4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Nose is cola, blackcurrent, lots of cherry, orange undercut by some earthy coco notes. Taste is dark chocolate, vanilla, berry, hints of coffee, chocolate ice cream, banana, slight smoke in the aftertaste, caramel. Silky mouthfeel.
This is a very nice beer, that has a lovely depth.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Tried both the cask and the draft, this is the draft rating. Poured nice and dark, almost black.Smelled and tasted coffee, and nuts, with a nice big bitter finish. Medium -full bodied, and very tasty. A good solid stout.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pitch black with a reddish tan head. I get a big aroma of coffee, with some chocolate, a touch of alcohol, and perhaps a bit of toffee. Taste has a great roasted flavor. It is different than the aroma impressions in that it is a fair balance of chocolate and coffee. I get just a touch of a dark fruity flavor also. Extremely roasty. Maybe even burnt. The aftertaste is just like the flavors when drinking. Dry, bitter, and with an oily texture with a good amount of carbonation for one of this style. This one is exceptional.

Bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a creamy tan head . Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Flavour is mainly coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts and maybe some liquorice also. Well balanced sweetness, and smooth texture. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2013 Light black with tan head. Aroma is caramel malts and slight mocha. taste is bitterness, toffee and caramel; perfectly balanced between the three. Yum, and so easy to drink. Palate is not too big - bitter with some caramel. Overall, the perfect sessional stout, though a big one at that (8.8%!).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours black with a thin beige head and plenty of lacing. Very warm, roasted coffee aroma. body is lacking for an imperial stout. Taste is coffee and chocolate with come cherry notes. finish is bitter chocolate and hops. decent but admittedly pedestrian Imperial Stout.
