2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured a nice dark black with a caramel head. Aroma.. not so great, barley, nuts.. not what I expected... maybe even some copper smell in there?? The taste seems "off" to me too for an imperial stout -- more like a strong porter mixed with a bohemian pilsener. I did not like this one all that much.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deeeep black pour, thin but steady toffee head. Nose is espresso, cherries, and a hint of alcohol. Bittersweet. The middle is a spoonful; of coco,of roasted barley, of slightly woody hops, of diamonds...oops a Howlin’ Wolf slip. Finish is velvet smooth malt, with a gentle hop kiss out the back door. A well conceived brewing effort.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pitch black with light brown color. The smell is insanely sweet and a bit roasty. The taste is a tiny bit watery but quite sweet. Still, this is a creamy, but well carbonated stout. Sweet aftertaste with light licorice and roast notes.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours medium brownish creamy-frothy head, not very lasting. Dark mahogany colour with dark caramel hues. Aroma is complex with prune, toasted malt, caramel and some slight bitterness. Taste is similar, adding an acidic start, dry cocoa, black coffe and liquorize sweetness. A very flavourful and balanced imperial stout without ashes notes.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
18.7 ounce bottle, consumed on 2-5-15. Pours a dark brown with a small amount of bubbly, taupe/tan head. Nice shade of head. Chocolate milk, cocoa, and carob scents. English yeast smell. Roasted malt and burnt toast flavors. Lively and crisp in the palate. Medium body. This is a nice beer, but it’s not as good as I remember it being from drinking it years in the past. This is not at all what would be considered an imperial stout if it were first brewed today.
