3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gushing bottle purchased ad Holiday Wine Cellar in May, dark brown with some tan head. Aroma is pungent cardamom, some raspberry, something weird and unenjoyable. Taste is overwhelming cardamom, raspberry and chocolate take a backseat. This didnt work for me at all.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; poured a dark brown to black with a light brown head. Aroma of raspberries, roasted malt, herbs, caramel and chalk. Flavor was complex, but somewhat strange. Raspberries pronounced, roasted malt and meat in the finish. Palate a bit flat. Somewhat messy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours with a dark body that supports a mocha looking head of foam. The aroma seems to be cola, some spicy anise, dark fruity esters, ginger and pumpkin like spices. The taste is sweet with sugary malts, a dash of molasses, a sweet cola note and then a sweet nectar like blueberry sensation. It gets mildly dark and roasty with malts to midway and toward the finish. Interesting and the level of spice here seems to be right on as it lets plenty of the malts and such shine through.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Minty, raspberry, flaoral aroma. Prominent raspberry flavor, with similar floral character (from the cardamom, I guess?), and subtle chili pepper flavor. Tart berry aftertaste.

Poured from a 750ml bottle. The raspberry is very sting, chocolate, caramel, slight alcohol heat. Really light bodied for an imperial stout. The bottle kept foaming over.

Whoa, cool shit! Dark brown pour with a brown head. Love the cardamom and the hint of raspberries against the roaste malt and chocolate notes. Damn fun beer and damn good.
