Appearance - Beautiful black body with 2-3 finger brown head.

Smell - A little light on scents but some roasted flavor, coffee and chocolate

Taste - A very nice balance of rich dark chocolate, coffee, roasted nuts and hop bite finish. Well balanced imperial stout.

Mouthfeel - very full bodied and you could have this beer for dinner as a meal.

Overall - A very well crafted Imperial Stout. Right on par with many other well made ones. Highly recommend.

Beautiful foamy pour that lasts and lasts in the New Belgium snifter. Lacing all up and down the glass and a great creamy carbonation. It's almost a nitro. Aromas of warm grains with a caramel note.

This is a richer, more jolly monk sort of Stout. Relatively sweet with a deep roasted flavor and some charred notes. The hoppy bitterness comes on as a slow burn, and hits the balance for bitterness with all the malt. Strong and mellow. A great nightcap of a black brew.

Another one of the well-made, malty, and appealing brews from these guys in Moab. From the swing-top bottle purchased at Wilbur's Total Beverage in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Purchased at the time of the RR Younger release 2014. Poured into a snifter.

L: light tan, moderate foam, moderate carbonation, dark, but not dense. Minimal lacing. I can see light permeating the edges as I roll it around the glass.
S: Nothing prominent, light chocolate, burnt/roasted coffee mostly. More bitterness than malt. minimal alcohol burn.
F:Light all the way around.
O: IMO this is a light stout in most aspects, almost porterish. It is definitely in the lower spectrum for stout character. A blind test on this and I would have pegged it as a porter. Maybe it didn't age well. Good, but not great. Glad got to try it.
