This would be a great Mother's Day gift to get your mother if she put you up for adoption and you were still holding a grudge. This stuff is awful.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz into a Allagash stemmed glass, bottle says 11.5 abv, 2015 edition. Pours a black meshed with brown highlights. White/tan creamy lacing, ample head, retention is solid. Aroma of booze, toasty malts, black licorice, figs, blackberry. Taste of bitter malts, roasty and chewy with a tang. Choco, vanilla, dark roast coffee, booze in aftertaste. A big brew with a large presence. Drinkable in a slow train environment, fortified by friends and time. An imp stout through and through, with excellence balance and the knowledge of you ate getting what was promised. A nice endeavor in late April in the Western mass hills while spring is hiding somewhere. Excellent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a pint chalice. Very dark brown with a large head, but just right for aesthetics. The head is a mochachino froth color. Cadbury chocolate and chocolate liquer on the nose. A little marshmallow is noted too. Moderately thick. Items detected in the aromas appear in the flavors, except there’s a notable smokiness that doesn’t get expressed in the nose.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pitch black with a thick khaki mocha head that hangs out a while and leaves a thick wall of soapy lace. Nose involves deep dark chocolate, roasty notes, creamy marshmallow, a dash of licorice, spicy pepper, and stone fruit. Quite sweet, decently bitter. Thick, full body, velvety, luxurious, soft, sharp with bitterness, finishing long toasty and warm. Really nice brew, decadent and dessert like.

Rich, roasty and dark. Thinnish, quickly disappearing head. A little boozy. Coffee at the end and a fantastic dark chocolate character.
