Clearly very unctuous in the pour. Dark brown with aroma of chocolate, cherries and hops. Tastes of the same with lingering grass in the aftertaste.

It’s late and I’m tired. Nice, chocolatey IS. Caramel, chocolate, burnt toast and a bit of liquorice. Mild alcohol warmth, cut nicely with a dry, bitter chocolate finish. As my buddy Tiki noted this is kind of a light-heavyweight fighting in a heavyweight class, but this is good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with a faint tan tint and a tan ring of lasting, light lacy head. Smells of light berries - blackcurrant, brown sugar (icing), vanilla and roasted coffee. Tastes of sweet malt, roast on the tongue, with a burnt ash and slightly alcohol finish. Full of malt with an alcohol burn. A decent stout but its too boozy. Needs a few years.

Pours death metal black with a very thin pumpernickel cap. A punchy imperial stout, with a really smooth chocolate & espresso signature. A port-like finish adds a sweet reverb to each sip. Does not have the ass kick of their Kentucky bastard & it doesn’t go as deep as many imperial stouts do but it is a pleasure to drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Very dark reddish brown pour with a tiny dark beige head that disappears almost immediately. Nose is primarily dark fruit with a backing of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted nuts. taste follow the nose with some vanilla notes also present. Lightly sweet with a good level of bitterness and the alcohol making itself known but not overpowering. Full creamy mouth with soft carbonation. Nice stout.

Bouteille 341ml, gracieuseté de wilco, thanks Mike! Couleur noire opaque, mousse moka foncée fuyante. Arôme de chocolat noir, caramel, café, malt torréfié, un peu vert, boisé léger? Goût de chocolat noir, alcool, malt torréfié. Carbonatation faible, corps moyen-dense.

Nickel Brook’s signature imperial stout looks beautiful in the glass and pretty damn good on the tongue as well. It’s all roasted coffee, bitter chocolate and strong licorice. Decent

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Too much alcohol and not enough flavour. Small head, rich thickness and mouthfeel, slightly sweet but not malty. Wish this was more 6%.
