Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark cocoa, roast, coffee, slight spice, yeast, hints of earth. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, nice slight caramel, finishing sweet, slightly roasted.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1,000th Rating! Purchased from Leary’s, the Amesbury location.. $6.50 for the 650 mL bottle.To oversized snifter, it pours a mahogany-tinted dark brown/black combination with which a razor-thin off-sienna headhalf a pinky in length stood. Aromas of cracked chestnuts, sorghum molasses, roast, flaked barley/spent grain, muddled mint, graham crackers, coffee syrup, wild rice, oak chips, and as archaic as it gets, bird seed. Tastes the same (yes, even the bird seed), with the addition of grill char, unripe blackberries, caramel, earthy hops, and table sugar. You’d think I’d go out of my way to get a King Henry for this special occasion, but no. I’m a man of the people, not of the hoarders. This imperial stout was a decent time, but at the end of the little session, it’s just not going anywhere. No crunch, no chew factor, either. Eh, whatever. I’ll try anything once.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown pour, black in the glass with a small tan head. Decent lacing and nice legs. The aroma is mostly medium roast coffee, with some chocolate and burnt notes, some faint spicy hops, and a bit of alcohol. The flavor brings strong cocoa, chocolate, and burnt malt. Fairly strong alcohol, and a finish that is a good mix of sweet and bitter.

Black as night pour. Smells like an old barn. Taste is malty and sweet. Palate is full bodied, thick on the back end. Overall, a wonderful Imperial, will get again.

22oz bottle. Pours dark brown almost black with a tan head. A bit thinner than most imperial stouts but still not bad Best thing is that it is almost half the price of most of the other impy’s.

This beer is very good and strong and thick but it’s also sweet ,right at the edge of being too much so. Looks outstanding. Good.
