Aroma: oak, vanilla, chocolate, roastiness. Appearance: thick dark black/brown, tan head disspates quickly to ring. Taste: nice roast bitterness, coffee, rich but not overly sweet. Palate: soft carb, thick/slick, but not sticky, full-bodied. Nice lasting finish. Overall: solid imperial stout. I like what silver city does.

A nice fruity barleywine. Pours a bright red with a thick tan head. Smells of bright fruit and malts. Taste is creamy and very smooth, with strawberry, cherry and a watermelon jolly rancher finish. Had in the bottle.

Pours a rich deep ebony color with a short lived dark brown head. It has a mild aroma of coffee. It has a roasted flavor with a little bite but remains very drinkable. This one could be dangerous. But hey danger is my middle name. Love it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate brown head on there. Nose is roasty and a bit sour like with a bit of licorice. Taste is a bit sweet and a little roasty, but has a bitter finish. I like it, as I like the style, but it’s nothing all that special.

Draft at Uber, Seattle. Chocolatey brown. Smoky. Clean tasty flavor. Balanced for an imp stout, roasty. Not a standout but a real solid drinker

Bottle... Pitch black pour with a small, brief head. The nose is a rich fudge-bomb - simple, but very nice. Full-bodied and chewy with modest carbonation. The flavor is roasty, burnt black malt with some caramel malt sweetness. Chocolaty, roasty finish. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (06/2013): Very dark brown in color with a decent brown head. Sort of fizzy and fades out quick, leaving behind a thin beige ring. Nose is heavy in roast, but sweet. Molasses, anise, and burnt sugars come to mind. Translates well into the taste with a bit more emphasis on the sweet side than on the roast. Has some dark fruits and a light floral hop presence that really helps the finish from being noticeably cloying. Good stuff, a traditional ‘meat and potatoes’ example of the American RIS.

Bottle. This is a pretty basic impy without much going for it beyond the usual.

What an imperial stout should aspire to. Excellent grain bill, tons of chocolate and coffee undertones. Hop bit is there and outstanding. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pitch black in appearance with a cap of mocha foam. Aroma is a blend of dark chocolate, brown sugar and espresso. The taste starts out strong on the roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate along with some coffee and caramel to round it out. Mouthfeel is moderately thick and creamy with a slightly charred, alcohol-warming finish. Smooth and flavorful for the most part.
