4.18/5 rDev +0.7%
I can't believe this is the first time I have had this beer.Pours a jet black except for just a hint of chocolate brown when held to the light,a large fluffy deep beige head atop.Smells like sweet alcohol and dark fruit over top of chocolate and roast.The roast plays a much bigger role on the palate,roasted and charred with caramel and alcohol dipped dark fruit on the palte,I have to say the alcohol lingers.This is an old school favorite and Iam glad to finally try it,it kicks ass.

The 22 was poured into a brandy snifter. The body is super dark brown and the head is a fluffy beige. The froth and legs are slick along the sides of the glass. The aroma of burnt malts are heavy alongside the coffee, and background sweetness. The taste comes at me like this - roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolate, and sweetness. The mouthfeel is somewhat smooth, but not too smooth. Carbonation in the mouth is almost chewy and dense.
Overall, this is a solid stout. It is readily available and not pricey. Would I drink this again? With the price point and availability, there is a high probability I would drink this again.

Serving type: 22 ounce bomber poured into a belgian style tulip glass.
Appearance: Looks great in the glass, pitch black with a tan coffee colored two finger head. Loads of tiny bubbles in the head and sticking to the side.
Smell: Faint aromas, coffee, malts, not a lot on the aroma. No alcohol on the nose.
Taste: There is a coffee, roasted malt flavor up front, some bitterness, some dark fruits that linger on the palate. There is no alcohol on the flavor. Finishes dry.
Mouthfeel: Has a great mouthfeel, viscous, smooth, lots of carbonation, coats the palate really well. Great mouthfeel.
Overall: I have some mixed resolutions about this beer, I was expecting more but I am not disappointed. My overall impression is that this is more than a stout but not quite reaching the imperial stout level. It lacks that kick an imperial stout has but has more than a regular stout. It is a very well made beer, smooth, and for 10% ABV I got no alcohol on the nose or palate.

This beer is pitch black with a really foamy tan head.
The smell is sweet malts and dark fruits.
The taste is burnt coffee, bitter, not sweet at all. There's a little sherry fruitiness in the finish.
The mouthfeel is light and smooth.
This beer was ok, I was expecting more flavor and body. I thought it would have some sweetness and a fuller body.
