3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle shared by drsordr in July ’13. Pours a dark brown to black color with a small tan head. The aroma and flavor has roasted malts, dark chocolate, tobacco, light coffee and earthy bitterness. Medium bodied for an imperial stout. Decent, but I would like to try on draft at the source.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml from Peabody’s Wine & Beer in Boone, NC. A nice stout scent with malt, chocolate with some hop dryness. Pours very dark brown with a very slight foam and alittle lacing. A very nice stout with a hop burn with the malts and chocolate but without the super sweet of some stouts which is nice. The palate has malts, semi sweet chocolate and a tinge of alcohol. Overall a very nice stout and would buy this again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster on tap at the brewery during RBWG. Near black color. Thin brown head. Dots and ropes of lace. Good robust, dark fruity aroma in the nose. Bigger body. Lighter, kind of soft, smooth carbonation. Lightly dry. Moderate sweet, moderate bitter. Roast malt, dark fruit, dark chocolate. Tasty, flavorful imperial stout. Not as chewy as others, but it hides ABV well.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap courtesy of Green Man for RBWG. Dark chocolate pour. Some nice expected chocolate and coffee notes, but is this a bit off? Some ethanol hotness, paint, and slight cherry quality. Kind of odd.
