3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours as dark a black as any beer I have seen. Dark fizzy tan head that takes forever to dissipate. The aroma is of dark chocolate, roasted malts, light coffee. The flavor was a bit harsh. The stout flavors came roaring out at you, with chocolate, coffee, and bitter roasted malts. Not a very smooth finish, but a very full flavored beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16.9oz bottle. Pours thick totally dark in the glass with a big foamy brown head, light retention with not a ton of lacing. Nose has a lot of wheat flour, along with some meaty smoke and coffee. Flavor is packed with rich chocolate malt, licorice, and roastiness. Somewhat acidic, too. Hops are present but not particularly strong. A tasty stout, and the big wheat component keeps things interesting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(from notes) Not sure about the "wheat" part of this one- comes off as a typical, albiet good, imperial stout, with the use of wheat as a main grain having little impact. Appearance is thick and black, typical Imp. stout. Aromas shows off burnt bitterness, some bitter choc. and coffee. Flavors of heavy roasted malts, sharp coffee and cocoa. Faint grainy breadiness... from the wheat?
Good. Nothing as unique as the descrip would have one think, though.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2015 Dark amber-brown...good head. Intense aroma of fruity esters, baked dark bread, chocolate, and nail polish remover. Very bitter. Outweigh sweetness by quite a bit. Long phenolic bite, hay, licorice, char. A bit too bitter. I wish the taste was a wonderful as the aroma.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pours black with a nice big off white head. Flavor is light on the palate at first but creamy and milky after it warms and you slosh it around in your mouth for a sec. Flavor is malty and roasty and average as far as imperial stouts go, the wheat adds a freshness and soft creamyness which is the only thing that moves this beyond average.
