4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Footbalm. Pours black, with a nice brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, molasses, dark fruit, caramel, and chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, caramel, dark fruit, and molasses, with smaller amounts of coffee and chocolate. Medium body, wish it were a little heavier. Glad Utah has joined the imperial stout arena. This one is certainly a winner, and I hope they make a barrel aged version of this.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home, out of my Maudite glass. Pours a moderately viscous opaque black; 1-finger tan head, really nice lacing. Nose is creamy malt, some oats?, some tar and some sweet instant coffee/mocha notes. Not the most expressive nose. Flavours of tar, oak, toffee, ashy burnt cracker, tarry black licorice, dark fruit, some nice black chocolate (like those 90% cacao stuff) notes, but chocolate without sweetness. Rally dry, really ashy, very good. Nose is a weakness on this brew, however.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Typical of the Belgian Imperial style in that everything is soft and subtle,you have to have a fresh clean palate to appreciate this. Aroma soft chocolate cake with molassas frosting, some vanilla in there,a little zing of some dark fruit,someone else said cinnimon, flavor is much the same ,smooth as can be,some roastedness ,nicely done ,but you have to work to hard to get all the enjoyment

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by Phatdog1 @ RBNEG. Pours black as a moonless night in the country with a thin beige ring. Aroma is full of dark malt, bakers chocolate and molasses. Flavor contains the aforementioned flavors as well a hint of vanilla bean. Wants to be sweet, but gets dragged to the dark side by the roasted malt and molasses. Thick heavy bodied with a sticky palate. This was terrific and I bet it would age incredibly well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is black with a thin tan head. Aroma is very sweet and malty with notes of molasses, smoke, and licorice. Flavor is a bit more subtle with the licorice and roasted malts coming through stronger. Some oak and dark fruits in the background. A bit ashy/smokey as well.

Bottle. Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is dark fruit and bourbon. Taste starts with dark fruit and molasses, fading to chocolate and roasted malt. Palate is thick and sticky. This is a big one but it's got the flavor to back it up.
