3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Share courtesy of Gription79. It pours with a dark mahogany body supporting a tan head of foam. The aroma initially has a vague but pleasing nut sensation and then it seem to get into booziness, dark roasted malts and faint chocolate brownie. The taste has a nice chocolate bar goodness that heads into smooth semi sweet nuttiness and dark roasted malts. To midway and into the finish it grows more and more boozy. Nice sipper.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Sean - thanks! Black pout with a large froth of dark tan foam. Aroma is dry roast, nuts, chocolate, light bitterness, and some darker fruit notes lurking underneath it all. Taste is roasty with chocolate and nuts but there’s also a metallic twang (or perhaps slight sourness) with some hop bitterness. Clean, lightly coating mouthfeel. Okay.

Bottle from Staff Club. Pours an imperial stout brown with a tan head. Nose is some roast, some baker’s chocolate, some nutty character, and some faint fruitiness. Flavor is similar- roast and earthy coffee up front followed by fruit and mild chocolate in the mid and finish. Interesting, medium-bodied stout.

On tap at the brewpub, poured into a sample glass. Pours black with dark brown highlights. Thick body and low carbonation. Taste is chocolate with nuts (I could pick out hazelnuts). Alcohol well covered, best imperial stout I have had with nuts added and best stout I had for the night.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. The aroma of nuts filled my nose. Notes of chocolate, coffee, caramel, hot alcohol, freshly opened can of nuts. Not bad.
