3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light fruit aroma and medium palate. Might need longer in bottle. A little underwhelming.
Leave your pretensions at the door.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Poured a dark reddish-brown color with a thin tan top that lasted throughout. Faint taste of dark fruit, chocolate, sweet and roasted malts, not much oak taste unfortunately. Low-medium carb, medium-thick body.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle September 28, 2013 at ABR. This was interesting, like a stout up front and then a belgian finish. Fruity, tart, oak and chocolate. This and the pumpkin are starting to change my opinion of BBC.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a corked 750ml brown bottle. Dark brown pour, decent looking head. Nose has cola, chocolate and toffee. Taste has cocoa and chocolate, brown sugar and dark bread. Dryish end with some chocolate notes. Lots of Belgian notes here, does’t work as an Imperial stout. Overall an ok brew.

Hints of chocolate and coffee. A bit of that distinctly Belgian finish. Not my favorite....too sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Vintage 2012 - Brown sugar and dark fruits. Cloudy jet brown with a thin brown head. Not an imperial stout this is a Belgian strong. A great Belgian but an imperial stout this isn’t. Horribly miss labeled but good as a Belgian.

It all works. Raisin, date and oak notes. Musty aroma. Kandi Sugar all over the place. Works well with beef, not sushi. NIce!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013-09-01. Very dark brown body with a large creamy head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity with a lightly vinous quality to it. 7+ Flavour is similarly fruity, sweet up front then a bit sour and tangy. Whispers of sweet chocolate touches. Very smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Enjoyable. Bottle shared by a friend at board games night. Thanks Dave!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Deep sanguine body, thick beige head. Lots of dark fruit and red grape in the marshmallowy, sweet nose. The body reminds me more of a mulled cider, with lots of apple and spice. Strange; OK.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark red pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of dark fruit, toffee and cocoa. The flavor has some cocoa notes as well as some light roasted malt, Belgian yeast and dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
