4.25/5 rDev +13.6%
Pours a little bit like motor oil with a decadent mahogany head. Got that big roasty and toasty smell. Smells more cocoa than espresso. You know its got all the signs going for it. Tastes rich and dark. bittersweet chocolate. caramel. maybe a touch of espresso. clean and creamy mouthfeel. touch of booze in a good way. Nothing crazy out of the box, just a well done imperial stout.
9.9% abv, $4 all day for a bomber? Sold! Perhaps I'm bumping my score up a bit because of this, but it's hard not to take into consideration.

3.71/5 rDev -0.8%
Impressively thick and solid dark brown head; retention is excellent, settling to a creamy residue and leaving behind tons of lacing. Brew is black. 4.25
Roasted barley and cacao on the aroma. A little dark fruit, but not the sour, overripe presence from many stouts. 3.75
Pretty straightforward stout, featuring a surprising amount of chocolate, lots of roasted barley, barely tart dark fruit, banana yeast profile, light tobacco leaf, and a little coffee and cream. 3.5
Creamy mouthfeel, with a little sting for the style, and mild alcohol burn. Long wet finish. Very impressive feel. 4.25
For the price, this is a great imperial stout. It doesn't really stand up against the big boys IMO, but at $5 a bomber, it may well be the best bargain in its class. 3.75
