Bottle. Small amount of foam from pour. Chocolate aroma but it is weak. Nice full palate, coffee, cocoa, light almond note, some ash in the finish. Pleasantly surprised by this. Aroma is not much to speak of but the taste is solid.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Whoa, killer brew. Just shy of perfect, and those imperfections are just niggles. Little bit boozy, but hey, it’s an imp stout... Looks, smells, tastes, fabulous. Faultless finish. Can’t wait to return to the brewpub in San Diego.
