3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank on 4/5/14 in memory of Kurt Cobain while watching Nirvana unplugged. 12 oz nitro version pours a brownish black with a a thick grayish tan head that leaves good lacing. Smells of roasted malt, black licorice, caramel, dark fruit and dark chocolate. Tastes of a the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy and lightly carbonated. Great imperial stout. I want to try the regular version now for a comparison.

In spite of a pretty vigorous pour, a very thin, creamy, caramelized colored head appears atop the opaque, very dark brown color. Chocolate, dark fruit, and light smoke comprise the surprisingly mild nose. Thick, creamy and smooth. Caramel, vanilla, coffee, and dark fruit in the very well-blended flavors.

Pours very dark brown, love the cascading nitro action with a tan creamy head. Aroma roast malt, milk chocolate, toffee, hint of alcohol. Taste roast malt, sweet milk chocolate, toffee as in the aroma, slight coffee, alcohol throughout, but not boozey or overpowering.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours very dark brown, cascading nitro action, half finger creamy head. Aroma roast malt, milk chocolate, toffee, hint of alcohol. Taste roast malt, sweet milk chocolate, toffee as in the aroma, slight coffee, alcohol throughout, but not over bearing, hint of earthy hips to balance everything out. Mouthfeel smooth, rich and creamy, nitro really shines here, nice alcohol astringency, very balanced finish. Overall really good beer, not a top Imperial stout, but more drinkable than most and very balanced and tasty.

Pours black with a medium chocolate pillowy head. Aroma is black licorice, chocolate, coffee. Mouthfeel is smooth with low carbonation. Taste is subdued with dark fruit, chocolate, and black licorice. I think some age would make me enjoy this more.

Good. But way too boozy. It’s the first and last notes I get. In the middle is a solid stout. This one would’ve been better a t 8.5%.
