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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Opaque dark brown with small foamy beige head, light mocha aroma, medium carbonation, full body, mocha taste, medium finish with sour coffee aftertaste. Good stout, but the coffee beans sour aftertaste degrades the brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Tall Paul’s (FL).
Pours essentially black with a lght tan head that has good retentino and leaves some lacing on the glass.
The smell is a bit sweet, there’s roasted malt, chocolate, and a hint of caramel and toffee.
Taste: Dark roasted grains. A touch of sour and only a faint bit of dark fruit. Coffee, smoke and dark chocolate in the finish.
Feel: reasonablt smooth; medium-full body.
Overall: a poor example of the style although the high ABV is well hidden.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours black with a dark tan head. Aroma is strong, coffee hinted. Taste is bitter black coffee with roasted barley. This is not a good beer. A bitter backend follows and lingers too long. If you like cold coffee then maybe you’d like this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Antioch Fine Wine. Pours very dark brown with a bit of a beige head. Aroma has roasted malts, light smoke, some licorice and some molasses.Taste is of sweet caramel, licorice, smokey malts and a bit of coffee. Medium bodied, a bit thin for an imperial stout, with some alcohol presence. Finishes somewhat short, and sweetly malty. Shrug? Two Brothers is not a top 5 brewery in CHI, and this is a perfect example. 13.2
