3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft - I was told it was 7.2% ABV at the brewery. A pitch black beer with an orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with an acidic note from the roasted malt - since the flavor is very roasted, but also has notes of oatmeal and chocolate.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown, looks thick. Nice thick head. Rich roasty aroma fulling just short of imperial status with oaty, creamy nuances. Creamy rich, full of oats, very smooth and full-bodied. Chocolatey - dark chocolate bitterness and light roast accents. Maybe some burnt fruit at the back. Excellent spring stout.
