UPDATED: JUN 14, 2016 Tap at brewery with commonmac. Black with tan head. Malty coffee nose with some chocolate . Sweet , sugary, good creamy coffee. Much less bitterness than others in style . Some chocolate and booze, but subtle and in balance. Finish is balanced and sweet. Booze comes out as it warms. Great beer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap pour at the brewery for a good cause. Deep cola brown with tan head. Aroma is a heavy dose of coffee with toasted nuttiness and maybe a hint of chocolate. Taste is like a strong straightforward coffee with roasted espresso beans, some burnt sugars, chocolate, and a potent boozy finish. Full mouthfeel. Bitter dark chocolate lingers in the aftertaste but the coffee dissipates slightly. Symbolic of its name, it starts off as a bitter and aggressive war before ending in a sweet, pleasant symphony of peace.

Very roasty and malty with strong coffee and chocolate aroma. Dark pour but no head, and hardly any lacing. Pleasant palate and boozy finish. Very good but russian imperial stout competition is stiff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle courtesy of Hoff! Pours out a dark brown/almost black color with a small creamy tan head of foam. Aroma of dark chocolate, burnt espresso, black malts, burnt sugar, and hints of vanilla. Taste of black charred malts, burnt day old coffee, sweet caramel, burnt sugar, earth, hints of licorice, and vanilla extract in the finish. At first was too charred and burnt in the flavor, but digging it the more I drink it and it warms up.

Extremely subtle aroma hinting of chocolate and almost flat, headless pour gives the impression that it’s a lackluster imperial stout . Quite fortunately, wave upon wave of flavors and sweetness of varying intensities greatly enliven the brew once poured into your mouth. Very satisfying when enjoyed on draft.
