3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Stone World Gardens 07-10-09. Pours a dark brown with a nice lingering head. Solid caramel and chocolate aroma. Flavor is relatively plain and not as complex as expected. There is nothing wrong with this beer, but it simply doesnít have a lot going on. Very clean finish and great mouthfeel, if not a bit too lively on the tongue. This is a well-made beer, but there is nothing remarkable about it. Iíd definitely like to try again, though.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Looks like a chocolate desert, dark brown with a big, foamy head. The aroma is rich and slightly tart, and the taste is big and strong. there isnít a lot in the front, but the malt announces itself in the middle and then thereís big, dark chocolate and a smooth, smokey, dark-roast coffee finish. the 8.8% ABV isnít a presence in the taste at all.

Dark pour with a sudsy tan head and foamy lacing on the glass. The aroma is roasted malt, bakers chocolate and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, soy sauce, chocolate, and cream. Decent

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black, with a tan head. Aroma of malt. The taste is rich and bold with lots of roasty coffee along with hints of toffee, caramel, vanilla, subtle smoke, espresso, cocoa, and bitter dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with decent balance and a fairly dry, bitter finish. Overall, this is a very solid and drinkable stout, thumbs up.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pretty dark sludge shade of black. Impressive creamy tan head. Aroma: malted milk, very upfront hops, rich chocolate. very hoppy flavor. Charred and hoppy goodness. Very bitter aftertaste. Not spectacular but I still think this is pretty cool. And I really like how this is right in between a regular and an imperial stout.

This was a decent stout, but nothing to write home about. I didnít think it was as complex as some of the other stuff out there (like Yeti) and it lacked body. Good stuff, but not great.

Four pack. This is the sort of Imperial stout I like. Not syrupy or boozy, but rich and chocolatey with a long aftertaste. More dark chocolate than milk, and with good depth of flavor. No West Coast hops here.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Aroma is nicely oat-ey if thatís a word. Pours an oily black like I just pulled the drain plug on an engine. Flavor is quite tasty, deep roasted malts, coffee, toll house morsels. Palate is nicely filling. Overall, I believe Iíll be finishing the bottle in short order. Get Some!!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful stout with a most charming roast complex. Dark dark dark complex thatís got tons of black wheat, chocolate, and lots of smokey earthiness and dry bitter qualities to it. Some sweetness on the swallow, but itís malt sweetness and the malts in this one are smokey and earthy so it isnít a too much of a wet sweetness. Great beer, nice and chickory and dark.
