3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown almost black with a light tan head that was very thin and somewhat soapy. Nose of dark chocolate, dry black patent malt, char and some anise. Flavors show the dark chocolate bigtime with lingering notes of char, roast and some marshmellow-maybe thats more in the body of the brew. big beer, but feels very drinkable and almost sessionable. I have had this many times over the past 10 years and its always consistent. Long finish of chocolate and lite char. solid stuff!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to beastiefan2k. An imperial dry stout, eh? Dark brown (looks black except around the edges when held to the light) with khaki head of moderate duration, some lacing. Aroma brings caramel, roast, chocolate and figs. Taste: nice up front -- creamy, smooth, moderately sweet, followed by a wave of roasty, burnt ... well, just burnt. Light copper as well. Sweetness returns late in the game while I’m trying to figure out what that was in the middle. Surprising amount of dark fruit and molasses. Hard to peg this as a "dry" stout, even imperialized. Enjoyable, though, if a bit confused about its identity.

Bottle. Licorice and soy aroma. Black, dark brown cream. Molassis, fermented fruit sweetness, roast, licorice, umami. Medium body, a bit fizzy. Dry roast finish. Strong flavors,
seems a bit unharmonious.
