3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I donít know, maybe i was misled. Thought this was a barrel-aged version (the tap handle said barrel-aged). I didnít get many wood notes. aside from that - it was a pretty standard Imperial stout. I enjoyed that it was served on nitro. I donít think there was anything super outstanding or amazing in my glass. It was just a little thin. I told my wife i was surprised at how drinkable it was. and not delicious drinkable - plain/boring drinkable. just not exciting.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber from HEB Pin Oak in Katy, TX. Poured into a teku glass. Appearance is dark black with thin white slightly tan head. Aroma of heavy booze and smoked malt. Taste dominated by booze of the first note then dissapates into a intertwined oak and smoked malt notes finishes boozy. I would imagine this would age gracefully.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Well balanced and barreling is well done but not a whole lot going on here in terms of being unique or original. Pours black with great mocha head and lacing. Creamy consistency. Easy drinking and well hidden booze. Finishes lightly bittersweet. Tap at Scion.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hearty black with 1/4 inch of medium tan head that faded fairly quickly into sparse wisps and med-thin collar. Pretty good legs, but only fair lacing. Aroma is warm woody bourbon, earthy/roasty/smoky malt, and black coffee. Taste is that roasty/smoky malt, bitter coffee, licorice, burnt hair and boozey heat. Not terrible, just unbalanced. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, that high alcohol definitely shows and itís a touch over carbonated.

Alcohol is mellowed out by the barrel aging. Nice carbonation and dried fruit overtones.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is roasty, vanilla, cocoa, sweet. Taste is sweet with a touch of bitterness on the finish, a bit of wood tannin, not over oaked but still present, full bodied, medium carbonation. Overall, tasty.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught. Inky black with small foamy beige head, faint caramel aroma for which you reallly have to strain yourself, low carbonation, thick body, caramel-mocha flavored rum-like taste, long finish with strong alcohol aftertaste. Very satisfyingly rich and strong.
