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.

3.24/5 rDev -15.6%

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.
