Bottle shared. Black pour with foamy tan head. Aroma is chocolaty, tons of cocoa, light chili. Taste is spicy, lots of cocoa, long lingering chili finish. Palate is full bodied, strong carbonation. Good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pitch black and completely opaque with a half finger mocha colored head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Slightly smokey, roasted aroma with dark and sweet malt notes, dark fruit and alcohol. Some charred wood along with dark chocolate, coffee bean, oatmeal, toffee and caramel. Some fudge/chocolate cake sweetness underneath, balancing out the smoked meat/burnt malts.
Slightly viscous medium body with a nice balance of smokey, roasted malt, dark chocolate and sweet booze. Dry and toasty with lots of dark chocolate, coffee bean and oatmeal flavor but it never becomes acrid or overly burnt tasting. There is some chocolate cake, toffee and caramel sweetness balancing things out along with some strong booze in the finish. Plenty of alcohol flavor but never hot or harsh. Not overly complex but has a nice balance of roast, sweetness and alcohol. Tasty but definitely a sipper.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown to black color with a creamy light brown head. A touch of roasted malts with a nice mild, not overwhelming, chili spiciness and a chocolatey sweetness. Similar flavor, but a touch of coffee shining through as well. A bit thin overall for an imperial stout, but enjoyable, with a nice lingering spicy chocolate.
