    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    Tasted at the 4th Annual Bistro Barrel Aged Beer Fest on 11/14/2009. This Imperial Stout pours a very cloudy medium black color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is chocolate, cherries and funk. A medium bodied Imperial Stout. The malts are chocolate, cheery, and some funk. The hops are earthy. Nice chocolate flavor, the funkiness dries out the beer at the finish. For some reason the flavors seems to fade as it warms. Love to try this one after its been it a bottle for a year or so. HINT HINT…. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
