4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at rozi’s. Pours black as night with thin brown head. Aroma is lactose, chocolate and coffee. Flavor is dryer than expected with lots roast and coffee, finishes like an 80% cacao chocolate bar. A little burnt finish with lots of lingering bitterness. A dryer version probably from the coffee but very nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2016 On Tap at "The Gage", Chicago.
Cor negra com espuma bege escura de baixa formação e média persistência com excelente lacing.
Aroma licoroso, intenso e muito agradável de café, chocolate ao leite, baunilha e leve madeira (barris de uísque)
Sabor inicial de café e chocolate com meio mais doce (geléia de café) e final torrado com leve amargor, mas refrescante; retrogosto intenso de torrado e com dulçor de chocolate.
Corpo sedoso e média carbonatação, sem percepção do álcool; alta drinkability, ainda mais para uma imperial Stout.

Sample at the brewery taproom. Pours black with a medium foamy beige head that diminishes gradually to an outer ring. Patchy lacing on the glass.

(En fût à la source): Richesse et onctuosité des saveurs de haut niveau, rien ne s’échappe de la meute mais l’ensemble est uniformément décadent.
