3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 FL OZ ($9.99) a good beer and is pretty complex. has a lot of flavors going on and is extremely drinkable at 9.5% ABV. I’ve had better imperial stouts and $10 for a 22floz is pretty over priced.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very chocolaty, chocolate nose and chocolate taste. A bit of powdery cocoa somewhere in the middle too. I thought that the palate was just a tiny bit thin for an IRS. An under appreciated ale.

If your a fan of stouts, this is for you. Taste more like a regular stout than an imperial.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle via trade. Pours a coffee brown color with a khaki head that settles into a thick ring after dissipating quickly. The coffee has washed out of this one already, and I think it’s several months (not years) old. There is some roastiness left, dry, with notes of cocoa, toasted sugar, and black olives. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, roasty, earthy mouthfeel. Not much to this one. I guess I’d like to get it again super fresh but I am not getting my hopes up for a transformative experience.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black, off-white.. tan head. Licorice, milky chocolate, some vanilla on nose. Doesn’t feel that RISsy, sort of milky sweet stout more. Med full bodied, nice. Had to re-check the abv, as it’s definitely too easy for what’s printed on the bottle. And too weak. Well fermented, smooth nice strong stout. Lots of sweets, but with a thinny body, doesn’t cloy or overwhealm. Nice, but not astonishing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, coffee, nice roasted malts, sweet brownie notes into a hint of earthy spice, some toasted bread. Taste was a mix of caramel, molasses, dark chocolate into some roast, coffee, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very nice stout on the maltier side. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Smells of cream and vanilla with some dried blueberries. Taste is very cream with lots of vanilla and fruity blueberry jam. Malty finish. Had in the bottle.
