3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark dark brown, thin light tan head. Thick fudge nose, with some caramel & nuts...flavors have some sharp roasted malts with equally sharp bittering hops, bitter chocolate, slight black marker, some alcohol..fairly full bodied and fairly bitter too. Not too shabby actually though I think the malt flavors are hard to grasp with that level of bitterness in the way.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours black from bottle with a thin khaki head. The aroma smells of furniture polish and burned malt. Thinner mouthfeel then I was expecting. Fair amount of alcohol on the tongue. Finish has a tad of bitterness which adds something to the beer. Pretty damn appalling!

Fruit, chocolate and roasted malts. Not the best imperial stout out there. A little bit rough around the edges yet not something I would pour down the drain.
