2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a nice dark color with a tan foamy head that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is almost fizzy with some coffee and roasted notes. Flavor is average with some roasted malt, coffee, chocolate notes and finishes with a smooth bitterness. Mouthfeel is light carbonation is average. Overall a decent beer which I probably would not buy again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap: deep body, basically completely black with a thin layer of khaki foam that resides on top. Aroma contains roasted malt, cocoa dust, faint oily coffee beans, a mild back-end anise, & a decent amount of char from front to back... Certainly smells like a roasty imperial stout. Taste is bitter, bitter, bitter! Lots of bittering hops up front; leafy, sharp & working with the intense roast to make things even more bitter. Cocoa & coffee beans, unsweet with oil, light anise, & another dusting of bitter roast in the finish. Aftertaste contains some astringency, expected at this point. A little time opens up some dark fruits in the aftertaste, adding some much needed balance. Good stout, but would be tough to drink in quantity.

Sample at Suds on the Shore festival. Dark pour with lots of roasted coffee and chocolate in the aroma and taste. Enough hops to make it interesting.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
7/3/13. 12oz bottle thanks to breau. Black pour with a huge tan head that fizzes away fast. Some dark fruits, coffee, and chocolate in the aroma. Surprisingly light flavor with some coffee, chocolate, and dark fruits. Thin body and SUPER overcarbonated. Iím not sure if just overcarbed or a little infected. Not great either way.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark beer with only the barest of a slick of brown bubbles for a head. Nose of molasses and chocolate. This has the oily mouthfeel that a good Impy stout should have, if not the thick body. Molasses sweetness with toffee, chocolate, ripe pit fruit, toasted grains and a very present grass hop tone. This is a solid stout.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a medium sized fizzy head that quickly fades. Aroma is sour fruit and black licorice. Taste is the same. Very sweet at first and then incredibly sour in the finish. Either this is an infection or a really poorly brewed beer. Iíll buy another one in a few months that hopefully will taste different.
