3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014 bottle. Black/dark brown in color with a small, filmy khaki head. Aroma is cream, brewed coffee, milk chocolate, and barely a hint of cayenne. The taste is ground coffee, cream, dark chocolate and a nice herbaceous bitterness that balances out the sweetness. Alcohol taste becomes more prominent as it warms. A slight peppery taste in the finish. A medium mouthfeel

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014 vintage. ABV is 11.5%. Pours very dark, almost black, with a nice tan head. Aroma of malts and alcohol. Taste is rich and fairly straight-forward. A good, solid imperial stout, but not great. Thumbs up.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. Black with small head. Pretty thin looking pour - doesn’t look like a typical imperial stout. This is quite an old bottle. Booze is present, but seems like it’s probably mellowed out some. Molasses is the main flavor with some dark chocolate as well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black, brown head. Smells chocolatey and coffee and red wine. Unfortunately its a bit of a soy bomb. Lots of red wine, too. OK, but not really my thing.

22 oz bottle from de Bierkoning @ home. 2014 edition (11.5%). Black color. Beige head with reasonable retention. Aroma’s: chocolate, sweet roasted malts, molasses, with mocha, molasses and some (red) fruits retronasal. Flavor is mocha-ish sweet, roasted, light drop. Body is medium to full. Finish of heavy roast, moderate bitter. Quite awesome - would love to try a barrel aged version of this.
