Roasty malt and chocolate aroma with a dark, cloudy brown color. Very little head. Nice flavors of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts dominate. Quite hoppy and tasty.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep black with a rocky thin beige head. Rich roasty aroma with a slightly sweet undertone with slight chocolatiness, but still mostly blackmalt roasty with a touch of licorice. Flavor is dark and strong, with semi-dry roastiness and a touch of dark cocoa, some roast, and a little bitterness. Light chocolatiness throughout. It’s good, but it’s a bit of a by-the-numbers imperial stout. Nothing memorable...but good. Maybe I’m just one of those biased stout raters.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a 22 oz bottle shared on Easter Sunday. Pours a hazy cola brown with a tan head. Aroma of dark bread dough. Favors of chicory with notes of chocolate and some really off flavors. Smooth finish but unable to finish my pour.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Perfectly black body with a thin light brown head. Tons of milk chocolate in the nose along with some hint of roasted almonds. This tastes like dark chocolate covered almonds with some notes of salt added. Bits of lightly roasted coffee come through and even hints of prunes in the finish. The body has a surprising amount of carbonation for the high abv. A nice toasty warmer. Well done.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz bottle with a badass label. Pitch black pour with a tan, bubbly head. Roasty aroma, with a bit of chocolate, and an incredible amount of acetaldehyde. Smells like a goddam pumpkin in there. Roast, coffee, and rotting pumpkin in the flavor. Drain.
