3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2013 Draft at Khyber Pass. Tulip. Opaque brown pour with a foamy tan head. Fair amount of lace at the start. Malty brew. Feeling vanilla over chocolate here. Toffee. Cinnamon. Pepper. Dark caramel. Slight funky Brett bite. Decent body, but maybe a tad thin for an Imperial. Interesting but not exceptional.

I quite enjoyed this imperial stout. It has a malty, roasted aroma and the palate is satisfying without being too heavy. Itís also not too sweet. Itís not quite as sweet as many imperial stouts, which makes it different but still enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours solid black-brown with big foamy tan-colored head. Aroma is dominated by roasted malt, with hints of coffee and some unidentifiable fruits as well. Taste is mildly sweet a first, followed by a mild bitterness. Getting a bit of hops when drinking. Mouthfeel full, more carbonated that what Iím used to in an Imp Stout. ABV is well-masked. Well-balanced, very drinkable. Not knocking my socks off, but solid and enjoyable.

A solid imperial stout although more bitter and not as fruity as some. Comperable to Ivan the Great by Brau Bros.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is dark fruit, roasted malts, mild vinous notes and coffee. The flavor is coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, roasted malts and a big tartness/acidity into the finish.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours like it should. Black with a dark brown head. In love with the aroma, charred wood, vanilla, and dark fruits. Surprisingly smooth and creamy. The flavor isnít bludgeoning, but what is there is tasty and well balanced. Deep roasted malt, burnt marshmallows, and eventually toffee.
Not the biggest Imperial Stout out there, but quite tasty. Quaffable, to say the least.
