4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle into a snifter. Pours a deep brown with a frothy head. Smell has a sweet toffee note with some chocolate and coffee hints. The body is full and the taste is very good. It had a sweet taste with vanilla and coffee hints. What I liked about this beer is that it had a great imperial stout taste without the high alcohol taste and impact that often accompanies this style.

From a bottle. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Tastes like bitter coffee, burnt toast, with some strong, tangy yeast flavor. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like a nutty, roasted coffee.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours nearly black with a thin heat that quickly dissipates.No real aroma to speak of. Flavor is initially sweet (but not too sweet) with a rich toasted malt backbone. Hints of black licorice, very dark chocolate, and burnt toast. Finish is reasonably dry. Not terribly complex but what’s there is quite good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 7-31-2010 - This bottled beer has a large creamy, smooth tan head that mostly diminishes, opaque body, suspended carbonation, and one ring of lacing. This beer has a roasted malt, chocolate. The palate is very creamy, watery and thin. Overall, this is a quaffable stout, but for the style it has a thin texture.
