4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Exceedingly full, complex and malty aroma, roasty and measurably sweet, with notes of semi-sweet chocolate, dark coffee, plum, black cherry, molasses, vanilla, faint smoke, loamy earth and a hint of medicinal alcohol. Fittingly solid ebony color with a fine, slight head. Flavor begins with some roasty grain and cocoa, turning lightly tangy and bittersweet, with a coffeeish, nutty, creamy, lengthy and warming finish. Lingering dark chocolate heaviness. Quite full-bodied, mouthfeel is thick and lightly syrupy. A quality offering.

Wow another winner with the moylans! Dark dark with a medium tan head that is medium lasting. The nose and taste are both chocoallty and just your typical stout feel to it. The taste is roasted but not in a bad way. Check this one out too.

Stout, Stout, knock yourself out! Good stuff. Opaque black with nice tan head. Familiar coffee/chocolate stout aroma. Full and rich in the mouth. Flavor of roasted coffee infused with dark chocolate. My kind of drink.

Bottled, thanks hopsrus!
Very dark brown, rich head. Loads of chocoalte up front. Sweet. Molasses make up the majority of the flavours and the thick, syrupy mouthfeel. Notes of liucorice. Flavourful, but unbalanced.

Very dark brown color with a medium tan head. Very sweet malt and roasted coffee bean aroma. Nice heavy malt, brown sugar, coffee, dark chocolate, and alcohol flavors. Thick feel, with moderate carbonation. Yummy!

This pours nicely, although it betrays its relatively light body (for an American-brewed Imperial Stout) with a relatively noisy pour. Nicely carbonated and it has a nice brown foam. The hoppy is a mixture of hoppy and burned malt. The flavor is heavily burned, slightly sweet on the end, but not a big range of flavor. The flavor is big, but a bit one-dimensional.

This beer makes me want to dance, or drink. Maybe both. This is a pleasant imperial.

Chocolate, rasberries, coffee, cocoa powder all in the aroma. Very thin late forming head that slowly dissapates. Very smooth, coffee, bitter chocolate, and alcohol with sweet chocolate flavor jumping at you after you swallow a drink. Nice and complex, very impressed. Very smooth, extremely good beer.
