4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at the brewery. Jet black with a black head that finally fades after a while. Oh my God. The nose is fine Belgian chocolate with some booziness. Indescribably good aroma. Taste is awesome, too. Not as thick as Bourbon County but amazing nonetheless. Semisweet chocolate, mild roast, vanilla extract. Delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle 1/12/10 (Coaltrain-Colorado Springs)-48° in Snifter-Pours black with a big tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Taste of chocolate and more chocolate along with some metallic. This full bodied brew is balanced very well and quite tasty and the cayenne creeps up on you on the back end. Great job.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with a thick tan head. Fruit nose with some milk chocolate. Heavy chocolate flavor that comes and goes through the other elements: fruit, hints of roasted malt, some alcohol. Empty, milky finish that has some minor burnt malt lingering about. The flavor has some subtlety, but there isn’t enough here to separate from others.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer pours black, with no highlights when it is held up to the light. The head is not very large, but what head is there is brown in color. The smell is roasted malt, with chocolate in the aroma as well. The taste is of milk chocolate with some hints of vanilla which I am assuming come from the oak. As dark as this beer is, it is not near as thick as other stouts like Ten Fidy, which adds to its drinkability. There is no alcohol detectable in the flavor, but you do get an alcohol warming sensation even though you cannot taste the alcohol. This stout goes down so easy that I could see the alcohol sneaking up on you in a bad way if you weren’t careful.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black with a small head, very imperial stoutish.. Aroma is moderately complex, with roasty chocolate notes dominating... Very flavorful, with the roasted bitter chocolate notes, creamy body, medium full bodied.. very very good, but i prefer the oak aged and the espresso to this version... The chocolate came on a bit too strong..

Pure black color with a nice and thick dark brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, sweeter malts, cocoa, and some vanilla. Flavor is of chocolate, malts, and oak. Has a nice chocolaty and oak aftertaste. I’m so happy to finally have had this one.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark oil like black that you have no hope of seeing through. I get chocolate, lots of the roasted malts of course, coffee along with some toffee in there as well. Wow! Full bodied beer. I think what I like most about this one is that the chocolate is not so upfront like some other chocolate stouts I have had. Not so upfront on the nose with chocolate like you might think. Everything seems to meld together very well in how the flavors hit your palate like every single flavor just knows what it is supposed to do. Great lacing of the glass and a nice takeoff from the regular yeti imperial stout.
