3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasty Imperial Stout from Two Brothers. Pours a gorgeous obsidian color with a thick, rich, creamy head that leaves lots of lacing. The aroma is coffee, anise, chocolate and roasted malt. It’s medium bodied and has a medium mouth feel, which is fine by me. Doesn’t have that overly astringent alcohol taste that some Imperials at 8.5% abv can get. I like the flavor profile of this beer. Lots of upfront chocolate and roasted coffee with toast. Almost has a maduro cigar taste and aroma as it warms. Got this at Costco in the Two Brothers variety case. 6 of these along with 3 others. Great value and beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Weak smell for an imperial stout, but what is there is pleasant. Cocoa, vanilla, lactose sweetness and just a little roast. Dense black color with a sizable tan sticky head. Tastes sweet, then roasty, then bitter with some coffee in the aftertaste. Not bad, just not very well balanced. Average palate, overall a slightly above average IS.

On tap @ Radio Maria. Dark brown, Amber highlights. Weak profile overall, blackened malts with coffee and aniseed character, but notably weak and simple.

12 oz single bottle from John’s Grocery. Black appearance with a lingering, lacy tan head. Aroma of chocolate malt, light roast and earthy hops. Similar flavor, rich, moderately sweet and mildly bitter. Medium body with a creamy feel. Fairly balanced and easy to drink overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark with tan head. Roasty and sweet with hints of vanilla, chocolate. Slightly floral hops in finish. Straightforward with an approachable complexity. Drinkable, though dangerously so.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A highly drinkable stout. It's surprising given the ABV. Inoffensive yet complex. Straightforward and well-crafted. Mainstream but that makes it drinkable.

Coco coffee and malt aroma. Dark. Black with a surprisingly large tan head. Taste is a little thin but deep dark malt notes and bitter. Alcohol is a bit strong upfront

Poured from a bottle, nice dark brown color, beige head, nice lacing. Aroma is mostly dark fruit, taste is similar. Overall this is ok at best. It just doesn’t have the complicity of o great Imperial Stout.
