4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle via trade. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The nose is roasted malt, toast, salted caramel, dark fruit, coffe grinds, earth and light burnt notes. The taste is rich roasted malt, coffee, toast, light spice, earth, cocoa, salted caramel and dark fruit with a dry, roasty finish. Full body, moderate carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Rich, indulgent and full on flavour. Balance is spot on. Delectable.

On tap at CBC, pours black with a small brown head. Aroma of loads of chocolate, a little roast and some hops. Flavour brings out loads of dark chocolate, a significant hoppiness, and roasted malt. Supremely complex and well-rounded. Quite hoppy for an impie stout. Delicious stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler shared by Caterwaul. Pitch black color. Dark brown head, with a hue of brick to it. Great lace. Nice big roasty malt, big dark chocolate, some bitter roasted coffee. Light dark fruit. Big bitter taste, some sweetness. Really big body, chewy, light carbonation. Kind of dry in the finish. Light sweet bite to it. Body is not as chewy or thick as most imperial stouts, carbonation is a bit strange, too... Drinks like a very full flavored baltic porer. The flavor is huge, I donít really care that the texture doesnít feel typical stout. Very interesting beer. Odd, but I canít help but dig it
