Ordered a US pint of this brew at Vivo in Ikebukuro on a busy Friday night. Sitting next to some old Japanese women talking about how they don't like "yankees" with rude manners, throwing the word American in there a few times. Luckily, I agree with them, so it don't bother me none. I sit back with my Zune pumping some vintage Sasha into my lobes as I enjoy this hefty brew. The thin head on this brew looks like roasted caramel it's so dark. Looks like a chocolate stout. After the first sip, there is a delightful coffee bean aftertaste that gives you something to think about. The mouthfeel is nice and thick. This beer tastes like how I imagine Burt Reynolds' moustache tastes -- awesome. Not even halfway done with the pint, I can feel a warm tingling in my palms. Definitely a nice side effect from the 9.5% alcohol content. This brew leaves a nice film on my gums and teeth that feels like I haven't brushed my teeth in a week. That might sound disgusting, but I think any imperial stout should have this lasting effect. And it's awesome.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a brownish-black coloring, with ruby highlights in the depth and a towering, frothy, chunky, light tan head that doesn't appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. Aromas of subtle, bittersweet chocolate, roasted coffee, tangy caramel, and creamy highlights. Interesting nose, and not nearly as heavy as most imperial stouts. Flavors are roast and sweet forward, with a mocha blend of flavors, some creamy highlights, and a solid dose of hops bitterness and floral notes in the backbone. Very unique and interesting. It really works here. Smooth, mid-bodied, transitioning to a smooth, coating, lingering finish. The aftertaste is more of the sweet and bitter roasted notes, but those green hops characteristics are still in there, too. Very interesting. I like this beer. Not sure how much the dynamic flavors would affect the drinkability over the long haul, but it is unique.

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is close to being jet black in color—traces of brown are visible near the edge of the glass when it is held up to the light. It poured with a thin off white head that died down and then completely faded away.
S: Moderately strong aromas of dark chocolate are present in the nose along with hints of roasted malts.
T: The taste has flavors of roasted and chocolaty malts along with a light amount of bitterness. Little if any alcohol is perceptible.
M: It feels full-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite bitter and chocolaty, but seems to have an unusual aftertaste that is somewhat detracting.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Cost: $8.99 for bomber

A: Good black color. WAY TOO CARBONATED. Not greasy, and definitely not viscous as described on the bottle.

S: Mild roasted malts. Can feel the carbonation when sniffing.

T: Mild roasted smell translates to taste. Still distracted by high carbonation on the tongue. Short bitterness in the middle. Finished chocolatey and bubbley.

M: Carbonation overwhelming. Thin body not true to an imperial stout. Which may be why it's not explicitly advertised as one. Very average.

O: Average. No other way to describe this beer. $9 for a bomber is disrespectful based on this amateur effort. Looks like another brewery making an average beer and cashing in. Well, I feel like I got hustled by a high pricepoint and a reasonable reputation from California's beer capitol.

Thanks to kyle2k10 for this bottle with a great name. When my daughter asked what we were drinking I said “Stupid Stout” & she said “Why, does it suck?” Out of the mouths of babes. 22 oz. screen-printed bottle split with my wife.

The pour is appropriately dark-sider & would look good as a Depeche Mode album cover. Very low carbonation to the eye. Nose is full & rich, great roast twined around a vine of chocolate. I like the preview.

Stupid Stout should be re-packaged as Raisin Stout. First sip has a solid core of Raisin Bran Crunch without the bran & crunch. Liquefied raisins ambush the senses, slaughtering the roast & chocolate that can barely be groped underneath. Bit of licorice comes through. Half a bomber is more than I could readily stomach, but man up, max12! This gotta go down.

Weird & not very appealing, too much raisin & not enough of that beautiful nose comes through in the taste. I heard it through the grapevine that this is a mediocre beer. Shrug.

Pours a deep ebony color with a small, beige head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of deep roasted notes, almost like burnt coffee.

Tastes of the the deep roasted notes. Espresso and bitter chocolate notes abound with some molasses sweetness to it. An oat nuttiness comes through before leading into a bit of dark cherries. An earthy bitterness is present throughout with a touch of fruity hops coming in. A bit of booze comes on the backend, along with some lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is full with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is an enjoyable beer, but the inclusion of fruity hops has me scratching my head. They get lost in the mix and it feels like they are wasted here.

22 ounce bomber served into a wine glass. Stupid pours black with just a hint of ruby around the edges in the light. Mocha cap offers good retention and lace

Aroma of deep roasted malts, chocolate and coffee and a background hint of dark cherry/caramel. Dark fruit and chocolate carry to the taste, bit jammy on the finish with a nice depth to the malt character throughout. Touch of alcohol on the aroma at times but not so much on the taste, nicely balanced yet not too sweet or too roasty either. Offers a good feel and finish. Right on style and drinkable without any overbearing tweaks in character.
