3.93/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bomber into a snifter...national stout day!

A - pours with a very nice looking tan 2 finger head. black with an ever-so-slight ruby hue. Can't really see through it at all, but you can still see a slight reddish hue around the edges. I think the head is retracting much slower than other imperial stouts I have drank. it is leaving the smallest amount of lacing on the glass

S - yum! nice and chocolately. roasted malts for sure. has a sweet smell in the background that beckons you to sip. Hints of coffee all around

T - a surprise....the aftertaste is very reminiscent of the scent.vanilla and dark chocolate right at the front accomonied by a mild hot alcohol burn. Is that a piney aftertaste? Is this a stout with hops (almost) boldly coming out? I think so! Very interesting mix to have the sweetness of a stout accomponied by an alcohol burn AND a slight hop character. I think I like it. I'm going to buy another and see what happens when you give it some time to mellow out. I think the hops work well to keep it not too sweet

M A bit of a lighter feel than other stouts. Still nice and slick. Good amount of carbonation but I would like even less...think I will change my mind when it warms up a little more...kept it in the fridge 15-20 min too long, I think.

O Pipeworks makes some great beers. This is no exception! I look forward to trying more from this brewery. I like the character of hops here but I think it is almost too much (and I love my hops)...I think this will go from being a good-great beer to being an amazing beer after some aging

3.43/5  rDev -15.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pour is a very dark brown with a tight light brown head. Nose is a light roast, some chocolate and vanilla notes, with a fair bit of sugary malt sweetness and berries. Body is thick and decadent. Roast is heavier, notes of chocolate and vanilla. Faint bitterness and the berry and slightly sugary malt accompany a semi dry finish.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Really dark and black, strong creamy light brown head with nice two finger head. Nice lacing that sticks.

S: First hit of aroma was espresso with some dark chocolate, and figs. Really pleasant smelling. Some alcohol

T: Again begins with the espresso and chocolate then moves to bittersweet cocoa, molasses, and some piney notes. A touch of alcohol at the end.

M: medium to full-bodied with a really nice creaminess that I enjoy.

O: Really nice beer, cant wait to try the fruit variations of this beer.
