3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, some earthy bitterness, the maple and honey are subtle and do add some sweetness, but this presents as another roasty imperial stout, medium body, decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a flight. Pours a deep opaque brown with some amber highlights at the edges and a small khaki head that laces the glass while settling into a ring and a very thin island of film. Notes of dark chocolate, earth, tobacco, pine, and some light maple and honey sweetness. But those are subtle. Medium-full bodied, with a really smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Itís big and balanced...and kind of dull, honestly. Nothing wrong with it, but it doesnít pop like Iíd hoped.

Draft to taster at the Eccentric Cafe. Abv is listed as 8.1%. looks solid; a little transparent for an imperial stout though. Cola with beige lacing. Smells of dark malt and chocolate. Tastes like it smells, only better, with notes of hops, vanilla, and honey. Good on the palate. Enjoyable.
