3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22oz. An almost black one, topped by a finger thick light beige head. The aroma is on the malty side, molasses, roasted, almost burnt malts and some coffee and notes of dried fruits. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, but I find the beer too sweet. Some faint notes of cooked vegetables too. Full body with very soft carbonation and some alcohol warmth. Lasting sweet and roasted finish. Sure a nice one, but not impressive. 130805

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thin, cheap chocolate cordials, transparent booziness, slightly sharp, green coffee beans. Does not jive. Too thin and boozy with barely anything to back it up.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours black with a tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate. This has that distinctive Ninkasi flavor that's present in all of their beers. I just found it off putting in a stout. Watery mouthfeel. A disappointing Imperial Stout.

Dark but allows slight penatration of light around its edges. A light nutty smell. Notes of chocolate & wood.in the taste with a slight bitter at the end. Great full mouth feel that fades with a slight buzz.

Appearance: Black with just a wisp of a head.
Flavor: Dark dried fruit, roasted malt, molasses and alcohol. Medium sweet with a bitter hop finish.
Palate: Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation.
Overall: Interesting and intense flavor, but the finish detracts from the overall quality of the beer.

Way too thin for an imperial stout. Seriously, shit is weak. Otherwise nothing impressive.
