3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A - Pours a jet black with a full 2 finger mocha head
S - Dark cocoa, roasted black malt, toasted wheat bread crust, toasted sugar. Some sour artificial grape along with alcohol vapors.
T - Moderate cocoa powder coats the entire mouth. Heavily roasted malts, hazelnut, brown sugar, backed with a peppery hop bitterness. Some espresso comes out towards the finish.
M - Full bodied, but too much carbonation.
I’m digging the intense chocolate and the hops mixes with the espresso flavors to add nice bitterness. It starts out sweet but turns pretty dry toward the finish. It could use a little less carbonation. Great flavors overall.

Pitch black pour into snifter..substantial dark brown head..aroma of dark chocolate..espresso..French vanilla coffee..molasses..quite roasty with perhaps a note of some wood....medium body..slight chalkiness with some black cherry on finish..no real trace of the extremely high abv..surprisingly quite drinkable..texture is not really as full as expected..which is probably the biggest issue with this..

Pours black with very little head. Perfect aroma, not floral but smells of caramel and fermented fruit tones. Tastes the same caliber as much more expensive beers. Highly recommended.

Tap at Monks alehouse.. Pour is jet black with a nice brown head. Smell is roasted malts, slight citrus, some chocolate. A bit sweet. Taste is excellently balanced.. a complex malt blend.. roasted.. and a nice hoppy compliment. Very well executed. Coffee on the finish. Overall really enjoyed this one.

Aroma of roasted malts and a slight hint of vinilla. Pours a rich black with a mostly lasting, dark tan head and sticky lacing. The taste is bitter. Roasted malts, oak, a little alcohal, and a nice hoppy bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Full bodied and medium carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable imperial stout.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted blind. Deep black with a big foamy tan head. Sour dark malt and light baking spice. A bit of sharp heat and astringency. Taste is sour and odd—dark and roasty, with more baking spice, sour tartness, and a bit of dark chocolate/coffee on the finish. Pretty thin and watery…just odd tasting.

Creamy dark chocolate pour. Bottle from letspour. Super thick. Cocoa and nutty taste. Coffee notes. Good but a choker. Glad I'm splitting it
