22oz bottle, 2013 vintage, 8% abv
A - towering and persistent light brown head atop a black colored ale
S - roasted barley, dark chocolate, coffee, sweet malts, raisin
T - loads of dark chocolate, roasted barley, anise, raisin, coffee, prominent & bitter piny hops with grapefruit rind in the background
M - fuller body, moderate but nearly overcarbonated, finishes with lingering roast and pine
O - This is very good! The dark chocolate notes make this rich, delicious, and balanced while not being overly boozy at 8%. Given it's price point, I'm not sure that I'll buy it again, but its quality made it worth the try.

A: Pours black and viscous. Forms a moderate sized deep tan colored head about 5-10 seconds after the pour. Good retention. Light lacing.

S: Aroma is mostly heavily roasted malts mixed with a good deal of hops. mostly citrus rind and pine. A touch of char.

T: Mostly heavily roasted malts. There is a good deal of happiness to the beer, but it comes off with an almost metallic twang. Actually, it's more of that taste you get when you touch your tongue to a 9-volt battery. Roasted malts, char, black coffee, cocoa. Then some citrus rind and a little pine. FInish is more char. Dry and chalky on the back end.

M: On the lighter side for an Imperial Stout. Still full bodied, but not nearly as thick as I was expecting given the viscous appearance. Medium carbonation. Moderate bitterness.

O: Not sure what they were going for with this beer, but, then again, SO is one of the breweries where I never have a clue about brewers intentions. Never-the-less, in the end we have a rather hoppy stout and hoppy stouts can be hit or miss and this one was more miss than hit.
