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.

500ml bottle form the LCBO. Pours a deep black with a tiny dark beuge head. Nose is chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and cola. Smoke really comes out in the taste with bitter coffee and some sweet plum. Mouth is quite slick but somewhat thin for a stout with average carbonation. Nice long bitter finish.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a rich deep burnt umber with two fingers of thick khaki foam. The nose is dark and complex; cocoa, burnt brownie, bit of spent coffee grounds and pine. The palate follows the nose with huge roasted chocolate, creamy coffee, touch of dark herbal fruit that rides into a long bitter finish. The mouthfeel is silky and smooth on the front end with a bit of bubble scrub midpalate that opens up the bitter qualities. Huge Flavor with tremendous layers ! Damn.
