4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2015 Poured from 12 oz bottle on a dark and dreary August day that is more like mid-fall than August. Dark dark brown in the glass with a minimal, tan-colored head. No lacing to speak of. Aroma is mostly rich dark chocolate with dark coffee, leather, butter, alcohol, and a touch of hops (pine) underneath. Taste: obvious alcohol presence at 10.5%, but dark coffee, caramel, coffee, chocolate and wood - maybe even a touch of charcoal. The texture is very silky as it passes over your tongue - very rich and full. Finish is medium and a pleasant mild "burn" from the alcohol at the back of your throat. Eat this with a rich beef stew on a cold winter’s day and you’ll never be happier!
-------- notes: poured from growler into snifter. Dark dark brown color with milk chocolate brown head that was slow to form, got about 1 finger, then falls to a thin resilient layer. Head leaves lots of lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, licorice, and coffee. Taste follows the aroma with coffee and dark malt taking the forefront. Lively carbonation on the tongue and a very long finish.

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.

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.
