3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz. Pours a dark brown color with a light tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is of roasted malts. Flavor is of caramel, malts, coffee beans and sweet toffee. Was not impressed with this one for a imperial stout.

bomber. solid black in color with ruby edges. head is light tan, thin and short lived. strong nose of plums, figs, dark chocolate and coffee. nice cola and caramel tones. creamy chocolatae texture is a tad thin for me.mildly robust finish. this tastes a little faded, my specimen was roughly a year old, it seems to have lost some intensity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with ruby highlights and a small but lasting tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of licorice and roasted malt. Taste is coffee, licorice, and roasted malt. Medium mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness. A little thin for an Imperial Stout but still very good.

very good, but for a high quality stout, it does feel a little thin. their a great aroma of dark malts, dark fruits and mild hops. look and taste lac, the quality that you make this a super high quality stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is chocolaty, coffee like, with malt toasted darkly. The appearance is dark brown with a tan head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. I really like this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma of some fruit and a little bit of smoked malt. The mouthfeel is a little more carbonated than it should be with a cola like aspect to it. The roasted malt lingers a bit in this one. Below average for the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2009 22 ounce bottle in pint glass. Deep dark brown but not quite black with lasting tan ring and some lace. Mild aroma with some hop, some chocolate, and very slight alcohol. Burnt coffee and ripe plum flavor with mild hop finish. Medium body and carbonation. Not very impressive. lacks fullness and richness of the best imperial stouts.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2008 Some chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Pours brown, not at all that dark for an imperial stout. It was roasty and chocolatey, very light and dangerously easy to drink for an imperial stout. not bad, but if i want an imperial stout, i’ll go for old rasputin or yeti!
