Tap at brewery. Dark pour with little tan head. Smells of dark malts, coffee and slight chocolate. Tastes of the same. Smooth on the palate. It was my favorite out if what we had at the tasting.

22 ounce bottle that poured a dark black color with a tan frothy head. Aromas of roasted coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and some cream. Flavors are the same as the aroma, they blended nicely and was a real good stout overall, I wish I had more.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
9/05/2009: Grumpy Troll Imperial Stout... Aroma: Roasted coffee and cream; dark chocolate. Appearance: Near black in color, opaque; dense, frothy, tan-colored head and decent lacing. Flavor: Seems burnt; some semi-sweet chocolately; sourish; dusty like cocoa powder. Palate: Medium-bodied; feels thin on the palate. Overall: More like bigger brown although the hefty alcohol is well-hidden; somewhat lacking overall for an Imperial Stout though...
Draught (ABV 11% / 55 IBUs) at The Grumpy Troll Brew Pub in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin. Rating #1 for this beer.
