4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a growler into a pint glass. Aromas of cocoa nibs, coffee, and roasted malt. The color is an opaque black with a thin tan head. The taste is a sweetness akin to dark chocolate, with enough bitterness to keep it from becoming syrupy. Itís very well-balanced for such a chocolatey stout. It has a full body and a taste that lingers the way that melted chocolate does, with a perfectly soft carbonation thatís so critical for stouts. This is a very, very good stout and Iíd recommend it highly.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tastes very resinous- i.e. woody, black licorice, heavy malts. Has faint traces of walnut, oats, and whispers of bakerís cocoa and roasted coffee. Very impressive for a Stout. Best enjoyed in a chilled chalice glass (different than the Belgian Tulip glass). Toffee or Kettlecorn make good food pairings

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- Roasty, chocolate syrup.
A- Black color, black liquid, brown head.
T- Bitter, roasty, cocoa.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, dry bitter finish.
O- Looks and smells good but the flavor is something weird. I canít quite but a finger on it but itís an odd bitterness. Canít imagine this is normal because if so, itís way overrated.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
2nd best imperial stout i ve tasted.
This is one special beer Its on the sweet side of imperial stouts. Chocolate and caramel are noticed on the first sip. After that the alcohol shows up and from there on it unleashes all the ingredients.
For this kind of beer this one goes down very easy
