Big viscous brew pours thick and pitch black in color, large texture mocha tan head swells up above the rim of my chalice. Fine speckled lacing coats the glass evenly as the foam fades down.

Aroma dark chocolate, soy sauce notes, intense roasted malt profile creamy notes are in there as well...evident alcohol but not booze ridden. Definite roasted coffee qualities not sure if there's any coffee but it smells like coffee! Hints of anise arise as the beer warms up a bit!

Flavor creamy chocolate notes hints of caramel roasted malt and coffee notes acrid dark roasted malts blend really well, slight umami soy sauce characteristic is definitely there. Drinks really smooth, sweet chocolate encompasses the palate finishing like a dessert beer.

Mouthfeel is full bodied able to chew on this beer, big ol' imperial stout. Really goes down smooth across the palate, high calories substantial beer here...really good offering from Coronado excellent silky smooth textures and even carbonation.

Overall, impressive beer from start to finish very good stuff, world class imperial stout from San Diego imagine that!

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.

Adding beer - All I could find on here was the 12th Anniversary BA version and the Stupid Stout English version, either of which this is not.

First got to try this at Stone 15th Annie and really enjoyed it then so very stoked to see this on tap.

-Notes from 10-20-11

A: Stoopid Stout pours an oily slick dark ale with some lighter edges to it. A nice one finger head of brown sugar color foam formed. Tracked intervals of spotted lace.

S: Smells of roast coffee aromas and some burnt toasty grains.

T: Very intense roast flavors and rich with notes of coffee beans and some bitter dark chocolate. Hoppy bitterness is spice and pine. Pretty hoppy actually. Warm but nice. Alcohol flavors are subdued. Rich and complex. Fantastic balance. This is a Stoopid Stout yo!

M: Nice smooth mouthfeel. Medium to heavier body and creamy. Not too viscuos. Lighter finish that is crisp and dries up a bit. Slight puckering hop effect.

D: A robust brew that exercises great balance. Not syrupy or boozy by any means. Quite drinkable and packed with flavor.

A fantastic stout. As good as Idiot is an IPA, Stoopid is a Stout. Hope to see more of this brew. I bet the BA version is awesome. Would highly recommend.

draft at beer study in chapel hill. FW tulip

pours a pitch black with a creamy beige head. smell is huge on malty chocolate goodness right away...impressive! taste actually holds true and is also so rich and creamy with those amazing malty chocolate notes. full bodied but ABV isn't detectable.

overall this is amazing and deserves a much higher rating!
