3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to snifter. Looks good; a mostly opaque very dark (almost black) cola with deep beige head. Smells of dark malt, bitter chocolate, and roast. Tastes like it smells with a fairly bitter medium to medium full-bodied mouthfeel. A little unbalanced, but enjoyable nonetheless.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Big, black body with a thin tan head. Nose is dark roast, a bit of ash, some weird fruitiness, and a bit of baking spice. Taste is roasty with some charcoal, a bit of dark chocolate, and some booziness that’s oddly sweet. Slick, with a medium body and smooth carbonation. Just an odd beer with some flavors I don’t normally associate with imperial stouts.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a black color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee, chocolate and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

Bottle from a trade. Poured into a snifter at home. Deep brown, nearly black with a mocha head. The aroma is dark fruits, rootbeer, cocoa nibs, vanilla, graham crackers. The taste was chocolate, nibs, slight coffee, vanilla, graham cracker, and prunes. Thin mouth, medium to lighter body for the style. Slight bitter finish. Very good.

12oz bottle, big thanks to tmoney99 for sharing. Black color. Little, kind of bubbly brown head. Bigger body. Kind of chewy. Light carbonation. Nice mild dry finish.

Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation, very nice big chewiness to the texture, almost creamy. Mild dry finish. Great, satisfyingly hearty imperial stout.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, dark fruit, nice brownie note into a bit of dark chocolate, some slight coffee and caramel note.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Blak thick oily pour with a sixteenth inch of darker brown head. Aroma is fairly straightforward, light but bold and rich: acent of rich creamy chocolate, dark fruits, plum and currant, bourbon and molasses. Flatter carbonation, thick creamy mouthfeel, finishes a bit gritty. Taste of bitter chocolate and peanut butter, some cocoa. Alright but nothing substantial.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Baldwin beer store. Pours black as night. Nose is sweet smoke. Lingering off white head. Smooth and thick at first but then the thinner body shows thru. Good and even awesome but not perfect.
