look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - Pours a dark, viscous black, very opaque. Good 2 finger mocha head that leaves a decent amount of filmy lacing.

S - Actually sensing quite of bit of dark fruits and licorice in the nose. It's a bit of a disappointment on the smell, I'm not picking much else.

T - Very sweet, lots of brown sugar and oatmeal. Fades into a bit of a coffee bitterness and milk chocolate, but it's hard to pick up. I don't know, there's something that just doesn't blend well here. It's too sweet and the balance comes too late.

M - It's smooth and creamy, which is good, alcohol is pretty much hidden.

Overall - I wasn't sold on this one. It seemed too fruity and sugary. Just seemed terribly off in the balance.

I poured this thick beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was really black as it should be. Very chocolate looking and the head was too for what little bit of time it was there. The smell was sweet but the taste was not. The beer had a bitter and dry mouth feel. It was thick and chewy. I do not think I will buy again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

pours dark brown looks black in the glass with a small tan 1/2 fingern tight bubble creamy head that left spotted lacing

smells like a milk stout coco roasted malts and a little coffee

taste is nowhere near what an impy stout should be and the taste is just ok for a regular stout - it has a bright tangy flavor maybe a mix of coffee and hops? but its not a bipa - good roast and coco flavors though

mouthfeel light thin body but has the right amount of carbonation

overall - not a stout i would buy again - will stick with the two beers green flash does well ipa and bwine
