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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

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!

16oz draft in a pint glass at The Tapp Room in Boone NC cost $6

A: Opaque ink with no light shining through. There was a small dark tan head that dissipated quickly and left a little lacing. Would be a 5 for appearances if this beer had a better head.

S: Sweet roasted smell with dark chocolate and dark fruit present. Boozy smell as this warmed up, could have passed for a BBA stout.

T: Dark chocolate and bitterness this beer was fairly well balanced. Booze is present as this got warmer.

M: This had a velvety mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation, the body could have been a little thicker as well.

O: This was a pretty solid Imperial Stout. Im not sure how much this is in bombers but the 16oz pint had the alcohol of 3+ BMC beers so Id say the value was pretty good. If it had hid the booze a little better as well as been a bit more complex it would be an outstanding beer. I would recommend it to a friend.
