3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a deep brown appearance with a nice, dark brown head. Toasty, oaty, light coffee, dark chocolate, roasty, earthy aroma. A bit tangy, lightly boozy, burnt, roasty dark chocolate malty, caramel, vanilla, a touch smoky flavor. Not a huge fan of the flavor, it’s a bit overly bitter, but not bad.

12oz bottle. Looks dark. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee, and some sierra nevada hops. Flavor the same. Average to smooth texture. A good beer, but not the imperial stout.

Black, with a small brief brown head. Smells like coffee, oatmeal, grass, and cocoa. Rich taste, but no complexity. Decent bite. Full bodied and smooth. Nice beer, decent imperial stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle: Pours dark black with a thick brown head and slow but long lasting CO2 release. Aroma of toasted chocolate malts, toasted oats, raisin and plum. Taste is sweet on the front and slightly bitter on the back; some strong alcohol on the finish. Starts smooth but ends a little harsh. Slightly oily on the palate and a little strong on the alcohol. Thin for a big oatmeal stout. Nice offering for a 12 pack varity mix though!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours black with a one finger mocha colored head that reduces to a skiff and collar. Aroma is roasted malt, oats, creamy, but could be more assertive. The taste is so smooth and silky, not really getting any harsh roastedness of the malt, the oats really mellow things out. Chocolate and coffee are there, but smooth, little hops, what are there blends wonderfully, this should be in their regular lineup, great beer. Body is thick, meal in a glass.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz into a pint. I can definately feel the power in both the aroma and the taste, this is a big brew. Dark as night, taste is roasty, dark and bitter chocolate, molasses, and chewy rasin and fig mixture. Head simmers to nothing really, the brew still hovers in front of you daring to be challenged. The abv comes across in the taste, but is welcomed with the expanding malts that shine though. Body is rich and a bit syrupy, but goes down quite elegantly and fluid. Top notch imperial stout.
