4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled on 11/28/12. Poured into a snifter. Pours thick black with a 1 finger dark mocha head. Head stuck around for a minute and then quickly disappeared. Aroma is mostly filled with roasted malts and coffee with a little chocolate there. Taste is filled with dark chocolate and espresso. Underneath all the roasted flavor is a touch of sweetness that leads to a nice bitter finish. Noticed the taste of booze more as the beer warmed up. Really well balanced flavor overall. Mouth feel is fairly heavy with moderate amount of carbonation but still creamy. Great imperial stout, best I’ve had so far this season.

15/20 really thick syrupy, very powerful but coffee overwhelms it a little bit. It's good, I enjoyed it but it lacks some of the complexities of other imperial stouts. Far away from the quality of KBS.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12fl oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Opaque with a small brown cap. Aroma is raisins and alcohol. Flavor is strong roasted malt, dark fruits, alcohol burn. This beer is thick enough to chew. Long lasting, deeply bitter finish. Leaves your mouth sticky. This is a slow drinker. Excellent dessert beer that would be perfect on a cold winter night.
