3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Big molasses aroma with malty nots. Pours an opaque black with a nice mostly diminishing foamy tan head. The taste is malt forward. A strong molasses flavor up front, with dark roasted malts and a bitter finish. Medium-full body with medium carbonate. Overall, good but not as smooth as Piropeller Imperial Stout.

I like the name, the beer is good - just ok for the style (my favorite). Doesn’t live up to the name as it drinks like a small impy by today’s standards. Nice notes of coffee and chocolate and roasted barley with moderate bittering hops. I’d get again maybe in a smaller format, but no need for another big’n.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is roasty, chocolate and a touch of coffee, pretty simple but nice. Taste is roasty chocolate and coffee as well, some nice bitterness, a hint of vanilla as it warms. Tastes a little light for an imperial stout, but great flavour.
