2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Roast coffee and malt aroma. Pours black with a thick tan head that lingers and leaves abundant lacing. Much thinner/lighter bodied than I expected. Coffee and bitter chocolate. Fairly one dimensional. Not bad but I wouldn't call it Imperial.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 1997 vintage - sampled @ Full Sail Pilsner Room, 12/2004. Very robust milk, bourbon, wood and sweet brown sugar aroma, very smooth mouth feel at first, semi-thick overall... roasty, sweet, with a very sweet finish full of plums, wood, port, and an unmistakable "aged" flavor... this one being just past it’s prime. Oily texture, and creamy.
