3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Say this is good. Immediate appeal of chocolate-raisin flavors and aroma with some vanilla. Late palate is dry with bitter british hops. Possibly still better when cool. Black pour with edge of gold highlight, medium tan foam that leaves espresso rings. How the fuck is this NOT an imperial russian stout????? Ah who cares, leave that to the "Beer Style" fags to say what’s what.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Awesome beer. Been wanting to try this one for a while and it was worth the wait. Pours black with fluffy tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate dominate throughout. So silky smooth on the tongue with a chocolate sweetness, that is very deceiving. Can’t wait to enjoy another one of these some day!
