look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Pours a near black with just a light hinge of brown, half finger of tan head, nice lacing

Smell is well very nice, like mix of Myrcenary and a imperial stout, tropical at first with a lot of pineapple and oranges then turns in to a roasted note, chocolate, espresso, and more chocolate

Taste is like a spicy and piney hoppy imperial stout, you do get a little orange citrus that mixed with a chocolate very nicely, cocoa, vanilla, pine, pineapple, spruce and a light toffee, you can feel the alcohol ever so lightly in the finish.

Mouthfeel is on the heavier side, not quite like some big stouts but certainly higher then most DIPAs, medium light carbonation, slight dryness on the backend

Wow, I thought New Glarus Black Top had its self together as far as the blending of the styles goes. This is quite a bit bigger beer, but it is in perfect harmony between hops, malt, alcohol presence and feel. Really good stuff. I am trying this for the first time and it is 5 days before its best by date, I know it is not that old but I do wonder if I would like it as much fresh with more of a hop bite, either way I am glad I was able to get some for 6.50 a 4 pack!

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

Poured into a tulip glass from a 12 oz bottle.

Pours deep black with a medium head that quickly dissipates.

Aroma is chocolatey and malty, with pleasing piney hop fragrance.

The taste is a combination of hop bitterness, chocolate malt, and slight alcohol burn. The bitterness remains, but the chocolate lingers on the back of the tongue even longer.

Medium mouthfeel; not too heavy and not too light. Just right.

Overall, this is a fun and complex beer. The hops balance well against the chocolate maltiness.
