4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Jacs, Madison, WI. Thick brown black, opaque. Deep creamy beige head. Roasty vanilla choco-aroma. Almost non-existent CO2, which is common it seems among drafts of this (but I had it more recently at Dexters freshly tapped and it was phenomenal fresh and carbonated). Smooth chocolate tones, with the the slightest hint of fruity alcohol warmth. While big and full, it has more in common with your classic Stout than your new school Imperial Stout, but manages to incorporate mild vanilla, and big chocolate flavors.

Dark pour with a nice big tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, light chocolate and touch of coffee which flows into the flavour. A nice slightly bitter aftertaste. A very nice Imperial Stout.

A que bebi estava quase perfeita, a pesar de estar muito próxima da data de vencimento. Só faltou força no nariz.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I tried this beer a while ago before I was into craft beer - I didn’t like it. Now that I’m more enlightened, I am going to give it another try. A rating of 100 gives it a lot to live up to. The aroma is complex: boozy, spicy, hoppy, roasted malt and black licorice. Pours near black with a large tan imposing head that lasts forever. Flavor is bitterness up front, followed by the roasted malt that was present in the smell. Tastes more like a black IPA than an imperial stout. Reminds me of Firestone Walker Wookey Jack. Bitterness comes back in the aftertaste - I would like to know the IBU’s on this one. Palate is okay for a stout, but I have had way better. I like it better now than before, but in no way should it be rated 100. Too bitter, not a complex enough taste.

The hoppiest stout i've ever had. Burnt coffee and strong taste of alcohol. Nasty.....

The body is black as night, totally opaque with a highly carbonated cola-type head. Nose is smoky, with touches of coffee and chocolate to be had. Fairly crisp palette, and a wide-ranging flavor profile that exceeds that if the nose, with fruit notes and alcohol hotness present. Really solid stout.

Jet black. Tan head. Coffee and chocolate nose. Flavor is very meaty. Coffee finish. Some dark chocolate. Smoke. Ash. Really good. Thick and viscous. Sugar coats your lips. Really enjoyed this.

Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice small head. Heavy malty aroma. Starts intense malty, oily, earthy notes, hints of liquorice. Not too dry. Also hints of bitter chocolate. Finish well balanced, not alcoholic, warming-malty. A great beer!
