3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Nearly black, cola hued, moderate frothy light beige head, little lacing.   Soft roast, some chocolate and carob aspects, some sweet cocoa too.   Seems like an Imperial Milk Stout, or Sweet Stout.   Hop bitterness comes out a bit on the backside, otherwise moderately malty, sweet, with cocoa and carob notes. &nbps Not a big Imperial Stout by any means.   Some of the recent Imperial Stouts I have had are so far out there in terms of body and aging, that this one seems somewhat ordinary.   Does come across as smooth, not too heavy, body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Seems to grow on me more and more, and at $4 for a 22oz bottle, seems very reasonable.   Cocoa, graham cracker, chocolate, roasted malts, and very pale hop bitterness on the exit.   Sweeter than most.   Very respectable, and on the sweeter chocolatey side.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of smooth burnt malt and chocolate. Full bodied. Flavor is chocolate covering a smooth burnt malt backbone. Got some hop to cover the malt. Goes a bit ashy after a bit. Better than a lot of ISs.

Dark brown in color, clear with a thin tan head. Nice chocolate and coffee aroma and flavors. Rich and thick this was a very tasty brew. Lots of richness and thick finish.

solid black, creamy tan head. Aroma of roast malt, ashy, toffee, banana, toasted biscuit, fruit, chocolate. Taste is chocolatey sweet, hop and burnt malt bitter. Yeast is pretty evident and a strong flavor in this Imp Stout, which is a little unusual.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Naked City, pours solid black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and oatmeal. Flavour of metallic-tinged roasted malt, subtle chocolate, roasted malt and toasted bread. Full-bodied, with an above-standard flavour profile for the style. Leaves something to be desired, but well-made and solid.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Should an imperial stout smell like bubblegum? Bottle with black pour thick beige head. lots of lacing. Full aroma, of bubblegum. Big bodied, roast, chocolate and malty songs. Malty finish. Sip it, it’s not bad. But should an imperial stout smell like bubblegum?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft. Pours a dark black with some offwhite head. Smell unfolds a dark roastedness, some chocolate, some hops and known sweetness. Taste reveals dark and milk chocolate, some ripe dark fruit, roasted malts with a medium bitter finish and some lingering sweetness. Overall, I thought this was a very nice but perhaps not as full-bodies as I would of liked.
