look: 4.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

No freshness dating.

A= Pours a deep dark black color with a coffee colored head that with a vigourous pour rises to a finger and holds some pretty decent retention. The head is suprisingly active for a RIS. There is some nice lacing evident on the glass.

S= The smell is quite light for a RIS. A little coffee and dark chocolate comes through but not a whole lot else.

T= The taste is great. Upon the first sip I thought it might be lacking on the taste as well as the nose because it hits you a little slow. The coffee flavors come through first with a strong bite before mellowing out into a coating dark chocolate flavor. Those two are pretty much the dominate flavors and while sometimes used interchangibly these are two different flavors in this beer. The chocolate is silky smooth and tasty.

M= This is another big plus on this beer. With the active head it thought it was gonna be too bubbly for myself but this baby lays on thick and creamy.

O= While the nose was a big dissapointment this beer delivered what I was looking for. Nice flavor and mouthfeel. For a hotter summer night this beer is suprisingly drinkable and plesant. I'll be buying more of this to drink. No need to age this one at all it's perfect right where it is.

3.55/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours pitch black and viscous. Nice looking stout.

Aroma is heavy on the roast and charred malt. Maybe some dark fruits.

The taste is not terribly complex. Tons of roast from the beginning to end. The finish is huge charred, roasted malts.

Lower carb. Medium mouthfeel.

OK beer but I would not seek out again considering the many stellar options for imperial stouts.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

22oz bomber from laymansbeerfan (thanks!) into my New Belgium globe.

A: Very dark & opaque black body with a thicker tan head.

S: Black patent malt, licorice and dark chocolate. Faint herbal leafy hop component to balance. Some molasses and brownie batter in there as well.

T: There is a good amount of dark malt, moderate roast character, coffee, chocolate, licorice, and molasses. Light but bitter presence again. Faint dark fruit and alcohol is barely noticeable.

MF: Creamy, medium/full body with a sticky, viscous finish.

O: A good straight-up RIS with no gimmicks. Plenty of malt character, without being overwhelmingly roasty or sweet.
