3.64/5 rDev -6.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
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.
