4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a thick, black color with a medium dark brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, toffee, roasted malts, and plenty of hop charecter to back it up. Flavor starts off with the chocolate, toffee, and roasted malts that give way to the slightly hop finish. Flavor lingers in the mouth for awhile. Very impressed with this brew.

Bomber. Pours very thick and black with a small head .. you know, like almost any other impy stout. The first thing I noticed about the aroma of this guy is a slight puff of smoke for the first half of the first glass. Once that subsided, I picked up chocolate, a bit of coffee, toffee and cherry. Very nice flavor. A bit of smoke to begin, but after that chocolate covered cherries and mild coffee take over. A slight hoppiness shows up when chilled, and it becomes overly malty when at room temperature. A bit too sweet at room temp. I think this was better then the Oak Aged version. Thanks to Ughsmash for the bottle.

Pours inky brown with medium brown head. Nose is chocolate, caramel, slight floral hops, mild alcohol sharpness. Flavor is chocolate and roasted malt, slightly harsh, with caramel finish. Nicely bitter aftertaste. Alcohol not hidden as well as the Oak Aged. Still pretty good stuff.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2007 Bottle. Holy Smokes what a beer! This Imperial Stout is near perfect. Perfect dark as midnight appearance with nice head. Very full flavored with just a little sense of the alcohol being detected. A great taste on the mouth that makes me want to drink more. I would love to get this on draft! Cheers!

Excellent Imperial Stout. A little too much alcohol taste comes through, along with the caramel, toffee, and nut tones. Slight bite and is best enjoyed cold. 500 mL poured black, seemingly crimson with minimal head that dissipated quick. I could roll with the Yeti for a while, however, I would have to expose him for the King...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Sweet creamy malt and dark chocolate aroma. Creamy molasses sweetness initially with a burnt coffee, chocolate and hops finish. As everyone else says, very good - excellent hopping but a tad on the light side.

Pitch black with thick head. Sweet liquorice aroma with roasty, almost smoked notes. Thick mouthfeel. Flavour is roasted, sweet and very bitter, all at once, but still very balanced. Loved it!

Deep deep black. Nice tan head. Plenty of thickness here in the mouth. Very complex taste with lots of chocolate and roasted malt well balanced with some bittering hops. My fave session beer as of late. It will be sad when i go back to WV and have to search for this...
