4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Moderate toasted cereal and molasses for the malt, light to moderate resin for the hops, light earth for the yeast, with a hint of tar in the background. Head is small, frothy turning wispy, brown with good slippery lacing and good legs and is mostly diminishing. Color is just about black. Flavor starts lightly to oderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately bittersweet and lightly acidic. Palate is full, creamy, with a soft carbonation, and a chewy and sticky finish. Everything about this Imperial Stout is spot on, Bold in the right places and nothing offensive about it.

Spicy and fruity, yet dark roasted and bitter at the same time. Lots going on - a little abrasive, perhaps, but a good brew overall (if a bit expensive).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared by Maek at the Craft Beer Picnic. An inky pitch black pour with a ruddy rusty head. 11% a bit boozy, very savoury with a bitter rich dark chocolate(80-90%cacao), slightly chalky taste , very rich, candied plums & pitted fruits with some roasty coffee notes. Quite complex. Wonderful. Boozy but good.

bomber, lots of rich flavors, very thick but the alcohol is well hidden, the rye isn’t noticable and couldnt really taste it, your typical above average stout

Pours a solid black with a tan head and lacing. It has a rich aroma of dark malt, toast, spicy rye, and some alcohol. The flavor is rich malt and some toast and coffee with a spicy eye finish over a heavy body.
