3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Solid and unpretentious imperial stout. Black and a little thin in head and body. Medium bitterness - not bad for a stout - and plenty of sugary fruit, chocolate leaving a sweet aftertaste. Potent.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours inky black with half-finger of brown foam, almost as viscous as Ten Fidy. Promising start! Aroma is surprisingly mellow - just mild toasted malt and a faint nutty-sweet. Taste is amazing, beginning with a blast of roast, semisweet in the middle, never harsh or over-bitter. Mouthfeel is medium, much lighter than expected. Finishes a slight bitter begging for another sip. This stuff has danger written all over it. 2nd favorite by only a slight margin.
