3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pitch black with rich beige head. A very rich aroma that begins with hops and then goes into toffee, coffee and finally chocolate liquor.There’s a lot of fun in this stout, even if it’s hard to chug the bottle in one go.

Great solid imperial. Thick black pour. Nose was boozy, citrusy, piney, roasty, and a little bit of coffee. Taste followed with nice balance and a warming finish. Appropriately big body. Nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with a nice, dense, dark mocha head. Aroma of lots of roast, chocolate (especially bitter chocolate), dark fruit and some orange. Taste very roasty with a lot of bitter chocolate. Unfortunately, what Great Divide calls "Wonderfully dry hoppy finish" I call "hop character way out of style and a way to ruin a great RIS". Could have been great, except for that...

Very enjoyable. Deceptively smooth at such a high abv. I like the oatmeal version even better.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours dark-chocolate black with mocha-color, persistent, creamy head. Gobs of dark chocolate on the nose, all the way through the entry, middle, and finish palate. Overall, hides its 9.5% ABV beautifully, with no cloying alcohol heat or sweetness.
