3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark, opaque pour. Dark tan head. Sweet, creamy, chocolate, caramel, earthy, malty taste. Silky smooth palate feel. Little bitterness. Maybe a bit sweet for my taste, but a nice brew.
Great! Brewed with chocolate from Colorado’s very own Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Inc., this Imperial Chocolate Cream Stout is full of rich, toasted chocolate notes with hints of dark fruit. 72 Imperial will take you where you need to go. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

DATE: February 3, 2017... OCCASION: celebrating what the doctors term a successful surgery for Mom... GLASSWARE: Guinness pint... dark black body as expected, with a half-finger of creamy brown head sitting confidently atop... cocoa bean, coffee bean, vanilla, band aid (in the vein of Islay scotch), cookie dough and bourbonesque suggestions.... dry at the start, mild through the mouth, and full at the finish... lingers with lactic sweetness... cola qualities make for an interesting palate... chocolate milk, slightly briny, vanilla and cookie dough--a dessertif for certain, with an alcoholic heaviness that belies its 7.2% ABV... worth the selection in my Wegman’s winter pick six, flavorful and drinkable...

Pours wimpily, black with almost no head. Aroma is raisin, smoke, licorice, cocoa. Medium-full bodied, kinda creamy with a slight bite. Oak, whiskey, smoke, plum... Had some qualities, nothing really outstanding though. Just didn’t stand out. SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 25, 2016

From a bomber. Pours an inky black and makes a tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of roasted malt, molasses, and cocoa. Tastes of booze, chocolate, blueberry, and plum.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy brown head. The nose is sweet chocolate with a little lactose and roast. The flavor is quite sweet with vanilla and lactose with lots of milk chocolate and roastiness. Medium bodied and slightly sticky with soft carbonation and a long lingering sweet finish. Enjoyable enough, but the sweetness does get to be a bit much by the end of the bottle. djd07 (14519) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is raisin, roast, chocolate. Medium mouth, boozy, bready malt, light roast, good. CJack (52) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle pour, dark chocolate brown with decent tan head. Very light aroma, mild taste is sweet with some roasted malt bitterness. Not a lot going on, overall slightly disappointing :/
