I think this is a solid stout for the price. I put it on par with Ten Fidy

2014 Vintage.

Appearance is black with dark brown hues at the top and bottom of the glass. Not too thick looking, but on par with most other imperial stouts.

Good nose, mix of espresso, roast, dark fruits and hop juiciness. Not too intense.

More dark fruits on the taste with a nice roastiness. A hint of chocolate, but the roast and dark fruits dominate it. A bit of bitterness, but it's balanced well.

Medium to medium full mouthfeel.

A pretty good RIS. I prefer TenFIDY, but this is definitely enjoyable.
