look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep black body. Small khaki head. Settles to a medium collar and some surface wisping.

Smell - Pretty intense. Coffee. Burnt malts. Soy sauce. Raisins. Dark chocolate. The whole spectrum of imperial stout aromas.

Taste - Slightly ashy and burnt up front. Coffee malt. Kinda sweet. Raisins in the back end, maybe from a bit of oxidation.

Mouthfeel - Intense. A little hot and boozy. Medium carbonation. Medium heavy body.

Overall - Slow sipper of a beer. But interesting.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: black with a coffee foam head.

S: smoke, bitterness, coffee.

T: sweet chocolate, roasty malts, coffee beans, milk chocolate, cream, nice hop character. I think this one is aged, as I'm at the anniversary party at real ale and everything seems to be aged. Not sure though.

M: heavy like a hammer and velvety.

O: a good brew. I've had a few already and am a bit tired, but this beer seems well put together.

Serving type: on-tap

Rich and fruity aroma, with a similar but stronger flavor.
Lingering aftertaste. Very good flavor balance including bitter/sweet.
