Medium bodied Imp stout that’s roasty and slightly sweet. Easy to 9rink at 9%. I don’t get any of the ginger or lime notes, but solid brew overall.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
not quite black, lots of red edges. the faint aroma I do get is better and ginger. Quite spicy. Cinnamon, honey, clove, ginger, tree bark, roast starts and is overloaded b spice. I do get barrel at the start and finish, certainly whiskey barrel. Surprised by the ABV. it drinks much lighter than the abv suggests.

On tap in North Carolina, deep brown with a thick head. Mild roasted aroma. Medium body with flavors of brown sugar, light coffee, and a little ginger. Interesting.

draft to sampler. wow a nice little nuance to a stout adding a touch of ginger. not my favorite spice but made this one a little different. nice roasty malt nose with hints of sweet and ginger. the flavor was more of the same and it was pretty decent only a small sample but I like how the flavors of the roasted malts and ginger blended with the sweet.

Ginger nose and minimal head. Good lacing. Opaque coffee color. Sweet flavor with ginger hints, palate cleaned up nicely with the hops. Aftertaste lingers a bit.

Pours an opaque dark brown almost black color with khaki colored head. Spice, roasted malt, and some raw cocoa notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied, a little thin for the style. Finishes with spice and roast.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Pours black with a minimal, off-white head. Not much of a nose at all – maybe some malty and roasty notes. Medium to full-bodied with buzzing carbonation. The flavor is roasty and a touch acrid, but mostly just sweet and lightly spicy. Finishes crisp, and then bittersweet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample during the "Inventory Reduction Beer Tasting" on 12/26/2015. The beer pours a brown-black color with a medium tan head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate malt, coffee and spices. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted coffee, ginger, allspice and roast malt. The finish is roasty with a malt and spice aftertaste. Different, above average overall.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Packaged on: 03/04/15. A deep mahogany pour with a smallish mocha head. The aroma features an odd mix of chocolate, tangy limes, ginger, caramel, burnt grains, roasted coffee, molasses, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Lots of gross gingersnap cookies in the mix... Medium-bodied on the way down. The taste starts with plenty of caramel and molasses. Brown sugar and burnt grains in the middle. A little coffee and some dark chocolate finish things off with a bitterness that lingers. Tangy limes, salty soy sauce, and some warming alcohol throughout. Boozy. A disgusting aftertaste of Sprite and gingersnaps. Bleh!
