Swamp Head Catherine’s Passion is one smooth drink that hides its potency well. Expected dark pour with a tan head. Nice coffee and cocoa aroma. Taste has the same coffee and cocoa notes but with a floral quality -- like drinking a good cup of coffee. Finish velvety smooth. Catherine’s Passion is a top-rated Imp Stout.

I found this to be a pretty amazing imperial stout. Thanks Dchmela!! I got none of the harshness some of the other raters found. Thick black pour with mocha head. Aromas of cream, malted milk, vanilla, chocolate, berries. Thick sweet and creamy. Cocoa powder, milk chocolate, a touch of pepper and ash, vanilla, strawberries. Passion indeed. Excellent.

Bottle from Homer. Pours opaque black with a large dark brown creamy head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, green pepper, some chili pepper, a bit of coffee. Flavor is light sweet, medium plus bitter, roasty, green peppers, a bit of a chili kick, coffee. Fullish body, a bit hot from ABV. Lingering bitterness. Too much green pepper for me, but not bad otherwise.

Bottle from homer 321, thanks man! Apperance is thick motor oil with a nice layer of chocolate head. Aroma is green peppers, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is coffee roast and chocolate syrup, followed by a bitter roasty finish, full bodied, lost of carbonatioin. Pretty solid impy with a nice balance of coffee and chocolate.

This poured a jet black with a tan head. Aroma was fudge, ash, light smoke, and mild coffee. Flavor was mild old coffee and vanilla, fudge and a bit of a harsh ashy finish.
