4.19/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- The brew is extremely dark. Minimal head, but it makes up for quantity with its frothy consistency and mahogany coloration. Foam clings to the glass long after taking a sip. The beer itself looks darker than night, but does not have the expected thickness to match and only appears to be a medium bodied IRS.

Smell- Fresh coffee and soy sauce

Taste- Massive espresso and cocoa flavors mingled with smoke. Sweetness and spicy booze finish increases as it warms.

Mouthfeel- Silky mouthfeel, creamy and slightly chewy . Despite this, it has low carbonation and provides a peppery sensation mostly due to the slight booziness.

Overall- A solid RIS. Not my favorite, but very good. It would warrant another purchase sometime (at $11 per 22oz bomber) but I would still rank it below Old Rasputin, Founders Imperial Stout, Stone IRS, Great Divide Yeti, and Great Lakes Blackout (all readily available in my area for cheaper prices). I would rank this on par with the Brooklyn BCS, and there is some overlap in flavors between the two with the dominant chocolate and spicy booziness.

Thick and oily, pouring a very dark brown while ending up near-black in the glass, this beer produces a dark brown head, one of the darkest I've seen, one finger tall. It shows good retention and the lacing coats the glass's walls well.
The aroma showcases, foremost, sweet and creamy milk chocolate. There's a hint of coffee grounds, light wafts of smokiness, vanilla, and a meaty nuttiness, but this big stout seems to show off the sweetness as its primary aspect, with less focus on the roast than many.
The roast is certainly there, though for the most part the flavor meets the aroma's expectations very closely. There's lots of cocoa before the roastiness, which remains for the duration, with a light accompanying nutty flavor that's meatier than almond but drier than walnut. Also pulling through is a vaguely detectable note of dark fruits, not prominent and not as strong as many in the style, which suits this beer just fine. It's more like overripe very dark red cherry, maybe, than anything. It ends with barley notes leading and following into the finish.
The body is thick, full and very smooth. This beer is a treat all around.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Sweaty cola black with a rich brown head. half finger still sticking around five minutes after the initial pour, with lacing evident where it receded from its initial multi-finger standard waving.

Nose is rich dark and a bit boozy. There's roasty depth to it but I can't plumb the precise peculiarities that lay within.

A sharp alcohol spice predominates, followed by an ashy dry smoke and strains of bitter chocolate and black coffee grounds. Sharp alcohol bite is still a bit overpowering, though. I wonder if this would benefit from some time...

Low carbonation suites this beer just fine, and it's smoothe enough on its own, though the alcohol burn kind of predominates. It feels like a collection of short stories directed by Jim Jarmusch. Strong bitter finish with a last desperate stab of sweet chocolate youthful folly before being drown by the dry ashy and alcohol temperance of cooler heads prevailing.
