500ml bottle, pours black with a small head. Aroma is chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla. For a imperial stout a light medium body, texture is oily with fine, lasting carbonation. Light malt sweetness with bitter notes at the finish.

"Kinda week and one dimensional for the style, though as a beer, probably there best I’ve had to date...just can’t think of the lightish sweet brew as an imperial."

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Tied House. Pours an opaque brown-black color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes gradually to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Medium to full body with flavors of roasted coffee, chocolate malt and piney hops. The finish is roasty with a mocha aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle, cellar aged for about 1 year. Aroma of deeply roasted malt, dark chocolate, faint licorice and damned if it doesn’t have a touch of blackcurrant there, too. Solid black in color with a lasting, intricate, fine, light brown head. Flavor profile is gently sweet and roasty throughout, more dark chocolate character and faint espresso, with a mild amount of bitterness blending in late and a touch of smoke on the finish. Fairly thick and chewy mouthfeel, body is pretty hefty as well. Perhaps not overly impressive but certainly tasty enough, not a bad rendering at all.

Bottle. Light chocolate and roasted barley malt aroma. Black with small brown head. Lightly sweet cocoa malt, ash, and mildly bitter herbal flavor. Light body for an Imp Stout. Nice taste - surprisingly light.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Served a virtual black beer with a thick tan head and ample lacing. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt. taste of coffee, some dark chocolate with some malt in the background. Has a bit of a coffee bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Full body, has a bit of a gritty coffee texture and the 9% ABV is quite evident. Enjoyable beer for the style.
