4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A roasted malts, smoke, with notes of bitter coffee and chocolate nose. An opaque black pour with a foamy tan head and no lacing. Taste follows the nose - roasted malt, smoke, bitter coffee with notes of chocolate. Full bodied with minimal carbonation. Overall, this is a brew I look forward each year and it never disappoints.

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.

22oz bottle (2013) in a tulip. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some notes of chocolate and coffee, hints of smokiness and some dark fruits, hints of bitterness, and dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Smoother texture. A pretty good imperial stout but could be a little thicker and not as sweet.
