Poured from 22oz bottle into HF tulip. Poured a deep brown, but somewhat see through. Nice tan head, gone quick. It looks good, but deff not like a stout. Smells is fantastic. Great roasted malts, coffee, and nice boozey notes. Taste is very good...caramel like, coffee, and good slightly bitter roasted malts. Easy drinker and very very tastey. Highly recommend this brew, especially for the price of $5.99/bottle. Just dont think its a stout..its more like a light porter or roastier/hardier brown ale.

Poured from the bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a reddish dark brown color with a layer of off white head. The head fades to a ring around the pour.

Smell: Lots of roasty coffee. Slightly earthy with a peat note. I'm also getting some alcohol and dark fruit.

Taste: Quite a bit of coffee here, but not much sweetness to back it up. There is a dark fruit note along with some peat here too. The finish is quite roasty, and could use some more balance.

Mouthfeel: Medium with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I really think this could have used some more sweetness. Not bad, but there are much better coffee stouts.

A: The beer pours a very dark brown, almost black body with a half inch thick tan head that quickly fades.

S: The first thing that I notice in this beer is the strong amount of dark malts. It smells like the mash of a stout and chocolate grain. There is also a strong amount of booziness and a bit of coffee.

T: The flavor just isn't doing too much for me.. I mean it has decent flavor, but its way too sweet. The flavors linger in my mouth and they just arent very pleasant. I wish it had a little bit more bitterness.

M: This beer goes down very smooth and is easy to drink. There is a little bit of crispness on the back of the tongue and as the beer goes down.

O: I absolutely love Imperial Stouts, but this is not one of the ones that I would go back for. It is decent, but not great.
