4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pitch black color, small tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and wood. Taste is just too great. Wonderful coffee, even more cocoa, a liquid 99% of cocoa chocolate. Extremely long and extremely cocoa bitter finish, just delightful. Full body, soft carbonation, creamy texture. I’m in love!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Aroma is sweet and dry black malt with some coffee roast. Appearance is black with a tan head. Taste is coffee off the bat that leads into sweetness with hint of dark roast that takes over after the sweetness is gone. The roast flavor is not overpowering like most stouts. Very well done beer. Palate is dark with an almost creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this is the best coffee stout I can ever remember trying. Buy it if you see it.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black color with milk coffee colored foam. The smell is dominated by more coffee and a little chocolate afterwards. The taste is super smooth, foamy carbonated, has coffee, chocolate and caramel and basically keep screaming "I’m the imperial stout benchmark". Dry and satisfying aftertaste that rounds up the beer. I don’t like coffee, but this is a pretty great beer, even though I had coffee heavy stouts that I liked more.

Pours a black beer with a big beige head.
Smells of coffee, chocolate, black malts.
Tastes malt bitter, lactose, with a sweet hint from the cassonade sugar.
Mouthfeel is big, alcoholic.
Aftertaste is malty bitter and finishes with a sweet touch.
Great beer for big stout lovers!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black, thin but solid beige head, flavors of dark chocolate, black currant, roasted bread, thick taste of chocolate malts but with a touch of freshness given by the hops, bitter finish. Very good beer, although the alcohol taste is not as well masked as I’d have liked it to be. Pairs perfectly with dark chocolate 85% cocoa!
