All you want in a imperial stout. Low carbonation, deep flavors that evolve in each sip and as it warms, oily but present mouthfeel and warm lingering aftertaste. Mmmm.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co. First Birthday Party, London - huge thanks to Kenny for sharing this gem! Pours black with a medium, beige-brown head. Nose holds some strong booze, roasty malts, dark fruits, chocolate. Huge sweet flavor, lots of sugary chocolate, light roast, some ripe dark fruits, raisins. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Super sweet finish, chocolate cake, moderate roast, light earth, major dark chocolate. Sweet, and it’s an absolute sipper. Nice.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a nice thick tan head that collars around the glass. Roasty, Surly Darkness liek aroma. Molassess. Heavy mouthfeel. Rich, dark roast, molasses, some booze, and hints of vanilla. Actually, this is pretty tasty and I liked it more than I thought I would.

22oz bottle pours an opaque black with some creamy, beige head. Nose of licorice, a little rubber, burnt toast, chocolate. Flavor is sweet, licorice, cola, malt, some chocolate, caramel, toast, coffee grounds. Full, toasty finish. More coffee than I expected.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle, in trade from McGrupp - thanks! Pours opaque black with a medium brown head that dissipates reasonably quickly and leaves some lacing. Aroma is dark roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and a touch of citrus. Flavor is lightly sweet, medium bitter, and a bit astringent, but in a good way. Full bodied with a silky finish and prickly carbonation feeling. ABV well masked other than a warming finish. This is a rich, thick wonderful imperial stout with a complex flavor. Not too sweet, not too bitter, hits all the notes perfectly for me. This blend may actually be better than any of its components. I loved it.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle, thanks bytemesis! Very dark brown, almost black, nice amount of head, medium retention, not much lacing. Molasses, dry fruits, chocolate, some alcohol. Very similar flavor profile, a bit of nuttiness, coffee bitterness in the mid palate and finish. Bitterness lingers for awhile. Alcohol is well hidden. The various components come through during the tasting. Extremely well balanced, excellent stout.

Great stuff here. I think it is better then each of the beers that comprises it except for the weasel. Rich nutty roasty and chocolate. Alcohol is non existent. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. NICE

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour thanks Phil. Black pour with tan head. Aromas from each beer fight for dominance, coffee, dark malts and sweet tones are present. Flavor is mellower than the aroma but still has an ABV bite in the end. Flavor is a combination of imperial stout traits, possibly not as good as any single brew, but a nice blend.
