3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Coarse nougat colored and persistent foam. It is brewed with 7 malt varieties and smells wonderful coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is most influenced by the coffee and black pepper, but it also has a taste of brown sugar, chocolate and caramelt. At the bottom of the palate you will find raisins and other dried fruits and a little vanilla. Gradation is high and tasting a hint of alcohol toward the end. The hops are composed of European and American hops and provides long and heavy aftertaste. It is a tasty and elegant imperial stout, but it sets no new standards for the type that you have not tasted before.

Jet black in color with a nice brownish tan head. Notes of coffee, chocolate and heavy on the molasses. Light happiness and easy on the carbonation. One of the finest imperial stouts I’ve tried. I’ll be buying many more of these!

12.7oz bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is of malt, chocolate, caramel, and lactose. Taste is of toasted malt, with chocolate, caramel, and slight lactose. Has a bitter, earthy hop character as well. Lingering bitter chocolate taste. The alcohol is definitely there. Mouthfeel is light and sticky. Body is very carbonated, and thinner than expected. A very tasty, boozy beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark with a good khaki color foam head. The aroma has hints of coffee, chocolate, molasses, some caramel, and roasted dark malts. Tasting I noticed mild bitterness, nice roasted flavors, some sugary caramel, very rich in malts, and a yeast booze blended taste. The finish was enjoyable and the beverage was full in body. Overall this was a good brew but being a stout fan it missed the mark with me.
