4.11/5 rDev +4.3%
Poured into a balloon glass.
Look: Espresso coffee bean black, a dark cream colored head recedes to a thick film. Light spots of lacing.
Aroma: Chocolate bars, oatmeal flakes, rye.
Taste: The dry chocolate presence really is amazing. A dry oatmeal cookie body comes after. There is a black licorice hidden underneath.
Mouthfeel: Dry, very dry but not heavy.
Overall: Rich oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. This beer is delicious, no flaws really.

Midnight black body with a thin yet lasting light tan head. Deep chocolate and roasted grain aromas; a bit of spicy, minty smell, too. Big bittersweet chocolate flavor; strong bitterness; a bit of astringency at the finish; a twinge rye crispness and sting hiding in the background. Heavy bodied; smooth; semi-sweet finish.
Luscious and full-bodied stout. Nice balance of malt sweetness with an almost IPA-like hop bitterness. Perhaps it's the rye and hop combination that faintly resembles a bourbon-barrel character to things (I don't believe this beer was barrel aged), but whatever the case, there's a lot of pleasing nuance and depth to this stout.

a pitch black pour with 2 fingers of dark brown head (great retention), lots of sticky lacing. dark roasty aroma, toasted grains, dark chocolate, coffee beans, licorice, and grassy hops. the flavor profile and mouthfeel are reminiscent of a dry irish stout.. medium body with a dry finish, low carbonation, silky smooth going down. lots of roasty flavors in the profile, coffee, tobacco, chocolate, licorice, subtle grassy hops, belgian style yeast gives it a nice bready profile.
this is a solid stout overall, i wouldn't really call it an imperial stout as it says on the label, it's too low in abv for that, but the deliciousness of an imperial is there.

Poured into a perfect pint. "Natasha Rocks America" on lable.
4.0 A: Black color. Two and a half fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is good with lots of lacing left.
3.75 S: Hoppy as hell. Floral, citrusy, piney, herbal, and earthy in that order. The hops pretty much overshadow everything else, but you can pick up on a solid roastiness, a touch of chocolate, and hints of rye. Not a huge fan of hoppy stouts, but this one at least smells good.
3.25 T: Like every other hoppy stout out there, the hops don't mesh well with the dark, roasty flavors. Jumble of roast, hop bitterness, citrusy hoppiness, chocolate, herb and flower, and rye. Everything is out of place with everything else. It's slightly more palatable than most hoppy stouts, so I gave it a minor boost.
3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Not as creamy as I'd like, which is a shame since it could easily be that way.
3.0 D: Not a huge fan. I want my hops in IPAs and my roasted barley in my stouts. I wish brewers would cut back on "being creative."
