look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a very deep brown, not a lot of light passing through it. Forms a decent light brown head that lingers.

Smell is a bit light for the style. Mainly coffee and chocolate. little bit of dried fruit, mainly raisin.

Very strong coffee flavor up front. Once you get past that, there are hints of chocolate and dried fruit. Leaves a lingering bitterness that reminds me more of coffee than hops.

Pretty nice smooth feel, just a touch on the thin side for the style.

This comes across as more of a coffee stout to me. It is a flavorful beer, but I think throttling the coffee back a bit and letting the other flavors come through. The lack of complexity keeps this from being a truly great beer, but still worth checking out.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance
Black, slight tan, but looks like a cola.

Smell
Dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, or chocolate, not coffee at all.

Taste
Sweet roasted malt, hints of coffee and bitter dark chocolate, turns into milk chocolate. Sweet candy on the taste. Like butterscotch.

Mouth-feel
Nice feel in the mouth.

I liked this imperial stout overall. Nothing to complain about.

Beautiful brew.Full body.Black with brown head typical for stout.Hops are very present.
Aromas of carmel,coffee,vanila and chocolate.They only sell them in 22 oz bottles.After
I tasted it went back and got 2 cases.Superb.As far as brewery I recommend trying more of
Lagunitas.They make several different beers.Cheers.
