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.

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.

2013 bottled edition. 9% ABV. Pours a very dark brownish-black color with a large tan head that goes down slowly. Scent is immediately roasted, fresh coffee and espresso with dark chocolate and roasted, dark malts. Some nuttiness as well. Taste is just as it smells... the coffee flavors on this are spectacular. Fresh, not stale coffee with dark chocolate and some dark fruits. Some mellow hop flavors throughout. Mouthfeel is full bodied and somewhat creamy. Maybe a bit over carbonated for this particular style. Drinkability is high, with ABV that is detectable, but not overwhelming. Overall, this is a solid imperial stout that I would definitely purchase again, especially with its $6.99 price tag.
