3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of anise, dark chocolate, mild roast and coffee. Flavor is smoke, coffee, chocolate, a bit thin. Rich dark chocolate, mild bitterness, very little sweetness. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for an imperial stout, but the carbonation off sets that a bit. Nice roasty finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Binny’s, label looks like it says batch 44, misprinted? Pours black with brown, thin brown head that sticks as a ring and oil slick. Nose is roast and burnt, dark chocolate and molasses. Some earth hop notes and a nuttiness. On tasting, shows a big bitterness witha big hit of caramel and chocolate. Moderately dry and a touch charred. A smoky hint comes through along with a bit of alcohol. Medium full on the palate. Not chewy but far from thin. Rich and dry finish, I really dig this one.
