4.22/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Looks thick. Opaque black, not even a hint of colour at the edges. Ok head for a high gravity beer. Nice milky coffee colour.

Smell: Coffee and chocolate with some sharp roasted malt aroma and some faint smokiness.

Taste: Slightly sweet dark malts upfront, followed quickly by roasted malt and charred bitterness. Hops are definitely there, but do not play a leading role in the flavors. A bit of rich coffee flavor is evident also. Bittersweet on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Pretty smooth, but definitely full bodied and a bit thick. Perfect for sipping. Warming.

Impressions: Quite good, I love charry tastes in beer and this one certainly has that. Pretty well balanced.

Serving type: bottle

I do love this beer. in fact, formative beer for me. however; ive tried blackout stout, I've tried expedition. to me, those two rate higher, even avery Czar. just not according to BA. still I respect this beer fully, one of the first imp stouts I've had

lot of bitterness, dark bitter chocolate, coffee beans, hops. creamy, bountiful carbonation. it is good, really good.

still, not my favorite! but a beer I'll still always come back to
