3.88/5 rDev -5.4%
Pours black with a really nice brown head which leaves some wonderful lacing. The smell is fairly light and mostly of darker roasted malts and some hints of vanilla jumping out at me. The taste has more kick with dark chocolate and the roasted malts being the backbone with a lingering bite from the subtle hopping. The mouthfeel is rich and creamy excellent for the style and it has a nice drinkability to it. Not as good as the IPA's from Green Flash but a solid offering.

3.9/5 rDev -4.9%
Pours a hazy dark brown with two fingers thick dense tan head, settles slowly to a thin ring, leaving a spray of lace on the glass. Smell: toasted and buttered dark bread, black plum, moderate roast, earthy, hint of wood smoke. Taste: bready, plum, maybe fig, mild roast, caramel, hopping is earthy, mildly grassy and citric. Feel is quite creamy, finishing drying with light residual sweetness. This is odd to review. Enjoyable beer, but not an impy stout.

This is a decent strong stout, a bit simple and devoid of complexity, especially for being as strong and heavy as it is.
Black, it has a big brown head.
Aroma is chocolate, hint of coffee, wet earth and bark, hint of winy prunes. Aroma is rich, full, nice, soft.
Taste is full and strong but simple and lacking in complexity. It is creamy, bittersweet, rich chocolate with hint of coffee, brandied prunes and wet singed leaves. It has a lingering burnt-leaf bitterness at finish. There is really nothing else. Compared to Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, for example that beer is far more complex and interesting and well-rounded than this on comparable (in fact slightly lower) abv. This has strong roasty-chocolatey elements but really nothing else.

4.13/5 rDev +0.7%
Large dark tan head on a jet black body. Aroma of vanilla, roasted malts, and milk chocolate. Flavors of roasted malts, vanilla, both milk and dark chocolate, hint of pine hops, raisin and coffee. Very smooth and creamy with light to moderate carbonation. Overall this one is complex, very clean tasting with a mouthfeel making it incredibly enjoyable and easy to drink.
