3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks thin for an impy stout, deep brown/black but it lets light through for some ruby highlights, no head, aroma is alcohol, sweet malt and deep roast, flavor is mild oak, roast, hint of chocolate, pretty mild in general, extremely weak for an imperial stout

Opaque, no lace, leaves glass clean.
Medium body and flavor, smooth texture, high heat but low carbonation, avg length.
Mildly bitter, not dry, low acidity, well balanced.
Medium strength roast flavors, coffee, hint of chocolate.
Nothing special but nothing bad.

A slightly thinner than usual and more bitter than usual imperial stout. Still get some coffee and chocolate, even a hint of smoke. OK, but doesn’t really do it for me as my favorite style.

I feel like this beer is so close to wondrous but somehow missing the mark. All the flavors are there just not enough of it. A year of aging would help tremendously and hopefully help the banal ale finish

Slightly smoky smell which is awesome, couldn’t quite see appearance in mug or bottle, taste is heavy, slightly smoky mostly coffee heavy malt that stays on palate forever, bit bitter after the sip that slightly intensifies over time, would score a little higher if it lost a touch of the bitterness

Run of the mill imp stout. Flavor is thinner and everything is lighter. This is a imperial stout light. Not a bad beer but closer to a regular stout.

Pours a black from a bottle with quickly dissipating khaki head, minimal lacing. Aroma of chocolate, Moxie cola, but it even smells dry. Flavor is overly roasted, not quite burnt but bitter brownies maybe where someone forgot to add sugar. Not that I miss the sweetness of other stouts, the dryness is probably the most interesting thing going on here. A total score of 2 might be a little harsh, but after trying their Siren Noire I’m a little surprised at how not awesome this is.

Farbe tief schwarz. Aromen nach Cassis. Nur ganz leichte Röstnote. Geschmack dann leicht säuerlich. Im Abgang bitter. Die 8%alc schmeckt man nicht.

Geruch nach Molasse, dunkler Schokolade und Zuckerrübenkraut. Der Geschmack ist sehr intensiv, aber nicht schokoladig und auch nicht besonders süß. Mal was Anderes und sehr gut.
