3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle (over a year old) in a teku. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of a decent amount of roasted malts, chocolate and caramel, some light notes of coffee, and some light bitterness. Flavor the same, with a lot of roast up front and some sweetness/hints of dark fruits on the finish. Smooth texture. A pretty good imperial stout, but not the most balanced.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate light brown head on it. Nose is very dry and roasty, with just a little bit of sourness cutting through, nearing on a RIS. Taste is a little sweet up front with some chocolate in there, and a lot of roasting throughout. Really quite a pleasant dessert beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Elizabeth St., Bellingham; there is a "best after" date but it can’t be read
Dark brown color, near black, with small head. Nice aroma, roasted malt, some chocolate, some tar, light coffee. Good body strength; strong flavor of roasted malt, with dark caramel, some coffee and pungent hop resins; strong bitterness too.
Imperial Stout by the book, very good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle . Couple months old. Pours without much head and little lace. Aroma is strong dark chocolate and roast with some caramel sweetness and dark fruit. Flavor follows suit with more sugary simple sweetness and bitterness, appropriately balanced for a imp stout. Feel is soft, kinda flat, soapy, sticky and woody end. I don’t like the feel really. Other parts are nice but it feels too thin.
