3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
After the last two I decided I needed something Good. I’m hoping this fits the bill. Sure looks great. Near black pour with a bubbly yet not fizzy tan head. Malty raisin scent, something fruity. Bitter, very bitter start. Like a bite in the tongue followed by a bite in the back of the throat. A bit too much of a bite. Low carbonation. Not at all boozy even though it’s a strong one. That bite faded quick and was replaced by a mellow chocolate aftertaste and slight saltiness? Soy sauce like? Odd, I haven’t been eating anything so I’m pretty sure that’s coming from the beer. This is good, way better than what I had been drinking but I’m not a fan of that bitter bite at the start.

Pours black with beige head that sticks around and leaves lots of lacing. Perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness. Medium almost oily texture gives it a great feel on a tongue. Bit of a coffee and smoky notes, but toned down. Aroma of roast malts. Tranquillity (2336) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2017
Caned. Thick opaque black body, thick and even brown head. The aroma is chocolate, cherry, roasted malt. The taste is cherry and coffee with a long lingering red-wine finish. papat444 (136) - Carignan, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2017
Appearance: Pours a dark brown, borderline black body with a decent if not conservative tan head. Looks good.
Smell: Cocoa, coffee without the bitterness and a little sweet but everything is on the down-low though, even at a warmer temp.
Taste: Some bitter coffee, burnt a little with a small sour twinge. Tastes a little like watery coffee with. Not very imperial.
Mouthfeel: A bit thin & watery in the palate with low carbonation. It is smooth in a way but the beer feels unbalanced somehow.

Straight black pour, lightly tan head. Aroma is sweet, chocolatey, fruity - lots of cherry scent, light orange liqueur. Taste is nice but not really "imperial" in intensity - chocolate, cherry, lactose, earthy notes. A bit dry in the finish. Satisfying, but don’t expect anything earth-shattering.
