Bomber poured into Parish Tulip.

Looks great with a 1 finger off white head. Smells pretty hoppy with lots of roast. Taste is more of the smoke and roasted coffee. A lot more than I was expecting. It has a medium mouthfeel with equal if not a little more carbonation. Overall, it was different than I was expecting, but I was a pleasant surprise. A nice, and unique take on the style.

Excellent! Not a chewy imperial stout, has an interesting smoke and dry hopped presence.

Overall a solid 4 from me. I was very skeptical upon the nose (crazy hoppy), and the first few sips i maintained my bias, but it grew on me.
