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.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Relatively light black body for a stout with high light penetration. Bone white head with par retention and lace.

S - Dusty. Dry coffee beans and burnt roast.

T - Semisweet opening of molasses into dark, almost smokey, roast malt. Touch of dark fruit in the center. Super dry, roast coffee finish.

M - Medium/light for the style. Super dry.

O - Not a bad stout. It definitely grew on me as I drank it more. Drinks on the drier side of the style.
