Split a 4 pack with my brother in law. Always excited to try a new imperial stout. This one was somewhat of a disappointment though.
The pour into the glass was very dark but not as thick as some of the better imperial stouts. As was mentioned in many of the reviews on this site, the smell was of alcohol with some roasted malts in the background. The taste was very similar to the smell and unfortunately the alcohol taste masked what could be a very good imperial stout with some chocolate, dark fruit and malts hiding behind the alcohol burn.
I have another bottle of this. Perhaps with some age on it, the alcohol taste will die down a bit leaving behind a much better beer.
