3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle, aged roughly 6-months) Sweet aroma of fresh coffee and rich malts. Pours an oily black complexion with dissipating brown head. The flavor adds some bitter coffee and boozy alcohol over the rich stout. Decent palate. A nice cool weather warmer but not the best from this brewer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. The beer is black with a thin dark brown head. Some lacing. The head dissipates to a ring of bubbles pretty quickly. The aroma is rich and chocolatey with a bunch of roasty coffee on top. Mapley caramel sweetness. Light barrel booziness. Some vanilla and bourbony molasses. Milk chocolate. Nice, sweet, full taste. Lots of milk chocolate with a gentle but dark roast flavor. Finish is roast and syrup. Very rich. I could stand to have the roast toned down a bit but it’s still very nice. Full, chewy feel. Creamy. Strong roast bitterness. Very enjoyable stout.

Drank this beer pour from a bottle into a pint glass. This beer has a nice strong flavor, without being too boozy. Nice smooth bitterness from the coffee, a well done Imperial Stout!

Tasted from bottle. Pours black with khaki head. Aroma is big chocolate and some coffee with some bourbon. Flavors similar to aroma with some caramel and toffee. I do get a bit of an alcohol burn on the finish. Overall above average BA stout but not top tier.
