Poured from a 12. Aroma is boozy and fruity - raspberry and cherry. Flavor is biscuit with chocolate and caramel at first. The boozy, fruity flavor is at the end of the taste. Finishes somewhat sharp and astringent.

Great dark brown brew with beautiful frothy khaki colored cap. Lacing up and down the sides. Licorice, roast, char, tobacco, and minimal chocolate make up the aroma. Taste is of roasted malts, ash, slight coffee with some cocoa mixed about. Not super thick but medium bodied enough for me to enjoy. This was overall a fantastic imperial stout that more than surpassed my expectations. Enjoy!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle shared by Spencer. The pour is a light/medium black with a great darker khaki head and a couple spots of lace as it falls to a ring and thin film. The aroma is good. Lots of roasty malt and a great amount of chocolate. There is a light licorice grab, and it finishes a touch on the hot side. Really good. The flavor is really roasty. There's a great note of roast and a nice licorice. On the back end there is a good amount of licorice but it falls a bit thin. The mouth feel is thin. The soft carbonation helps it feel thicker, but it falls off the tongue pretty quick. The aftertaste is lightly bitter and roasty. Not bad, but it could be way better if it were thicker

This was a pretty solid imperial stout. Big flavors, nice color and head. A bit too much on the sweet side for my changing palate.
