New Jersey

2.5/5  rDev -39.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Super deep brown color, close to black, very big light brown head. Super sticky. Asphault cocoa powder roasted malt and an overall earthiness on the nose.

Suprisingly light for an imperial stout. Brisk carbonation, same flavors that are on the nose, a bit of astringent coffee. Thin and burnt tasting, not really understanding the high rating on this one. Earthy bitterness that doesn't really compliment the other flavors. The one upside is you can't detect the 8.8% other than that though not a good beer. Harsh astringent and with flavors that dont meld.

3.2/5  rDev -22.1%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A - Good pour, with dark head solid black appearance

S- I am not sure what I am detecting in smell, but it is not pleasant. It smells almost like smoked beef on a metal plate. Small hints of chocolate

T- On my first taste, the taste matched the smell, but as I continued to drink the smell got better and the true taste was able to shine though. Bitter roasted malt and dark chocolate with hints of expresso. Very bitter for a stout.

M - More foamy than most stouts and medium viscosity.

O - Overall the taste was good but the smell was to much to over come, I do not think I will purchase again.

3.55/5  rDev -13.6%
look: 5 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Black body with a thick creamy light tan head that leaves lacing.

S: Slight metallic scent, and a hint of roasted grain.

T: Rich roasted flavor full of bitterness. Notes of coffee and cocoa. It has a very good flavor.

M: Very nice mouthfeel. Big and full bodied with good bitterness and carbonation. Very easy to drink but doesn't put me to sleep.

O: Overall it's a very good beer. I'm not sure what's going on in the scent department. That metallic note is off-putting but it's still a good beer. Stout lovers or those who enjoy a good cup of espresso will find this a very enjoyable beer. Overall the scent is really what takes this beer down a notch. It looks perfect in the glass, tastes and feels outstanding.
