3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Notes from old backlog: Dark, near black pour with a fluffy strong lacing khaki head. Quite chocolaty in the nose with a nice barley roast. Light body with a nice mild carbonation. Goes down easy. Simple flavor. Has a great creamy/silky character and is quite chocolaty. Finishes with a hint of salty barley roast. An easy and clean Imperial Stout.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours thick unclear dark roasted coffee with a creamy dark beige head and some nice lacing. Aroma brings sweet Hershey chocolate bar so smooth in the nose. The flavor brings smooth sweet chocolate bar on the tongue lasting long and so pleasing on the palate. Body is creamy but lighter than expected with dry cocoa powder notes.

Sample at Barcade courtesy of Maryanna. Pours pitch black with smaller head and light lacing. Smells like iced coffee and vanilla beans. Flavor is mocha java espresso ice cream and chocolate. Really layered with rich and toasty flavors. Really enjoyable and slightly refreshing for the style.

Lovely looking dark chocolate body and crowned with chocolate cream. Waves of dark chocolate entrance the olfactory nerves. The body is of rich dark chocolate cake with a coffee bean finish. Simply blissful to drink. Outstanding.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Coakley’s in New Cumberland, PA. Served in a 12 oz. Snifter. Pours a deep, dark black with thin tan head that disapates quickly but leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is pure chocolate. Flavor is a great balance. Can’t deny the sweet milk chocolate up front but the finish lingers with a dark chocolate bitterness. Medium to full bodied. Not overly warming despite the 8.1 Abv. Very tasty.
