1 pt 0.9 fl oz. bottle poured into a Founders snifter.

An athiest stout? Sign me up.

Appearance: Near black with a huge two inch light brown head. Head sticks around for a long time, especially considering the style. Leaves an impressive lacing.

Smell: A lot of roasted malt, molasses, and dark chocolate. Some burnt qualities.

Taste: Similar to the smell, with roasted malt, molasses, dark chocolate , and some burnt sugar. I really like what the slight burnt flavor in this beer - gives it a nice depth. Bittering hops kick in on the finish and give it a bittersweet finish. Alcohol is hidden very well.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, very smooth despite the seemingly high carbonation level based on the appearance.

Overall: Excellent. This really captures everything that I'm looking for in an imperial stout, with a great depth of flavor and an in-your-face roast quality. Spot on.

12 oz bottle into Deschutes tulip snifter

A - Solid representation of the style. Thick dark liquid that pours with a gorgeous chocolate milk colored foam. Head dissipates eventually, but each sip stirs up another bit of foam. Splotches of lacing.

S - Blasts of dark roasted malt mixed with chocolate. A bit of mineral character and a trace of funk - two things that I was not looking for.

T - Roasty freakin' malt. Some umami flavor. Not bad, but not overly complex.

M - I tend to like a lot of carbonation, but this one was over the top carbonated for me. To the point of distraction. There was also some unexpected astringency. The whole affair is quite tingly. If I was eating some greasy food, this beer would help cut through it. Hmmm... that sounds good...

O - Maybe my expectations were too high, but this one did not perform like I had hoped. I would gladly, gladly try it again, but I just didn't get the Wow Factor from this one. That said, it is definitely worth trying, and possibly great with greasy food. I'm giving slightly higher marks because I sat on this bottle for a while. The beer didn't taste old, but maybe it would have been better fresher.

Served at room temperature into a modified pint glass.

A: Completely black, no light coming through this blasphemic piece of crafted liquid. Brown, nougat coloured head.

S: Chocolate, soy sauce, coffee, brown sugar and liquorice. Everything's there.

T: Chocalate, liquorice, brown sugar, soy soauce and toffee. The taste delivers what the smell promised.

M: On the medium side of medium carbonation. A bit thin.

O: Well, in my opinion it's not perfectly balanced and it has a little too much carbonation and lack of body for my taste. It's a well tasting beer sold for a noble cause but there's plenty of imperial stouts that brings a lot more to the table than this un-godly creation.

Vintage unknown. 500 ml bottle into a DFH signature glass. The "atheist" tie in comes off as a bit gimmicky. Beer is the last place I want to have religion or politics present.

A - Pours a dark black viscous body. Dense mocha head with large bubbles and gobs of sticky lacing. Excellent looking stout.

S - Roasted malts, licorice candy, coffee, and vanilla. A bit of smoke and an interesting hop fruit sweetness.

T - Bitter coffee and milk chocolate initially. Finish is light smoked malts and cigarette ash, the fruit here is dark rather than sweet. Simple, robust, inviting.

M - Silky and smooth. Great carbonation and mouth feel.

O - A very simple yet tasty stout. The mouth feel is near perfect and the faint cigarette ash in the aftertaste is surprisingly pleasant.

500 mL bottle poured into a CBS snifter. No bottle date.

Appearance - Black with an ample mocha head. Thick collar around the beer. Nice islands of bubbles.

Smell - Chocolatey with a bitter malt presence. Comes off as coffee and black patent malt.

Taste - Lots of chocolate in the taste. Chewy fudgy chocolate. Turns bitter with almost a smokey finish. Slightly sweet with a touch of alcohol.

Mouthfeel - Very chewy at first, but the carbonation cuts it quickly. The finish thins out and alcohol comes through. Nothing intense, but enough to notice.

Overall - Quality stout. Very good without being standout in any category, though.

Poured on tap at black and blue in Easton

A- deep black with huge 4 finger tan head. Creamy looking.

S-lots of dark chocolate malts with licorice. Dark fruits linger too.

T- dark roast with a bitterness that hides the sweetness beautifully. Had a hint of licorice that makes this beer a sipper.

M- thick and smooth

Great stout
