Very nice stout. The espresso was prevalent in the taste. Went back for more at the beer fest where I sampled it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of raisins, dates, licorice and cocoa. Deep black with a moderate tan foam top. Full, rich flavors of chocolate, coffee, fudge and molasses. Very thick and rich. Overall, this is a heavy beer with over the top richness and tons of malt. I’d give this a B+ rating.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a medium tan head. Aromas of rich dark fruits. Plum, raisin, chocolate, and caramel. Taste is much of the same with a little spice, nutmeg and coffee. Finish is sweet with a little touch of bitter chocolate. Good flavors, but feels a little off balance.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has a smooth, innocuous mouthfeel coupled with a lingering aftertaste of anise, caramel and chocolate. It’s a decent session beer that has a starless black complexion and a dense nose. Not great, not bad.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours black with a dark tan head. Big chocolate aroma, sweet malts, vanilla and a hint of oak. Sweet flavors, dark fruits, chocolate, vanilla and roasty malt. Disappointing mouth feel, very light, light carbonation.

Bottle shared by mdfb79. Thanks Dan.
The beer appears a near black shade with a lasting beige cap. The aroma offers dark fruit, roast, chocolate, respectively. The flavor follows suit, with prominent dark fruit and some roasted malt. Silky smooth and palate coating. Overall, a very pleasant and drinkable imperial stout. I would definitely have this again. Recommended.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Craig’s. Inky black pour, almost no head save a thin beige ring. Big milk chocolate nose, liquorice, slight roast barley, soft mocha coffee. Palate is dark chocolate, rich liquorice, some toffee and a firm roasty backbone. Long warm roast finish, touch of liquorice, roasty bitterness. Light carb prickle but not too much. Lovely.
