Had a glass at Alewife in Queens. Overall, it's a solid imperial stout that's extra heavy on the roasted barley. It reminded me of dark French roast coffee beans—though not the brewed coffee—for the sharp, earthy burnt flavor. Under the black malt was milder cocoa and sweet-tasting caramel malt and a thick, bold, and bitter body. This is a fine sipper for a cold February night. Give it a try.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A- Pitch black with large lacing no legs and coffee in color

S- Too much bland malt, almost smells oak aged, though this bottle is not.

T- More oak aged... not sure why; bottle does not show this. Chocolate and malt backbone

M- Watery, though better than most for sure. I am just spoiled.

O- A good RIS

Serving type: bottle
