2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft sample. Dirty dish rag / mold aroma covering whatever roast, dark malt and hop character that’s in there. Prickly acids and dirty solvent to go with your roast, cocoa, coffee core. Watery, thin finish. Should have scrolled past.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black colour with a beige head. Moderate sweet aroma with coffee and roasted malt. Mild moderate sweet chocolate, coffee and raosted malt flavour. If this was a normal stout. I would have said. Well done. Misses some power to be called an Imperial Stout. Anyway an ok beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At brewpub: Pours a black with beige head. Aroma is slightly roasty. It has a velvety mouthfeel. There be some small roasted malts. Some sugar be there aussi. It has no hops. I thought this was 4-5% alcohol (Judging by taste), so I was surprised to find out I was drinking an Imperial Stout when I checked the tap from whence it came. There is nothing bad here, but alas, there is not enough good.
