3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
dark brown pour with a little red tint to it. smoky, coffee, chocolate aroma. rather thin looking for an imperial stout. a good balance of sweetness, but comes off a little weak overall. pretty drinkable, but not so exciting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slight sweet aroma, a touch of roast there. Pours a dark black, with red highlights (when held up to the light), with a large tan head. Slightly sweet flavor, touches of sugar, vanilla, and dark fruits. Slight bitter finish. Not the best Imp. Stout, but for $4 a bomber, not bad at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown/black with a smallish light brown head. The smell was not very heavy on roast or chocolate, but more of dark fruits and sweet molasses, with just flutters of roasty malts in there. The taste had more of those characters than the smell as it was decently roasty on he palate. You still definitely get some dark fruits in there mixed in. Medium bodied for an impy, and not overly flavorful. Just mediocre at its finest.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black pour with a tan head. Aroma of light roast, chocolate, caramel malt. Flavors of milk chocolate, light caramel malt...perhaps a bit of malted milk balls. Medium body, bittersweet with a bitter sweet/roast finish. Not bad, but not all that terrific.

Very nice and very drinkable for an Imperial stout. Lacks a bit of that Imperialness that some have but itís still very nice and very warming especially since itís cold outside.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2008 Since my first rating was lame, I figured the best thing to do was to axe it. This brew is better than one might expect, given itís style percentage. Itís readily available, and it has a deep malty taste. Flavors of chocolate, caramel, and coffee.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tastes more like a special edition from a macro than a specialty macro. This beer reminded of Guinness however more expensive. Large head and good color thatís what stood out most.
