nice beer as described by the brewer. malty and vinous with spice like licorice and anise, i suppose there is the Earth. Simply a superior Stout in my mind with a frothy and tingly carbonation. Light cocoa influence this is something to pair with at the BBQ or anywhere that like spicy foods will be served. Don’t be surprised if the beer steals the show!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Tiny isn’t all that bad of an impy stout, but it’s not among the best. The appearance is the best quality of this beer, but it lacks in the overall flavor, body and mouthfeel. This stout starts off with a huge amount of awesome potential, with a very dark pour of a black color and huge tan head. The head does not leave much lacing, though. The aroma is quite agressive and forthright, with notes of whiskey, alcohol, oak and hops. The sweetness and alcohol presence of the nose is quite a put-off, though. The aroma is very strong; maybe a little too strong. The mouthfeel of this stout is a little too lively, with a little too much carbonation and activity. The flavors a bit too overpowering, as well. I taste a bit too much whiskey or bourbon on my tongue. The hops are a little too much, as well. There wasn’t much balance in this imperial stout. It was a lot of alcohol and not a whole lot of flavor.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with tan head and little lacing. Aromas of caramels. soy, chocolates, and roastiness. Tastes of sweetness and mild bitterness. Palae is full bodied with some creaminess and stickiness and little carbonation. Finish is a bit alcoholy, long, and a bit sweet. Overall, I like DIPA’s better, bug for it’s style, TINY is very tasty and has a bite. Definitely better as it warms.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent sized brown head of varying sized bubbles that are very fleeting so the head reduces quickly. Lots of grapy vinuous notes in the aroma with some belgian candi sugar, some raisins, a bit of roasted grains and lots of sweet malts. Color is essentially black. Wow, big alcohol presence but melds very well with the malts. Again, lots more vinuous notes, some chocolate, mild bitterness and some blackened toast. Not a real stong flavor for an imperial stout and a bit thin on the body. Finishes roasty and hot. And decent imperial stout.
