3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours black with a brown lasting foam. The nose is very pleasant with raisin sweetness, vanilla and coffee.
Mouth-feel is thick and creamy at first but is quickly followed by an acidic note that tires out in an astringent aftertaste. Nice but not great.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spongey head on a dark pour. Fairly light, yeasty, acidic aroma. Pretty mellow for an imperial stout - not too heavy and the hops aren’t aggressive. There is a flavor of sweet brown bread, followed by a hoppy tingle that sneaks up in the aftertaste. Good.
