3.25/5  rDev -20.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12oz bottle
dated: best before 8-30-14
oversized wine glass

A- Pours a near black with a finger high head of dark mocha. ring around the glass after 3-4 minutes, nice sticky lacing.

S- Dark malts, chocolate, some coffee, hints of brown sugar, some alcohol.

T- Very strong alcohol / hops bite right up front, followed by some roasted malt, some bitter chocolate, bitter coffee. Alcohol is surprisingly overpowering throughout the drink, much more than what your nose tells you.

M- full body, creamy smooth and fizz until you swallow.

O- Average nose, and to me this bottle anyway the alcohol is overpowering any balance of the flavors, I have another that I will probably sit on for a year or so and see if it settles down some.

I tried this last night for the first time. While it was not bad, there are much better imperial stouts out there.

For me, the problem was that there was too much of an alcohol taste to the beer. I prefer more of a robust flavor, and this one just did not have it. Maybe it was a bad bottle? Not sure.
