Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #12. Vermont Brewers Fest, July 2008, sample 4 (draught). Jet black with just a touch of head...nose is initially very sweet, chocolaty, hints of vanilla, eventually a bit of oily leather...very sweet, thick and decadent body, chocolate milk or nougat, with more than a touch of booziness to finish. Those who need their Imperials to be hoppy and finish dry need not apply here; I liked it.

Slubgob (313) - West Hartford, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Bottle into pint glass. Deep coffee color, very modest tan head. Typical stout creamy roast nose, hint of alcohol and prunes. In the mouth very low carbonation. Theres a kind of argument between the roasty malts and the dried stone fruits that just ends in a draw, with neither dominating and the end result being curiously muted. Finish is breif. Unremarkable -- not bad, but neither is it that great.

From a growler obtained at the brewery. The pour is deep black with little to no head. But the server told me it would be low in carbonation. The aroma is of dark malts, some dark fruits, yeast, and sweetness. No chocolate or coffee that I picked up. The body is a little less than medium but it is very smooth. Sweet taste with low bitterness. Alcohol very-well integrated. It would be easy to over indulge.

Bottle shared with the group (6/2011, notes). Pours brown in color with a small off white head with floaties. The aroma had roasted malts, chocolate and some coffee. The flavor had roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, brown sugar and a strange acidity that distracted. A bit thin for an Imperial stout.

Ive been sitting on this for 8 months or so. The aroma is pure chocolate and dark roast coffee. The taste is datk espresso and cocoa rounded out by a healthy dose of hops. For a plain imp stout, this is pretty nice.

AdamChandler (4567) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Dark brown. To black. No head. Smell bit of smoked as caramel malts. Some dark malts but weak. No scent at all. Pretty weak. Taste - some sweet cane syrup. Some bit of cinnamon and barley flakes. Minor bit of hops. Roasted malts. Earthy and a small hint of dark fruits. 50/50 carbonation. Slick mouthfeel. Medium to light body. Lingering smokiness.

Pours a solid dark brown with faint garnet highlights when held to light. Smallish tan head shows decent retention with minimal lace. Smells of coffee and roast with a hint of caramel. Smells nice, but has a dry Irish kind of feel to it. Taste is roasty and coffee with a bit of butterscotch and some mild dark fruits and licorice in the finish. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, moderate level of carbonation with a medium body. This is a fairly tasty beer, but its a stretch to call this an Imperial Stout. Foreign Extra or American stout would have scored much higher.
