4.45/5 rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Brooklyn chalice.
Appearance: Pours pitch black with a lot of bubbles. About one finger of deep tan head that fades into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.
Smell: A roasty, sweet, and earthy dark malt forward aroma with big hints of dark chocolate and coffee. Dark roasted barley malts with big hints of dark chocolate, coffee beans, vanilla, milk, caramel, toast, biscuit, grains, nuts, and yeast. Sweet hints of molasses. Hints of anise licorice spicing. Subtle dark fruit hints of cherry and raisin. Subtle earthy hints of hops in the background. A very good stout aroma.
Taste: Like the nose, a roasty, sweet, and fairly earthy dark malt driven taste with a big presence of dark chocolate and coffee. Upfront dark roasted barley malts with good notes of dark chocolate, coffee beans, vanilla, caramel, milk, dough, biscuit, nuts, toast, grains, and yeast. Sweet taste of molasses and sugar. Notes of anise licorice. Fairly earthy with some background notes of hops. Light dark fruit undertones of raisin and cherry. A very good imperial stout taste.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very creamy and slick. Alcohol presence is noticeable but not overwhelming.
Overall: A very good take on an imperial stout. On the sweeter side but far from cloying. Very good chocolate and coffee presence.

A - thickest, deepest, black with a very dark caramel head
S - malty and slightly vanilla and coffee
T - graham cracker, latte, vanilla, sweet
M - smooth, thick
O - Different, but amazing. It's on the sweet side so... Delicious and does not need to age. I'd like to try the BA version.
