Good full flavor, strong but not harsh. Very good chocolate notes, sort of fruity. Would drink again.

750 ml foiled bottle from StefanSD for free beer week. Aroma is tobacco, licorice, vanilla, light roast. Pours black with a large tan head with great retention and lace. Seems pretty average for an impy, but it’s definitely tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle, best before 2 March 2016. Plack, with a big, foamy, brown head. The nose is caramelized sugar, black coffee, bitter chocolate, and a bit of smoke. Sweet up front, with a strong bitterness. Heavy body, syrupy, sticky, and clingy. This is a big, cloying, malt bomb, but the bitterness balances out pretty well.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The more imperial stouts you have, the more you start getting particular. And we’ll you should because there are to many imperial stouts that get a free pass just because they’re big and rich. But this one works for me. Big time. Not too hoppy, not too hot, not too roasted, not too sweet (but sweet enough for me). Just great. (On tap at the Groveland Tap).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Pours dark brown black with a big creamy tan head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet grainy roast chocolate malt with some dark fruit and black licorice.
The flavor is sweet lactic chocolate malt with heavy roast and some dark fruit and black licorice and then a bitter heavy roast finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a decent imperial stout. A little too sweet and roasty for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber (bought in 2013) - pours like motor oil - black, viscous, thick and silky. Thick brown frothy head that thins out but still coats my glass. Good layered aroma of roasting coffee beans, melting chocolate, burnt toast, warm alcohol and dark ripe fruit. A mouthful reveals bitter roasted grain, dark chocolate, molasses, espresso, warm booze and peaty earth. Well made

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle pours oily dark black with a finger of foamy tan head. Nose is roasty bitter cocoa, tar, ash, charred nutty dark chocolate and molasses. Palate is thick, big roasty molasses and dark fruit, ashy roast, some vanilla. Finishes with pretty well balanced bitterness, lingering vanilla and baker’s chocolate. Solid.
