3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Three Sheets. It pours black with a light brown head. The aroma has nice notes of chocolate and graham cracker with lighter coffee. The flavor is graham cracker, coffee and chocolate. A tad harsh on the palate as the alcohol is pretty noticeable along with heavy roast. The finish is a bit clunky, but overall it’s a pretty competent imperial stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is fig, deep deep chocolate and mocha. Slight roastiness and rich malts. Taste is similar to aroma with very chewy mouthfeel with chocolate, raisins and molasses dominating the senses. Finishes with slight bitterness and surprisingly almost no liquor snap for a 10% beer. Appearance is jet black with a beige head that retains fairly well.
