3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad!
The beer is dark brown with a long lasting beige head that leaves random traces of lacing on the glass. The aroma offers dark roast, malt. The flavor brings hints of coffee and finishes dry, with notes of bitter chocolates. While I wasn’t blown away by this, I thought this was a decent beer. Worth a try.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.0 A: Black color. Only 1/3 of a finger of creamy light brown head formed.
3.5 S: Moderately high roastiness, molasses, caramel, and light coffee. Pronounced hoppiness featuring citrusy orange and flowery earthiness.
3.5 T: Moderately roasty. Molasses, caramel, and coffee in that order. Fairly dry overall. Higher potency bitterness coming mainly from the hops. Citrus and earthy hop flavor.
3.0 M: Medium body. Moderate, though bity, carbonation. Lacking creaminess.
3.0 D: I’m not a huge fan of hoppy stouts and this is one. The mouthfeel is also pretty mediocre.

Small cream colored head. Hoppy malt and coffee ground smell. Bitter taste with coffee grounds and a bit of chocolate after taste. Not very complex, and not a great imperial overall.
