22oz bottle. Pour looks like used motor oil with a half inch of dark brown head that dissipates rapidly. Minimal lacing. The aroma is very sweet with lots of oatmeal, vanilla and dark chocolate. Hints of earth and coffee. The taste is sweet dark chocolate with some roasted malts and burnt coffee. Notes of vanilla and sweet oatmeal but this beer is mostly dark, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Sweet but not overly so. Boozey and rich. Silky but heavy mouthfeel. Slow sipper all the way, best paired with a glass of water. Overall, this is a big, rich stout that may be a bit overpriced but is still very good.

Appearance: pitch black body; no head; a little dark tan rim; syrupy legs on the glass with each sip

Aroma: dark roasted notes; dark roast coffee; roasted grains, smoky, dark 70% chocolate like;

Flavors: just like the nose; the flavors come together for a great imperial stout; on their bottle they say ‘will overwhelm, satisfy, and destroy your taste buds…;’ I’ll just say that it satisfies my taste buds.

Mouthfeel: no carbonation; the alcohol spice tingles the tongue but it is not overwhelming; nice alcohol warmth on the finish; bitterness is pleasing and under control with hint of toasted caramel in the background; oily, slightly syrupy but not overpowering, full body

To the Point: a very pleasing Double Imperial Stout; a great sipper

Bomber poured into a snifter glass.

Pours a dark black with a dark chocolate head that is very slight.

Smell is strong with chocolate and a slight coffee smell.

Taste is roasty malt with hits of a bitter chocolate coffee taste. slight alcohol burn on the finish with a slight bitter afterbite.

A very strong stout with some interesting flavors. Another winner from Hoppin Frong

Poured from a bottle into a FFF teku glass
it pours pretty dark and pretty much no head
smell is of rich chocolate, coffee, and smoke
taste was of a roasty stout and a bit smokey on the back end
i find it not as much of a traditional RIS or oatmeal stout
due to the extremely smokey flavor on the back end which
I was not a big fan of
this beer was ok nothing that I will seek out again as it tended to be too smokey for me
