3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Really nice Imperial Stout, but one that doesn’t truly deliver on the aroma. I found that the aroma consisted of the traditional notes from a large stout; chocolate, coffee, etc., but also nice hoppy character almost like a black IPA. The taste however doesn’t really come through, its still a nice stout that went very well with the steak and salmon dish I paired it with.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a dark brown, almost black with a very thick khaki head that stays the entire time. the aroma is dark roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, and some faint hops. the taste is dark chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, some pine hop presence, and quite a bit warming with the alcohol.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is velvety smooth with rich roasted malts and nice bitter dark chocolate. A little hops to finish it out. One of the better "cheaper" options to the imperial stouts. Underrated!

4 pack. Thick, rich and roasty, more dark chocolate than coffee. Some sweetness, few hops (which is fine; the roast provides the balance). Long aftertaste. Very good and affordable to boot.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice hoppy imperial stout. Dark black pour with billowing tan head. Coffee, sugar, and hops in the nose. Taste has a nice bitterness balanced by big hops, brown sugar, and a slight tart flavor. Medium bodied for an impy. Good stuff.

Black pour with a huge khaki head. Aroma of char, brown sigar, hops, black coffee. Surprisingly hoppy, with loads of roast, toast, black coffee. Very dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours almost black with a rich, lasting head. Strong coffee, brown sugar, and toasted malt. Traditional stout flavor leads but the hop finish comes on strong for a much more tart finish than a traditional stout. The style is growing on me but it’s still not a go to stout for me.
