American Double / Imperial Stout |  8.25% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Jet-black in color, this monster smells of coffee and chocolate. The taste is much of the same, with hints of creamy toffee and roasted malt. Smooth and delicious, this medium bodied ale is all about the malts, but has enough hop bitterness to be balanced.

Big thanks to pjones for this wonderful beer part of a stupidly epic box of wonderful beers he sent (sent 2 of these bad boys!!)

A darkest brown which allows barely a whisp of reddish cast light to pass, with a beautifully light beige, multi-finger, looong lasting head. Just an advertisement of itself, so perfectly framed in an Alchemist pint glass.

Beautiful aroma of the softer notes of roast malt. Molasses, and a light caramel smell lead, nice roasty chocolate-coffee-dark caramel with it, sweet, subdued, enticing.

Put chocolate more to the front of the nose aromas, and you have the taste nailed. The soft roast is here really tasty, no ash to it, nor acrid, and all the other flavors make for a medium strength, delicious taste. Plenty of sweet at end of sip, maybe a touch too much?

Very creamy, medium carb., no cloy, pretty clean flavors and decent finish.

Best stout in a can I've tried. Best stout? No, but really fine. Number 2 going to hb club for stout research. Wish there were more of these.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Near jet black with the faintest dark ruby highlights around the edge. Head is a solid finger of light brown foam that fades to a thin cap. Sheets of lacing left behind.

S - Big aroma of roasted malts dominate the nose. A bit of espresso annd bittersweet chocolate mix in as well. As the beer warms a faint hit of something very earthy pokes through. The roasted malt really dominates the nose from start to finish.

T - Big roasted malt and a touch of an astringent burnt grain. Faint hints of dark fruit mixed with bitter chocolate and freshly roasted coffee.

M- Medium to full bodied with a surprisingly stgrong carbonation. Roasted flavors really linger long after and sort of coat the mouth.

O - Not a great American stout, but certainly not a bad one either. Another strong beer from the folks in Conroe.
