2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at the 2015 Joplin Pints ’n Paws Mac-Fest beerfest. Chocolatey up front; unfortunately then becomes very syrupy in finish and mouthfeel. Heavy and unbalanced. Bad aftertaste. Don’t care for impies like this; like boozy pancake syrup with some chocolate. Awkward and not very pleasant.

Bottle. Thanks to Justin. Nose of coffee, chocolate, and strangely, caramel corn. Thin medium-dark brown color. Mild chocolate, thin dark roast malt, and some lactic notes. Medium body. Nice, moderate flavors, and a bit light for an imperial stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep brown color with a nice tan head and good lacing. Aroma of malt, chocolate, dark fruit with a trace of citrus. Taste of roasted malt, dark fruit, chocolate and bit of vanilla. Mild bitterness and a dry finish. Full body, thick and creamy. Nice balance with no real hint of the 9.1% ABV. Enjoyable beer to relax with.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours an opaque black color with a medium light brown head. The aroma blends roasted malts, milk chocolate, booze and vanilla, and the taste is mildly sweet, mildly boozy, slightly umami, and a touch bitter with a boozy aftertaste reminiscent of light roastiness. The palate fuses an oily texture, medium body, and a soft carbonation with a bite.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is semi-sweet with chocolate, coffee, and burnt malt. The appearance is dark brow with a tan head. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a good beer but nothing outstanding or memorable here.
