4.16/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Split with my wife immediately after nailing my Air Force fitness test. Served in a Game of Thrones snifter.

A: Poured dark, not too thick or oil (which was surprising), and with only a hint of a mocha head that lingered for a while.

S: Moderately potent mocha buttercream flair, without any sort of an intense coffee ground quality. Think Starbucks Chocolate Mocha.

T: Signature Russian Imperial Stout profile: Cocoa-cinnamon mix with lots and lots of molasses. The coffee really hits on the finish.

M: Nice bitter slap on the end, not too sweet, and with a slight bit of lacing left on the glass.

O: My first Hardywood beer. It didn't disappoint.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

750 mL bottle poured into a mini pint glass.

Appearance - Dark brown, almost black. Nice lacing. Thick collar and some wisps.

Smell - Ouch. Grassy raw coffee. Sweet malts. Harsh coffee.

Taste - Worse. Like watered down coffee. Very raw and green coffee flavor with a characteristic acidity. Just a bit of chocolate malt to back it up.

Mouthfeel - A little acidic. Even some booze. Bitterness.

Overall - Had this twice and neither time has it been good. Just a crappy coffee flavor.
