3.56/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pour an effervescent mahogany with 2+ fingers of mocha colored head. Stellar head retention & lacing

S: A little dark fruit & carob, vanilla & boozeyness once warm

T: Faint smokeyness & prunes, some carob up front. More prunes as this warms, some carob & black currant, a little bit of minty hops & chocolate, plus woodiness. Finishes dry, woody & with a bit of prune & chocolate

MF: Medium body, near flat carbonation, becomes stickier & a bit fuller once warm

Kind of a middleweight in a division of heavyweights, worth a try, but not very memorable. Got a little better once warm

2.13/5  rDev -42.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.25

The smell is fine and so is the look. However, the roast malts seem completely over powered with the aftertaste with a sweetness. When I drink an imperial stout, I want intense roast malts ... hints of coffee or fruit. This stout lacked this and had a strange aftertaste.
