3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Taste is of sweet chocolate, caramel, light lactose, some roastiness, a bit rough and quite sweet. Medium to full bodied with some alcohol presence. Finishes to the sweet side of bittersweet. Nice one 14.9

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours with little to no head, dark chocolate color. I did not experience much of the coffee aroma or flavor as I had expected, but overall this is a very enjoyable beer. There is definitely a roasty quality to this beer, however as mentioned, I felt like there could have been a better focus on the coffee notes, but a solid beer all around!
