3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber, thanks ctomson! Roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate malt. Pours black with one finger of light brown head that sticks around and not much lacing. Rich chocolate and roasted malt flavors to start. Finishes smooth, but just a hair dry with a touch of hop bitterness before it smooths out again and leaves only chocolate on the palate. Excellent imperial stout!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is not especially enticing, chocolate, booze, odd sour milk. The appearance is black, off white head. The flavor is bittersweet chocolate, booze, pine. The flavor is an improvement over the aroma. The finish is roast, sweet, pine. Enduring. Medium, medium/thick in body. Decent, pretty good overall. Not a standout in this style.

A pint of black with a thick brown foam. Light liqueur scent with chocolate highlights. Tasty rich dark chocolate mousse with nice bitterness. An elegant aperitif.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours almost black in color with a 2 finger light brown head that leaves some spotted lacing behind. Aroma is chocolate with maybe a hint of licorice and dark fruits and light roasted grains. Taste is a raisin and chocolate malty sweetness with a hint of licorice and a grassy hop bitterness. A little light in body for the style with light carbonation. Overall, this is a smooth, easy drinking IMPY that could sneak up on you quickly if you had more than a couple.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours deep brown with a tan head. Aromas of pine hops and metal. Taste is semi dry and bitter. Flavors of metal rods, roasted line cones. Alcohol is apparent. Sharp and slightly offensive. This is mediocre at best, but Iíll chug it because Iím ISO high boost tonight.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Mr. Goodbar in Buffalo, NY. Heavy on the chocolate. Impressive looking pour, just like youíd expect for an imperial stout. The ABV is deceptive...not as boozy as expected. Cool logo on the box too, with the domes reminiscent of St. Basilís in Moscow. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber pours with a nice deep dark mahogany body that supports with a somewhat thin mocha colored head. The aroma offers up an even mix of black licorice, chocolate and dark roasted to burnt maltiness as well as a bit of dark roasted coffee, molasses and more chocolate into the end of the draw. The taste starts with some sweetness, dark roasted malts, some chocolate and black licorice spiciness. It smooths out to midway with some molasses and dark chocolate joining all of the roastiness. Pretty nice.
