3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampler from bottle. At a tasting of imperial beers, this one stands out pretty nicely. Seems to have been brewed with softened water, making a slightly tart and sour nose from the outset. A choclately dark head covers a taste that’s also smooth, with a good compromise between grains and hops. Happy alcoholic notes add to a slightly fruity finish.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A tar black color with a small, truly brown head of poor retention. Aroma of spices, dark malts, licorice, and quite a bit of cognac. Taste of dark malts, cognac, wood, some roast, and a bit of molasses - bittersweet. A full body, a creamy texture if there ever was one, and a flat carbonation. Finish is long and introduces vanilla into the mix. Overall the beer is splendid; the finish does get a bit tart, but the whole experience is marvelous nonetheless.
