3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Perfectly black body with a light orangeish brown head. Massive cola is up front with a little bit of milk chocolate. It’s like a chocolate ice cream float with cola. There is also some anise and alcohol to complement the sweetness. The taste was rich with cola and anise. The nice creamy mouthfeel lets some carbonation shine through the body. Any roast notes are a shadow in the background with some woodiness drying it out. There is an ashy finish. As I drank more, I got some salty notes. Overall, this is ok and an interesting shot.

12 ounce single bottle from Total Wine in Jacksonville, Florida. Beer pours a chocolate brown color with a lasting coffee colored head. Aroma is malt, chocolate and some coffee. Taste is coffee, cocoa and roasted malts on the finish. The alcohol is hidden rather well in this beer. This was really good for a night cap.

Pours dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is sweet malty with some dark fruits. Flavor also has more sweet malt but does finish with some roasted coffee flavors. Something is slightly off about this but I cant put my finger on it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark oily brown with a small light brown head. Very sweet almost fruity fudge aroma, The caramel, lightly roasted malts really dominate the smell. Wow, very sweet flavor for an Imperial Stout too. Molasses, chocolate flavors with very minimal roastiness. Pretty tasty. Nice smooth mouthfeel, maybe a little oily.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a thick oily black with a beautiful cinnamon-colored head that hung around for a short while. The aroma was chocolatey with a bit of black coffee as well. Taste was strange/disappointing. There was chocolate mostly with an extremely salty soy sauce type flavor that ruined it for me. A nice dry finish though and not recockulously hopped like some imperial stouts. Decent but ruined by soy sauce : (

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an oily black with a thick, creamy brown head. Nose is typical coffee and chocolate. Flavor is malt, chocolate, sort of a soy sauce taste with saltiness, and alcohol, followed by a dry coffee bitter finish. Mouthfeel is extremely oily and viscous.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dense black with a large dark brown head that lasted through two-thirds of the glass and laced the glass well. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt with lesser amounts of chocolate and coffee. The flavor is similar with roasted malt and lesser amounts of chocolate, coffee, and alcohol. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Full bodied, but just a little rough around the edges with just a bit too much presence from the alcohol. Solid brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crushed with Jakebra. Non-offensive but also boring imperial stout. Not much body, some nice roasty, chocoalty flavor, but really not very impressed.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very rich nose. Heavy. Taste is complex but the body is less than one would expect from both the style and the flavors initially presented. Seems to get slighly more robust as you drink though the glass. Overall a very decent drink.
