3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at STL RB Gathering - Pours dark brown, but a little lighter color than most in the style, and has an off-white head. The aroma has mild roastiness, hints of cocoa, spicy green hoppiness and mild fruit. Medium body with a crispness for an impy stout and semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with roast, lively spicy hops, dry cocoa and spice. The finish adds a bit of mild char. Enjoyable impy stout that is easier to drink that most.

12oz. bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Poured a deep reddish brown with a couple of fingers of tan head. Chocolate, roasted barley and fair amount of hops in the aroma. On the lighter side of the Imperial Stout spectrum. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. More roasted barley in the flavor and a good amount of hop bitterness. Dry malty finish with some chocolate. Nice to see this in bottles.

Pours an opaque black with a thick tan head. Not much in the aroma. Taste is roasty but overpowered by the bitterness of the hops. Tasty & bitter. An interesting stout!

A great imperial stout. Tastes close to Rasputin, but quite a bit mellower (less bite). The malt is nice without being overwhelmingly thick/sweet.

Draught in Lawrence. Nice dark brown pour with a nice khaki head and lacing. Pretty hoppy aroma balanced with roasted malt. Green hops in the flavor at first then finishes with coffee. Nice and not overpowering.
