3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark reddy/brown. Head thinned out very quickly. Sweet with fruit. Chocolate is a stand out. Moderate coffee flavours are fresh and light. Finish is soft and mildly bitter. Lots of carb, lots of fruit. Not as good as the raspberry.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich and chocolatey with some espresso to make you take notice. Pretty much solid black with a frothy tan head that diminished to essentially nothing. Very smooth with a dry, finish. At last tilt of the glass some port-like aromas hit me too. A little thin for an Imperial Stout but a decent example of the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle] Pours a deep, dark black with a thick and lasting tan head that leaves good lacing. Faint roasted coffee aroma with a touch of sweet. Initial malt and sweet taste with an undertone of coffee and a roasty followup. Slightly bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark black in colour. Aroma of chocolate, cherries and with mild coffee roastiness. Flavour was malty, mild coffee, chocolate but light bodied. Finished light with a medium bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured with a thick head which lasted quite awhile. Aroma of cocoa and dark roasted coffee with subtle fruit notes. Body is thin for the style yet smooth. Flavors are good, roasty malt, chocolate but finishing a bit too dry in my opinion. I found the thinner body, drier finish and lack of sweetness uncharacteristic for the style. Not an exceptional Stout but a decent one.

This beer looks so good pouring in a glass, with its jet black color and small brownish head. The taste is just as pleasing, with chocolate and coffee in a thick texture only an Imp. Stout can deliver.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty, sweet aroma, strong sense of caramel. Very dark colour. Flavour matches aroma, but no other elements are added to the flavour. Slightly bitter finish. Overall, very pleasant, but just not complex enough.

Licorice attack! This does not bode well. I'll wait for it to warm. Rough, roasty, thin mouthfeel. Finishes clean. I'm not blown away.
