3.84/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a snifter
A - This beer pours black with less than an inch of cocoa colored head.
S - The smell has some dark chocolate and cocoa. I also get a molasses aroma and some grassy hops.
T - I taste a little of the dark chocolate. I also taste some bitter cocoa and some hops that provide a mildly bitter finish.
M - Full
O - It is good but a little bitter for my liking. I prefer chocolatey or coffee flavors to bitterness in my stouts. I like it, but it is not a favorite.

3.55/5 rDev -9.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Poured from bomber into snifter at about 55-58 degrees
A - nice black licorice color with surprisingly thick tan head. Good-lasting lacing
S - not so bad but not what I was expecting. Lots of piney hop aroma. Pretty hop forward
T - again, the hop profile dominates with subtle notes of roasty, nutty malt.
M - very light on the tongue, almost slick. Hop bite lingers awhile on the tongue.
O - this smells, tastes and feels more like a black IPA than an ImpStout. Not a bad beer, but really not a top of the line Black IPA either.

3.29/5 rDev -16.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
A: rich dark brown to black color. Very good lacing.
S: strong roasted malts aroma
T: strong dark chocolate flavors along with the roasted malts flavor. Lacks the imperial stout flavor I have come to appreciate in other imperial stouts.
M: not as thick as I would have liked from an Imperial Stout, but not too thing. Carbonation is good.
O: it is a good beer but lacks many of the characteristics of imperial stouts that I grown to love an crave.
Serving type: on-tap
