Smells roasty and chocolate. Deep black with a small tan head. Flavor is pretty good, sweet and malty mainly with some hop and roast bitter balance. Ripe fruit yeast esters. But it's kind of thin body and none of the flavors really stands out or seems like a big Imperial Stout. It's fine but if I'm thinking of great impy stouts to seek out this won't get in the conversation.

Big thanks to JohnGalt1 for sending me this in a trade a few months back. Slight label variation noted, this brew is 9.5% ABV vs. BA listing.

Appearance: Pours out a fairly thin looking dark brown. About 1" of khaki colored head forms, which has surprisingly short retention time and virtually no lacing. Between the thin looking body and below average head characteristics, not a great looking beer.

Smell: A bit of roast, a bit of coffee, perhaps a bit of milk chocolate and licorice. I also get faint piney American hops. Nothing really noteworthy about this.... scents are very cohesive, but just kind of plain.

Taste: Roast, coffee, and a hint of milk chocolate are noticeable up front, with a bit of hoppiness on the back end. Overall though, this is an extremely thin and watery stout. Has some nice base flavors, but it is close to astoundingly thin for a 9.5% ABV stout.

Mouthfeel/Overall: To repeat myself, extremely thin and watery. Definitely the weak link of this beer, and really brings down every other characteristic. Overall, this beer does have some redeeming qualities, but is just too thin to be a good example of the style. Work on that body a bit and it will improve every other aspect of the beer, at least for me.

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

Appearance: Pours a chocolate fudge brown color with a modest head that leaves a bit of lacing behind

Smell: Chocolate and coffee with a hint of ash

Taste: Very chocolatey, up front, with the coffee arriving in the middle and lingering into the finish; a bit ashy in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Though it is a bit one-dimensional, that dimension is quite enjoyable

Thanks, JohnGalt1, for the opportunity
