4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pitch black with a small tan ring of fizz. Smells of licorice and a touch of coffee. Taste is licorice and mint with a bourbon vanilla sweetness and a touch of chocolate. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Schalfly Imperial Stout finishes with a medley of sweeetnesses.
Thanks bro for sharing. Nice bourbon aroma. Ebony color. Smokey sweet up front, bourbon burn in back . Solid imperial stout. kaser (6382) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Black with tan head. Burnt leaves, cocoa, coffee and very boozy. Smooth and good overall. Not sure if I'm rating the right one but the bottle say schlafly imperial stout. ads135 (5031) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Not a bad stout, though a bit too acidic and licoricey. Rich and dark with a nice roasty aroma. cbfobes (2891) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2014
On tap, pours a very dark brown, nearly black with a thin brown head, the aroma is of dark chocolate and fudge, the flavor has a sweet front end with a chocolate finish, thick mouthfeel through out, pretty nice. gregwilsonstl (2665) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 14, 2013

07 & 08 great. Fantastic beer. Not much roast. Lots and lots of caramel. The 2010 was not as good. Mibeersnob (50) - Howell, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Notes from 12-20-2010: You know immediately that this is an Imperial Stout. Rich, dark color. Nice head (poured from tap) that lingered. Although aroma does not seem apparent at first, the pungent oak barrel caramelized sugars come forward with the sweet smell of bourbon. A crisp, clean, taste as it sits in the mouth is followed by the warm, relaxing bourbon going down. Overall, this has to be my all-time favorite beer. drfabulous (8591) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Draught at Shenanigans. Light chocolate and overall creamy taste. Medium body overall. ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Aroma of moderate coffee, milk chocolate and some resin. Appearance is black with bubbly tan head. Flavor actually had a touch of salt with the usual coffee and chocolate notes. Palate is medium, slick and soft. Good, and interesting to boot.
