3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: deep brown, light head and moderate lace. Very dark roasted nose with coffee, chocolate and brown source. The aroma is good but verging on bringing burnt or too heavily roasted. Dry to off dry, not sour and low bitterness. The palate is creamy but lacking in depth & complexity of flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Mane Liquor. Pours black with a rich tan head leaving nice lacing. Nose is vanilla-esque with mild coffee, plenty of roast, slight dirt and toffee. Taste is very vanilla forward, almost essence but without sweetness dominating before the coffee and heavy roast come through. A note there reminds me of white chocolate. It has a mildly warming heat to finish showing its abv. Not a crazy stout in any way and fairly sweet forward but a solid drop

"it does have a nice flavor and a creamy texture, but calling it an imperial is a bit of a stretch. judged as a straight stout, though, it’s very good. well balanced and flavorful."
