3.83/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

First off - pretty stupid name for a beer.

any rate,

A - Very dark brown, pinky width of medium/light mocha head - dissipates quickly, leaving just a small amount around the rim of glass. not opaque what so ever.

S - Roasted coffee, dark chocolate, faints hops and very faint spice.

T - initial: Roasted coffee hits immediately- I don't think i'd say harshly or overwhelmingly but is up front and center. Dark chocolate eeks itself in a bit. Finish is more roast, bitter hops, and a little bit of booze. 10 ABVs are hidden for the most part.

M - Creamy, a little thin, not velvet. The roast flavor will stay with you for a few minutes. Viscosity is medium.

O - It's good. I liked most everything but nothing really stood out. Coffee/Chocolate/roast tones are balanced. More roasty then other stouts ive had- you will taste it for a while. It is a bit dry and bitter tho. I do wish the nose was more. Not real complex either. But, I payed $9.99 for this. I will never be purchasing this again.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz Bottled 08/23/13

Pours a beautiful mocha brown head of about a finger. Slowly dissipates to leave a minor lacing.

Smells of coffee, roasted malts, with a touch of malty sweetness and some booziness though very little for the 10%

Taste is mostly of sweet chocolaty malts and some coffee with a good bitter finish to keep from being too overwhelmingly sweet. Initial impression is not overwhelmingly fantastic but it keeps pulling you back in for another try.

Mouth feel is viscous and smooth befitting an imperial stout/porter.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Bottled on 8/23/13 - Poured into Stone Snifter

First look is jet-black used motor oil with thick brown head. Smell is very sweet with cocoa hints, maybe a little coffee and lots of roastiness. Taste is certainly more bitter than was expected from the aroma. Definitely some burnt black coffee along with dark chocolate. Not as thrilled with this as I was hoping. I think I will be purchasing some TenFidy tomorrow!
