2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The appearance did not impress me at all. The head was not even a centimeter thick and vanished within a second. There was no lacing. It was black when looking through the glass, but towards the top you noticed some faint red hues.
This beer was very drinkable though. I’m not a fruity beer fan so my expectations were low. But I found the pomogranite mixed with stout to be quite tasty. The pom taste is not overpowering at all, and compliments rather than conquers. I wouldn’t drink more than one in a sitting but found this to be a nice little treat at the end of the day.

Dark black pour with brown head. Roasted malts and dark chocolate on the nose. Taste is very interesting mix of chocolate, fruit, dark roasted malts. An enjoyable beer.

This beer tasted wood-fired. I was happy to try this beer, especially because I’m a fan of the Golden Ale. I would recommend this beer to anyone who likes stouts, porters, or dark beers in general.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2012 THIS IS NOT AN IMPERIAL STOUT. THIS IS AN IMPERIAL BLACK ALE. That being said: this is a very complex beer. Dark and rich with a pretty quick finish. This is not a beer for the uninitiated. Complex fruity heads. Large aroma out of the bottle. Tastes like it pushes for its gravity. Might mature beautifully if put up for a year or two, and mellow that bite out a bit, or smooth it. Overall a very interesting offering.

Bottle, pours a deep black with a tan head. I was a little skeptical of the idea of pomegranate in a stout like this, but it works. The subtle tartness adds contrast to the rich, roasted malt flavors that dominate.

2008 bottle at Oldsmar Tap House. Nice dark chocolate taste at first. Leaves a pomegranate after taste. Not sure exactly how to describe the smell. It was quite different but quite pleasant.

Rich, chocolate raisin aroma
Dark color with a small brownish head
Strong malty flavor. Fruit flavor is very mild. Flavor gets more complex as it warms up.

It pours dark with minimal head. Definite roasted flavors with strong dark chocolate overtones. Much more carbonation on the palate than the minimal head would give an indication of. Slight pomegranate taste which is not easily noticeable over the chocolate and coffee overtones. It’s a delicious brew.

Slight roasted malt and chocolate aroma with fruity hints. Pours black. I love a black pour. This is a very unique beer. This beer carries a thick, chocolate flavor that would be great all on it’s own, but what hits you is the fruity finish. This is my wifes favorite beer,
