3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle poured into a snifter. Appearance is clear brownish black with a medium sized creamy mocha head, that when reduced left a thin lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, syrup loaf and a hint of smoke and muscovado. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium-full bodied, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Not as smoky as the label suggests, and a bit too thin bodied especially considering the high ABV. Overall this is a tasty Imperial Stout.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours black with a large, thick, dark latte-colored head. Aroma is quite roasty, dark fruit, light earthiness, pine and exotic fruit a tad, some smoke. Some liquorice, a tad salty. Taste is quite a lot of roast, some chocolate, a bit sweet, somewhat sour, quite a bit of smoke too. Roast is strong. Some pine and exotic fruit from the hops. Really delicious and alcohol is completely hidden. Full and well carbonated. One of the better imperial stouts definitely.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly diminished with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted smoked malt, chocolate and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid dark beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours dark brown (opaque) and has mahogany highlights; the head is beige and foamy. The aroma has notes of: charcoal, dark chocolate, and leather. The taste is medium-heavy bitter a very slight sweetness; there are notes of: the aforementioned aroma notes, and dark sweet berries. The palate is medium-light bodied, slightly sticky, and has a long finish. Overall, the body does not compliment the flavour profile, very watery for an imperial stout.
