3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 not the most pleasant stout, but what can you expect from 75 ibu (are you man enough?). The head disapears, flavor is comlex as well as the aroma. I enjoyed it with a brownie.

Schwarz mit dunkelbraunem enormem Schaum. Röstmalzaromen Kaffe, dunkle Shokolade, etwas Melasse, Tabak, Holz. Vollmundig und cremig, malzig: Kaffee, Schokolade, leichte Süsse, und dann massive Bittere die im Abgang bleibt, fast ölig. Sehr gut.

Drank a 12 ounce single. I’d never seen it before but I’ve had the Oak Aged Yeti on several occasions. This beer was a bit more aggressive, not as rich. I expected it to be very similar but it was fairly different. None the less, a very good Imperial Stout. Not as smooth as the Oak Aged, but still, an aggressive brew.

Pours black with a thick, tan head. Smells like chocolate, coffee, a lot of dark fruits. I had this side-by-side with the Oak Aged Yeti and Great Lakes Blackout Stout... What surprised me is how much smoother in your mouth this is than the Oak Aged stuff. The fruitiness is a little overwhelming, but it’s still very drinkable.

Lately Ive been wondering if I like IIPAs more than any other style of beer. I just drank tis and now I remember why I like Imperial Stouts the best. Nice chocolate aroma, pitch black in the glass and the most important part: Massively heavy, creamy, rich tasting brew of chocolate, caramel, and molasses. Very satisfying.

330 ml bottle. Inc black color with small brown head. Aroma with lots of chocolate, pine and coffee. Malty, quite dry, well balanced flavour. Surprisingly long aftertaste.

A little lighter in color than most imperial stouts. Pretty roasty in flavor. Good beer, but ive had better imperial stouts.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Good Lord!! Humongous beer. Probably an average 12 pack’s worth of hops and malt in a single pint-six bottle. The color of (over)used moter oil. Has a significant lasting head. Lot’s of licorice in the nose but overpowered by malt. Tastes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate . Extremely thick. Maybe have been psychological, but my glass felt kinda heavier than normal when full. ;) I bet there are 500 calories in a bottle of this stuff. The three main tastes are MALT, HOPS AND alcohol. Very generously hopped. I had to drink this slowly. Warms up very very nicely. Hard hitting hops finish. The stout for hopheads.

Poured a thick, black pool of oil with an insubstantial, cardboard-colored head. Very pleasant aroma; malts, chocolate cake, and perhaps some citrusy hints. The flavor is malts and bitter chocolate and then BAM! Hops out the wazoo...to my palate, waaaay to much hops and it seriously throws off the balance of taste. As the mug warms, the hop assault is diminished somewhat by sweet aftertastes. The high alcohol content is masked well, but hell, you could hide a dead salmon under that blanket of hops. It’s not bad by any means, but not my idea of a great imperial stout.
