4.65/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours black with no visibility, with a caramel heading,leaves a beautiful caramel lacing. Smells of mollases and roasted coffee beans,and hint's of honey. Taste bready with hint's of chocolate and caramel. A very smooth watery mouthful that goes down very smoothly. So far this has been the best stout I have tasted.

4.2/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit

Appearance: Almost black with little to no tent when put up to the light. Two finger frothy tan head with ton of lacing

Smell: A tart, almost wine-like aroma straight out the fridge, but as it warms it mellows out and I pick up chocolate, oats, toffee, and a hint of roasted malts

Taste: Dark fruits upfront with a chocolate and oat finish. Very slight roasted malt presence

Mouthfeel: Medium body; Smooth as silk with a dry finish

Overall: I had the Taddy Porter and this back to back and find the two very similar, with this having a oat character of course, less dark fruit, and a more pronounced chocolate and toffee character. Both are solid offerings if a little light. However, SS do make some of the smoothest beers I've had. I prefer this over the porter, but ill stick with the imperial stout over both of these for now. Next up is the nut brown ale

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Pitch black in color with tan head. Coffee and chocolate aroma. Taste has many layers, coffee, chocolate, toffee, cream, soy sauce. Nicely carbonated. This is an outstanding stout. Taste and smell are both very complex. I'll definitely pick up a few of these next time i see it.
