2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2013 vintage. Poured from a 22oz bottle into a snifter. Pours a dark brown with one finger of khaki head. Pours thinner than other imperial stouts that have a syrup-like consistency. Smells bland. Taste is similar, bland with a thin mouthfeel. Not impressed, much better imperial stout offerings out there.

This pours a dark brown/black color with a slight brown head. The aroma is slightly robust with a bit of hops as well. The taste is smooth and has reasonably good robust flavors. There are lots of toasted, roasted malts with hints of coffee and toffee. Leaves a slight bitter happy ending!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2012 bottle from Justin. Aroma and flavor of chocolate malt and a load of lightly flavored hops. Not really bitter at all, but there's definitely a massive, bland hop character. Palate is extra clean. Good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012 vintage shared with Adam J. Pours deep black, thin tan head. Taste is real hoppy with roasted malt, licorice, dried tobacco, chocolate, and pine. Hops are old of course. Nice mouthfeel, creamy texture. Alcohol can’t be found. Lightly bitter lingering roasted finish. This brew is good but you have to ask yourself “What am I looking for in a stout?” This is better consumed real fresh rather than cellaring.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Dahlia’s Pour House. It pours opaque black with a small tan head. The nose is roasted malt, big on the liquorice, chocolate milk, earth, dates and figs. The taste is smooth, roasty, toast, coffee, dark chocolate, earth, toffee, salted caramel and liquorice with a dry finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Not massively complex for the style, but it is rather smooth and tasty.
