Kansas

3.78/5  rDev -14.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

Thanks to EmperorStan for this one; a new addition to the lineup available in KS. Poured into a snifter and paired with some 70% cacao Lindt.

A: Ridiculously beautiful. Pours an opaque near-black, with a medium dark tan head which leaves exemplary lacing and a perfect little crown. Streams of carbonation continue to be visible, and they constantly rise up to maintain the remainder of the head. Really, this is pretty much a spot-on example of the archetypal stout of my dreams.

S: COFFEE. Pretty bitter coffee, actually. I'm also picking up some juicy peach as well as some very dark chocolate (although maybe that's just my pairing). There's also a bit of a scent which reminds me of rotting bio-waste... I suppose it qualifies its strange name!

T: Again, COFFEE. It's overpowering, really; I can still distinguish the other tastes that were also present in the nose, but the bitterness of the coffee is so omnipresent that it makes the beer kind of unbalanced. The bitterness recedes to make way for a more candy-sugary sweetness as the beer warms, but the coffee taste is still just overwhelming.

M: Pleasantly creamy, yet with a bitter aftertaste. Great body; very substantial and hearty.

D: I want to like this beer, I really do, but the bitterness is just too much. I'm a big fan of stouts, but I'm also a big fan of balance. It's kind of a struggle for me to get through this, but its redeeming qualities make the drinking experience enjoyable if not entirely easy.

4.35/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Jet black in color with a faint wisp of khaki colored head surrounding the edge of the glass. Intense aroma of coffee is prominent with roasted barley taking a back seat. The flavor is an assault of dark coffee and dark roasted barley. This is foremost a coffee beer and secondarily it is an imperial stout. This flavor is truly amazing. The mouth is thick and chewy.
