3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Black, inky body with a small tan collar outlining the top. Aroma of heavy roast, cocoa nibs, dark malt, & some faint char. Almost like campfire wood, but not as smoky. Flavor is also very charred, roasted, & a touch ashy, but lands just shy of a full fledge scorching. Light undertones of cocoa & burnt caramel sweeten things up a touch. Some toasted nuts in the finish, a hint of black licorice & molasses, too. Pretty nice stuff.

Thanks Chris for sharing this 375ML bottle with us. Split 3 ways @ cellar temp. Pitch black. some alcohol legs, the bubbles are big but faded fast. Aroma is nice. Lots of chocolate, loads of roasted malts. a bit of cheap candies. just smells like a to-style imperial stout. Nice beer. Dark chocolate, licorice, high IBU, a little booz. the lingering chocolate finish. Very solid, well made stout.

Meh, more isn’t always better, this beer is just ok and not worth the price. Get a six pack of mystic mama instead.
