4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great imperial stout with lots of roast, chocolate malt and what even tastes lightly of marshmallow. Pours thick black with mocha head and lacing. Thick and creamy texture. Finishes medium bitter. Very good stuff with great balance. All of this and cheap. Tap at Churchkey.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft - Roast malts and liquorice. Jet black with a nice rich brown head. Chiciloate and liquorice, with a balanced sweetness and a slight hop taste, which I think is what is giving it the liquorice taste. Very interesting and great if you are a liquorice fan.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appropriately the last beer I had at the Distillery in Savannah. As you would expect pours a dark opaque brown with a dense tan head that persists. Smells of toasty malts, mild grass, and hoppy. Tasted a little acidic on the tongue, more hops than I would have expected, and a general grassiness to the malts. Medium-low carbonation. An alright imperial stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a black color with an average to large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate malt, earthy hop and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate malt bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Light toasted grain for the malt, heavy pine and resin for the hops, light dough and broth for the yeast, with cola, a hint of licorice and a faint mix of spices. Head is small, wispy, light tan with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, slick with lively carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish. Probably the hoppiest Imperial Stout I’ve had. A nice mix of dark malts and vibrant hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. To me this beer was way too hoppy for a stout. Deep, dark color, small head and good lace. Aroma was not much of the traditional stout smells and too much hops. Taste was also too hoppy. If one likes hops they would like this one.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nearly opaque, very dark brown with a short, smooth brown-tan head. Aromas of coffee, faint chocolate, and a bit of kerosene overtones. Thick, mildly coating mouthfeel. Smoky, date, and coffee flavors that outdo the nose.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was really good. Almost black beer with a tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate and something herbal. Tastes of roasted barley, dark chocolate/coffee, cacao nibs, and earthy notes. Mixed with spruce/herbal hops. Interesting. Bittersweet, yet hoppy, finish. More of a black IPA in my opinion. Solid beer.

Another beer I can’t believe I never rated. Pours nearly black with slight red tinge and ample barely tan head. Scent is more fruit than roast with a hint of booze. Flavor is boozy sweet. I will be interested to see how the four I am cellaring progress. Bottle - Kroger - Decatur, Georgia
