3.2/5 rDev -21.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: Nice painted pop top bomber
Appearance: Ultra dark brown viscous beer with dense mocha cap with decent retention
Smell: Not as rich as expected, but fairly nice...there's a touch of burnt malt, dark fruit, and woodsy burn tones
Taste: This is sweet, fairly estery and (too) alcoholic...there are burnt grains and a touch of dark fruit...this is definitely simple for the style...ends abruptly, without the style's characteristic length or complexity
Mouthfeel: BIG beer...slippery viscous alcohol
Conclusion: Not bad, but not a standout Imperial Stout by any means...I've had some great beers from this brewery, this just isn't one of them
Serving type: bottle

4/5 rDev -2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5
Appearance : Dark and Black... Faint ruby hues appearing at the bottom of the glass. Kaki colored head.
Aroma: Dark and foreboding, Really toasted grains and toasted bread. A touch of smoky char with Dark Chocolate in the back. Floral Booze tones all over the ale.
Body: The body like Dragon's Milk was a bit thin hovering within the high medium to low full mouthfeel. soft carbonation was nice in this ale.
Taste: Softer on the dark tones when I would of though, left some hollow points along the way that the bourbon aged version filled nicely. Coffee, Dark Chocolate, Toasted Grains and Char on the palate with a big floral booze all over the place.
Overall: Nice ale, right now I prefer the barrel aged version, but if this had about 2 years of age. A lot would change and this would be a steamer on an ale. Cheers!

4.24/5 rDev +3.9%

I have always liked this brew. Pours a thick black with deep tan head and spider web like lacing. Smells of deep roasted grains, chocolate, some coffee, and more chocolate. Decadent mouthfeel, and velvety smooth. Tastes of sweet dark chocolate up front, coffee and roasted grains on the sides---do I detect some deep roasted barley in there for depth(!?), and medium hop bitterness on the back changing into a cocoa flavor on the aftertaste. Booziness comes through later---have a seat! Very nice. Very luxurious. Just a great imperial stout. CHEERS!

3.58/5 rDev -12.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: black in color, 1/4 inch head, opaque, low carbonation
Smell: dark chocolate, smoke, and roasted malt
Taste: dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and light caramel
Mouthfeel: heavy bodied, low carbonation, sweet and roasty
Overall: An above average rich and heavy imperial stout.. The alcohol is well hidden, but yet I feel like I have had more complex and interesting examples in the style. Not a beer I would pass up, but not one I need to rush to again.
Serving type: on-tap
