3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
some maltiness and some nice roast in aroma and flavour, but too much green piney grapefruity PNW hops. quite dry and thin for an imp stout, although not too bad, just not that rich and satisfying, more of a "black IPA" - which is fine if you like that sort of thing, but even then, it’s not that bitter. perhaps it’s not the beer it once was, or perhaps it never really was that good in the first place. why do american brewers like adding hop aroma to stouts instead of using flavourful yeasts? no character - gimme a nigerian guinness any day.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown. Small tan head. Aroma toasty malt and nuts and grass and herbs. Medium full body. Some booze. Flavor up front is unusually hoppy for a stout, pine and hay. Then the sweet caramel and roasted malts appear. Good I guess, found this one a little odd.

NITRO. Served on tap at Victory. Dark black color with a tan head. Dark chocolate coffee aroma. Coffee smokey malt flavor. Medium body. But too much smoke and not enough imperial.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
En sort satan med et lille skum. Kraftig aroma af chokolade, kaffe og sød karamel. Smagen er tør og med masser af espresso, mørk chokolade og bitterhumle. Meget blød og let i munden, samt meget afdæmpet kulsyre.

The aroma is full of chocolate, coffee, dates and other dried fruits. The color is pitch black, as it should be. The taste is full of chocolate, coffee, sweet caramel and some espresso notes are detected. Nice and velvet feel on the tongue. A nice and long bitter finish. Excellent beer!
