3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A- Cocoa, roasty, coffee, rich, alcohol.
A- Black color, black liquid, brown head.
T- Cocoa, chocolate, coffee, roasty, alcohol, robust, malty.
P- Medium full body, average texture, average carbonation, roasty finish.
O- Good and not overpowering. I’m surprised that it’s only 7% for an Imperial Stout yet you can still taste the alcohol in it. While it’s a solid stout, it’s not really more than average.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Pitch black pour, thin dissipating tan head. Raisiny roasted malt aroma - licorice too. Taste is very sharp/metallic with roasted malt in background. Palate seems too light for this style. Not that great.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From Craftissimo. Pitch black opaque with dark tan small bubbly head. Smells extremely raisiny, dried fruit, burnt almost ashy malt, a bit sour. Not a fan of such a cloyingly raisin aroma. Tastes less raisin than the smell and balanced by more bitterness. Quite acidic/sour. Body is medium and frothy. Has a lot of Belgian flavours. Too much raisin and sharpness for me.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: 7/10. Toasty with notes of raisin and rum, and the hops give it a particularly citrus-resin hint. -- Appearance: 5/10. Nice dark beer with a thin brown head. Just what I like my stouts to look like. -- Taste: 8/10. Bready and sweet, but surprisingly dry for an Imperial stout. Notes of cocoa and chocolate on the finish, with that appealing rum-raisin-ey sweetness at the beginning. -- Palate: 5/5. Gently astringent, fizzy on the tongue, light carbonation, aftertaste is a gentle warming coffee-chocolate in the back of the throat. Comes on nice and leaves just as pleasantly. -- Overall: 18/20. It’s not quite got the whomp that I expect from something calling itself an Imperial Stout, and I was hoping for a little more intense sweetness and flavors from this beer, but it’s still a champ. Samuel Smith excels at making stout, and this is a great example.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Stout with an aroma of super roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, some dark fruit. Taste is medium sweet, with coffee, caramel, ash and some alcohol. Moderate bitter finish with a sourish aftertaste. I drank this one too cold, so maybe i should re-evaluate this. Anyway, good one!
