Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL, enjoyed at a friends house while watching Anaconda, for some reason. Appearance is moderately thick pitch black with a rich frothy white head. Aroma its very bitter coffee and chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla, very light sweetness. Taste is fantastic. Rich dark chocolate, hazelnut, and vanilla notes, utterly rich coffee profile, more of an espresso richness. Vanilla is pure and doesn’t taste like extract was used, more like vanilla beans were integrated. This brewery does great things with imperial stouts.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black, quick leaving head, cola like carbonation.
Smell fruity coffee and chocolaty stout. Roasty and no bitterness.
Taste a bit sweeter, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and roast.
I feel this drinks more like an imp porter than imp stout. Flavors mesh well together. Fairly simple but well done.

Bottle (batch 74). Black pour with a large, thick dark tan head. Aroma is light coffee, hop bitterness, chocolate roast, and pine. Taste is bitter coffee with hops, darker fruit notes underneath, roast, and vanilla. Velvety smooth mouthfeel. Damn hoppy imperial stout. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pour is cola colored with caramel colored head. Nose is heavy coffee roast, light vanilla and a strange mix of olive and chocolate that doesn’t go well together. Taste is a little better. More balanced, stronger chocolate fudge note with balanced coffee and hint of vanilla. Medium body and gentle carbonation with a linger coffee roast.

Pours pitch black with a brown head and strong aroma of coffee and espresso. Taste is strong as well, lots of heavy coffee and espresso with chocolate and roasted malt and a long, warming finish. Excellent brew with a lot of coffee flavor.

Pretty good, actually. Fresh cup of (average quality) coffee per glass blends well into the base. Solid.
