3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2013 When pouring you could tell this was not going to let light in, jet black with a sliver of a brown sugar head. Aroma hits you with cocoa and cherries up front. On the palate you get the cocoa right away and cherries in the middle finishing it off with slight vanilla and a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel just gets to the heavy phase with nice low carbonation. Could be a touch smoother but a very stout nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malty sweet aroma mixed with a touch of chocolate and some alcohol finish.
Dark brown pour topped with a medium brown head with a small amount of retention and a little lace. Not much carbonation present.
Chocolate dominates the taste from coca with a slight bit of alcohol that strengthens towards the finish. Malty roasted mouth-feel and barely noticeable dryness complements a sensation of drinking a dark chocolate bar.
A not too complex RIS that is easy drinking.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate, coffee, a little vanilla, and dark fruit, plus some dough and light bitter notes. Flavor the same with a pretty good blend of everything. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer.

On tap at Global Edw. It arrived in a tulip black with a creamy tan head. I expected a roasted aroma and was surprised to find cream, cocoa, and dark fruit instead. The flavor began with cocoa and coffee. Dark fruit and some cherries. Vanilla is lighter. Some lactic notes. Alcohol was very well hidden until the last sips when just a whiff was caught. However, by the bottom of the glass I was kind of ready to move on.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/1/13
Aroma: The nose is right on from the description: lots of chocolate and vanilla, with some cherry
Appearance: It pours a dark brown-black color with a brown head and some drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is rather sweet and malty, a little roasty, with some mild booze and mild bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it is a little sticky, with a soft carbonation, and light heat
This was an interesting Imperial Stout. It is interestingly sweet in this style. I canít, off-hand, think of another one it reminds me of. Anyway, this is worth trying.

Aroma is some cask, cocoa, lactic vanilla, and even some chocolate cherries. Thick, viscous black with dark tan head. Sweet chocolately taste, like a dark chocolate and vanilla ice cream float. Thick, heavy coating body, slick though, very drinkable except for the overall heaviness.

Pours a thick rich deep chocolate pour. Nose is chocolate, with sweet fruit and whiskey notes. Taste is rich chocolate with fruity vanilla notes. A very drinkable beer, with the alcohol well hidden. Finish is sweet , but not over the top, with a cherry chocolate ending. A great imperial stout. Quaff Score 8 / 10 ( Dessert in a bottle )
