2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very dark brown, mid-tan head. Roasty aroma concentrated with light-roast coffee. Flavor is full-on coffee, pretty dry. Lots of acidity and seems kinda a one-trick pony with the coffee roastiness. A little bit of medicinal flavor. Thin, tart finish with a lot of malt dustiness and prominent alcohol. Comes across as a dry kahlua.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a medium creamy light tan head that goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is roasted grains, black licorice, fudgy chocolate and a little dark fruit.
The flavor is bitter charred roasted grain with some black licorice, chocolate and coffee. The mouthfeel is a little thin and watery.
Overall, an OK imperial stout. Itís thin and dominated by charred roast and black licorice.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
10oz on tap. Looks the part, real nasty! Black color, light lacing, light lacing, opaque. The taste is very good, bitter, with moderate complexity. The palate is not good for the style, though. Itís not as rich as Iím used to despite the high abv. Kind of leaves you flat.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Kind of thin on the tongue for an imperial but still acceptable. Worst part is no aroma. Nice chocolate coffee flavors. Light bitterness. Nice lasting head.

On tap @ Left Coast. Black in color with a khaki head. Aromas of smoke, roasted malt, char, and dark chocolate. Plenty of coffee and licorice, too. A bit of dark fruit and molasses sweetness. Flavor is on the bitter side with some hints of sweetness. Molasses, licorice, and lots of smoke and roast. Dark chocolate, coffee, and a touch of dark fruit. Burnt sugar is prominent. A bit papery on the finish.

very malty, chocolately, coffee, sweet, alcohol, a little bitter.
Tastes a little more bitter than expected. Roasty, coffee, bittersweet chocolate, hops, and a little alcohol. Similar to the aroma, but a little less awesome.
