look: 5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a snifter.
A: Pours a deep black impenetrable to light. Pours to a rich creamy tan colored head that lasts several minutes evenutally leaving a thick ring around the edge of glass with moderate to significant lacing. It looks like the epitome of an imperial stout.
S: Gobs of roasted malt bordering on burnt, *sour/metallic* chocolate, a little alcohol as the beer warms.
T: Malty but characterless early palate with no sweetness, ends in a rich burnt chocolate with a moderate hop bite. Underwhelming. Alcohol in the aftertaste.
M: Highly carbonated for the style, some definite ethanol thinning, but in general a silky creamy texture more reminiscent of a milk stout.
O: Somewhat bland malt profile combines with a subtle off smell to leave me unimpressed. This is a solid OK when defining the style, but its definitely unrefined and a little "bold and boozy" resulting from a yeast with high attenuation. Leave some of those sugars alone!
