4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very nice stout where the coffee doesn’t overwhelm all the other components of the beer. Not a lot to say beyond that, it’s got a fudgy character to it and is surprisingly very easy to drink for a Stout above 10% let alone 15% ABV.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle picked up in Corvallis. Tiny little ketchup-shaped bottle, but dolled up nice in a black triangular box and wrapped in purple paper. Pours black with short-lived brown head. Coffee, marshmallow, thick roast reminiscent of BBQ. Soy sauce, fudge, and vinous elements. Surprisingly dangerously smooth for 16% abv - well, it would be dangerous if it didn’t come in such a cute little bottle. Full body, slick and viscous. Overall: nowhere near as awesome as 1st edition was (thanks again for that, Carl), and at the price/ounce point I can’t really say I’d do it again, but still a nice treat in its own right. Pairs well with under baked ghiradelli brownies.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opaque dark brown liquid with a smaller dark tan head. Sweet aromas, with dark chocolate, dark fruit Dates, prunes and figs), along with a rye and toasted malt background. Strong sweet espresso start. Toasted and roasted malt along with a alcohol flavor in the middle and into the finish. Late burn on the tongue. Mild ash in the linger. Certainly a strong imperial stout. For the heft, this is fairly nimble across the palate.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aromas are sweetened coffee, dark chocolate, dried dark fruit, and light caramel. Tastes very sweet. Huge molasses and brown sugar. Underlying sweet chocolate, coffee and dark fruit. Light bitter roast in the finish but not nearly enough to cover the cloying sweetness. But I am impressed with how smooth this is for being 16%. Just a little disappointed overall.

8.5 oz bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks DuffMan). Looks good; a mostly opaque very dark cola with beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes good too; dark malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and roast. Some raisin and plum on the tongue as well. Mouthfeel is full-bodied, somewhat bitter, and pleasantly boozy. Intense, but good.
