3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured up at the Avenues Proper Publick House out of a 50cl bottle which resulted in a full glass of beer with a nice and dark body that supports a full tan head of foam that leaves behind sheet lacing. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, some spicy anise like black licorice and then a light amount of toffee mixed with dark fruity esters. The taste is rich and roasty with dark roasted malts rolling into chocolate malts and spicy black licorice. It picks up a faint but pleasing degree of sweet dark fruity esters that mingle seamlessly with the dark roastiness into the finish. Nice stuff.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark brown color with a medium frothy tan head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee, chocolate malt aroma. Medium to abundant body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep brown with nice off-white head. Aroma carries a nice mix of hops and roastiness. Excellent blend of roast body and highly hopped character. It's a bit like a black IPA, reminiscent of Victory Storm King.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taste from a 500ml bottle, big thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Black color, with a thin ring of khaki head. Dots and bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of chewy, lighter carbonation, lightly slick. Good dark chocolate, toasty aromas, biscuit, moderate roast, hint of coffee, hint of oxidization. Touch of smoke. Moderate-plus bitter taste, moderate sweet. Nice, enjoyable imperial stout. Hides the alcohol well.
