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!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

Black and velvety with a handsome thin beige head in the Saxo tall tulip. Carbonation is creamy and mouth-filling. The deep and dark roast malt flavors are the main event. Warm and sweet, but shading into a hoppy, bitter finish.

Abundantly flavorful. A touch of butter and cocoa. Burnt sugar is plentiful with a hint of sweet Vermouth. Blackened malt takes the flab off the sweetness with some sourish hints. Quite sturdy and sippable. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Baron's Market on W. Point Loma.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A - solid black, big thumb of brown head that held strong at a finger with complete lacing all around
S - big chocolate and licorice with a little perfume and fairly warm alcohol scent
T - big playoff of chocolate malts vs. perfume hops, hints of allspice, charcoal, leather, and mild pine and alcohol sweet finish
M - big chewy stout feel matched up against some hop bitterness and alcohol dryness
O - it in your face and massive all around, but it manages to work itself into a level of balance that I did not think it could, but in the mutually assured destruction sense of the term .... my kind of stout

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at The Stein & Vine. Served in a snifter glass.

A: Very dark brown, nearly opaque, with a thin tan head. Low visible carbonation.

S: Brown, sweet malts, a bit of chocolate, fruity and nearly vinous, and maybe some anise to boot.

T: Follows the nose. Roasty, chocolate, and some of the fruit, anise, then significant boozy heat at the end. Fairly sweet overall.

M: Medium body, somewhat sticky mouthfeel, carbonation sensation on the low side. Alcohol is quite noticeable.

O: Not bad, although not a stout I'd rush back to. I've got a bottle of this in the cellar...which is where it's gonna stay for a year or more. The booze needs some time to calm down. Still, an enjoyable beer overall.
