream Stout. Not too demanding on the coconut but still pokes through. A real contender for the New Rasputin spot.
