3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Discount. Pours black with a tannish head. Very little lacing even when I try. Aroma has cocoa, chocolate liqueur, caramel and a bit of soy. Smells luscious. Gets more and more milk chocolatey through the bottle until it is quite overwhelmingly sweet chocolate. Taste is of roasted malts, chocolate, burnt malts and alcohol. Very bittersweet, and progressively bitter. Quite chocolate and slightly thin, but a solid stout, in a chocolate-strong mode.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled Oct'12. This is the epitome of a totally middle-of-the-road imperial stout. Decent, but nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber to snifter. Looks solid; cola with tan lacing. Smells solid too; roast and malt with some and chocolate. Tastes like it smells with a good (although slightly thin) mouthfeel. Abv is hidden extremely well. Enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from a 22oz bottle. Black color, good light brown head, some lace. Nice dark chocolate, roasty nose. Flavor is like rich chocolate coffee cake, lightly soaked in booze. Lighter body for the 10.2% ABV, but still big, with a nice chewy texture. Good bitter taste. Alcohol is better hidden than in the Double Dragonfly I just tasted before this, there is enough flavor here to balance it out. Very light carbonation, smooth body, more dry finish. Nice chocolatey coffee aftertaste. Tasty imperial stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
poured from 22oz bomb - Nice texture and feel; quite hot; roasted to hell and back. Smooth as a beer weighing in at 10.2 % could be. Damn the thing is hot though. I think I like it.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with a short, dark brown head.
Aroma is boozy, dark fruit.
Taste is creamy chocolate, slightly ashy bitter....and alcohol.
Hoppy-bitter herbal notes.
A little thin despite the ABV.....but still, a good one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours with a deep brown hued body with a small tan head that fades. Aromas are of oatmeal, cereal, leather, spicy, chocolate, raisins, vinous and brown sugar. Smoother roast profile than most. Flavors are of brown sugar, very bitter, leathery. Low vinous, lasting chocolate, warming. Earthy, oatmeal like, some roast. Lasting duration, medium bodied.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle that pours a black color, aromas of roast, light coffee, huge chocolate, and a touch of marshmellow. Flavors are strong dry chocolate, with a touch of coffee, some earth, and a decent amount of hops in the aftertaste. Nice stout overall.
