4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Surprisingly this is pretty freaking good. Pour looks great. Dark black with a creamy coating dark beige head. Aromas of dark fruits and dark chocolate. Roasty but not too much. Tastes much the same with great depth. Very smooth. I donít get much alcohol here at all. Sumptuous. Man this is good beer. Iíve had better and more complex imperial stouts, but man this is easy drinking and it hides the alcohol well. Nicely done.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2013 Not-for-nothin, but uh, this is good. Bubbly head, heavy. Strong alcoholic finish. Complex enough, all right., but Iíve definitely had better ImpS. I canít put my finger on why itís not quite as good as the others. Not bad, but you can get a better one for your money, I think. I like the name and the label, regardless - they should have put snoop dogg on the label but I guess theyíd have to pay him.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottle. The aroma is of straight dark malt. Also smells pretty dry. The appearance is black with light showing through around the edges, and a tan head. The taste is very dry dark malt and finishes very earthy. The palate is a little unsettling because of the dry, earthy ending. Overall, this is a decent stout. I am interested in trying the barrel aged bomber I have in da cellar.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very dark cola looking beer with a frothy, brown head. Very strong aromas of dark chocolate, and coffee. Tastes of bitter coffee, some dark chocolate, and molasses. Bitter finish is heavy on the roasted flavors, very boozy, and even has some alcohol burn. Sour lactic flavors were very unpleasant, mix that with the aforementioned booze burn and this is a huge disappointment. Maybe I got a bad bottle, considering other ratings are so high, and that I really enjoy dark beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From notes: Poured opaque ink-black with a huge caramel-colored head. Roasty, chocolatey aroma, with a touch of an anise note. Full-bodied, with a slight oily thickness (though not unpleasantly so). Nice roasty, chocolatey flavor with a bright anise note in the finish. Develops a slight grainy note (oatmeal?) in the middle as it warms, as well as a very slight hop bitterness.

One of the best stouts Iíve had in a long time. Pours so dark it makes the Ron darker. Rich head followed by Ann amazing roasted malt taste. As this beer warms the palate gets more complex. Big flavor, big alcohol, big rating from me.
