4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
First thing I said "God that nose is wonderful." After tasting, first thing I said "This is amazing." I really believe this is the best imperial stout I’ve had next to Dark Lord. I am VERY impressed with this and am happy to learn it isn’t nearly as difficult to get as Dark Lord. I need to find a case of this and just sit on it. This one only and 6-8 months on it and I can only image how amazing it will be after a few years on it. This was a soppy sweet wonderful excuse to spend an afternoon!!!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of molasses, dark chocolate and anise. Pours inky, oily black with a thin light brown head with no retention and minimal lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt flavor and dark chocolate. Finishes with molasses and anise with an extremely smooth ending with a little bit hop bitterness, but not a lot. Excellent stout!

Thick black pour. Motor oil like. Tan head with slight reddish tint while forming. Palate is absolutely HUGE. Super thick and heavy full body. I really enjoyed it. Deep roasty aroma with some hops and chocolate present. Flavor is deep and complex. Well balanced. Very fond of this beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in a trade with Phaleslu, thanks! It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted chocolate, coffee and a touch of vanilla. The taste was intense, nice oily mouthfeel, more chocolate and coffee with a nice roastiness and some light spiciness towards the finish.

Bottle to glass. Pours a thick pitch black color with a nice brown head. Aroma is a potent burnt roasted malts, coffee, chocolate. Same in the flavor. Giant mouthfeel with a lingering burnt roasted malts. This is a big beer! Definitely a sipper. Very nice. Would love to try the BA version.
