3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours red/black with a small white head. Aroma of dried cherries, cherry jelly sweets, roasted malt. Flavour of espresso, dark chocolate, smoke. Dry palate and a little thin. Interesting how the aroma and flavour are entirely different!

On tap @ Alibi Room. Almost black with little head. Some lace. Medium carbonation. Hoppy with licorice taste. Aroma is also mostly licorice. Body is a little thinner than expected. Easy drinking for a 7.2% imperial stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Alibi Room. Black with beige head. Lattice lace. Dark chocolate and some Marmite in the aroma. Soft palate is fairly thick with silky carbonation. Fruity, with rich acidity mixed with chocolate has a spicy quality too with some raisin sweetness. Decent complexity and lingering roasty finish.

On tap at the Alibi Room, pours black with a small off-white head. Aroma is dry roasted malts. Nutty, roasted malt flavour. Nothing exceptional here.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rated at the Longwood Brew Pub, how could it be any fresher than this? Arriving at my table in a lovely, tall glass, this beer had a thin tan head of no more than one finger’s depth. The body was seriously dark, and the aroma was a big-time nose treat of roasted/toasted malts. Taste was likewise, but featured a generous dose of burnt coffee and bitter dark chocolate. Nice mouthfeel, not thin like some other stouts, and a very smooth finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to mmmIPA. Pours a copper brown with a light brown head that leaves some early lace. Aroma of chocolate and roast. Flavours of chocolate and cigar box. Sweet with a medium mouthfeel. This was a nice little brew with nice flavour. But there is no way that this qualifies as an imperial stout in my mind. Rather it is a nice regular stout or even a london porter. It is just too light to be an impy. Still it was tasty mind you.

Light roast aroma.
Very dark brown, brown head.
Nutty a hint roast, light leaves.
Doesn’t have much happening.
