Pours a thick, dark mahogany, almost black. You can’t see through it. Large tan head that didn’t hang around too long but left lots of lace. Nose of coffee, chocolate, and malt. Thick, almost chewy mouthfeel. Taste at first almost like a chocolate milkshake but then the hops kick in to balance it out.

A growler at Imminent Liquidation.

A: The stout pours with a steady black darkness. There wasn't much of a head.

S: The nose is roasted, sweet with chocolate. The body isn't as strong as many double stouts; it does, though, have a nice ring to it.

T: The ale strikes me as more of a schwarzbier, roasted and dark but not to the nth degree. Surprisingly, I like the more restrained body of the stout. Chocolate lingers, loiters even, but it never rises to the 'too strong' level. The ale retains a light body throughout, sweetly roasted without a strong hop presence.

M: The mouthfeel is roasted sweet, a chocolatey blend. Hops and thick malts are nowhere to be found, instead I enjoyed to relaxed body.

D: I can't imagine that this stout is too strong. It strikes me as a schwarzbier, rather than a stout or a double stout.

The initial pour gave me a finger of deep-tan bubbles that quickly faded to wisps. Color was a deep dark-brown allowing zero light penetration. Nose had a dark chocolate richness, like a brownie or a piece of fudge. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, a little on the thin side for the style. I got an initial wash of dark chocolate on the tongue, then I tasted a smoky charcoal quality. Finish had a dusty, cocoa powdery quality initially, then fading off to a smokiness that lingered well past the swallow. This is not one of my favorite styles, but for an initial offering from a new local brewery, they really did themselves proud. I look forward to the releases of their other beers in the future.
