3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at BJís in Frederick, MD; served in a tulip glass. Very dark brown color with dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste adds notes of light coffee, sugar, caramel and some fruity esters. Medium-heavy body, low carbonation, dry, semi-creamy with slight bitter roast finish. For a RIS somewhat thin and sweet, overall decent dessert beer that night.

Tap at Charlottesville location. This is an imperial stout? Pours not quite black - definitely can see through it. No smell. Taste is... somewhat unpleasant. Liquor, some chocolate, some coffee. A little sweet.

On tap @ BJís Restaurant & Brewhouse. Pours a dark brown with a thick creamy tan head. Thick and creamy body. Lightly bitter malt flavor. Nothing special. Not that enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On nitro at BJís in Covina. Thanks work. The pour is a typical nitro pour but as it recedes it gets light and more of a ruby tinted dark brown. Thick khaki colored head and good lace. The aroma is heavy on the malt. There is a light sweetness to it and a bit of metallic to take it out. There is a decent amount of alcohol here. The flavor is not that great. There is a bright alcohol up front l followed by a bitter roast and a lingeringly sweet chocolate malt. Itís definitely not really what I was hoping for. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a light carbonation and a lingeringly metallic chocolate aftertaste. This could be a lot better.

Very dark with a nitro tan head. Creamy and full, char and roasted malt, a good bit of cocoa, and some coffee. Fairly heavy body, one to drink slowly.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft in a flight at BJís in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. Probably a lot better than the low ratings indicate, and was really pretty good, especiallypaired with the All Night Burger.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft in a flight at BJís-Florence. Nitro. Pours a cloudy brown color with a cascading beige head. Light in color for the style. A soft, frothy cap of head lasts. Notes of nuts, chocolate, soap, chocolate milk powder, and residual sugars. Medium-bodied, with medium soft carbonation and a gritty, sweet, mildly bitter mouthfeel. Tastes like a first attempt at an imperial stout with a homebrew extract kit. Odd.

Draught at the restaurant in Sunvalley shopping mall. Long lasting grey brown head. Very dark color. Dry malty aroma with chocolate and boiled vegetables. Sweet chocolate taste but lacks caramell taste. Small body for a 8.5 % important stout. Small to medium bitterness.

Sampled on draft at the Pittsburgh location this beer poured a black color with a large creamy beige head that lingered and left excellent lacing. The aroma was toasty malts, vanilla, malted milk, coffee and cocoa. The flavor was vanilla, coffee, cocoa, toasty malts, malted milk and a mild bitterness. Long finish. Moderately full bodied and creamy. Quite nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at BJís Dublin Ohio, US. Very dark brown almost black with a tanned head. Nice aroma of coffee, roasted malt and some sweet hints of something which I cannot define. In the flavour it became obvious that the sweetness I discovered in the nose is sweet dried fruits and I suspect it also to come from the yeast. It is a stout but has relations with a barley wine with a bitter twist. Special beer Indeed
