UPDATED: JUN 9, 2015 It’s dark like motor oil. The chocolate aroma hits you immediately. This brew has a smooth rich chocolatey flavor with a good roasted taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Snifter at 41°. It’s a deep near black brown with good carbonation and a tight tan head. Aroma is roasted malts with a hint of smoke. Body is full with a lightly sharp mouth feel. Flavor is deeply roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. After taste is dry with a mild bitterness. Overall its a good stout but it seems a little light for an Imperial.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draught at Moses Rose’s Bar in San Antonio. Very dark brown/black colour with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malt and coffee. The taste is rather sweet and creamy and has a very strong hint of coffee. Not particularly bitter. A little thin and watery (surprisingly, given the ABV), but fairly drinkable.
