3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a dark brown, almost black beer with a thin tan coloured head. The aroma is ALL about the coffee. There is some roasted malt and toffee in the air, but the coffee overpowers all of them. The flavour is more of the same. The roasted malt/coffee combination overpowers them all.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 Rich dark colour with thin head. Delivers a lovely caramel aroma with a smooth creamy taste. However, this beer is particularly heavy.

Draft - Bitter chocolate and coffee. Jet black with a thick brown head. Coffee, dark fruit and a nice bitterness that lingers. Medium body, a nice stout.

(can) clear very dark colour with a medium tall brown head; faint aromas of roast, metal, stewed fruit; watery palate; mostly sweet simple flavour with a long light bitter finish, disappointing for an imperial stout

Aroma is slightly fruity with a fairly robust chocolate smell. Flavour is well balanced and one of my favorite stouts. Aroma, alcohol taste, malts, etc. Is just right and not overdone. Well done!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours silky black with a quickly disappearing brown fizz. Aroma is bitter dark chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is astringent booze, roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Pretty run of the mill solid beer but nothing that sets it apart.

can. Poured near black with a thin ring of mocha head. Aroma is rich and roasty. Full mouthfeel, oily texture with tight carbonation. Roasted malty coffeeish flavour, with a bit sourish finish. Definetly a sipper.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL can, sent from wilco (thanks Mike), pours pitch black with a medium tan head with long retention. Aroma of light roasted malt, cocoa powder, a bit of chalk, and a touch of espresso. Flavour of medium roasted malt upfront, bitter cocoa powder, and light espresso. Full-bodied, well-balanced between the cocoa powder bitterness and coffee. Solid impie stout - nothing out of the ordinary, but executed extremely well.

Jet black with tan head. Coffee, dark chocolate and toasted malt aromas dominate this. Medium coffee bitterness and light chocolate/malt sweetness balance out well in here. A very nice, bold flavor. Really enjoyable and easily worth trying again
