3.96/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours slick dark black in color, relatively thick. Head is tan and about two finger with good retention.

Smell is great. Some rich caramel malt along with some toffee and light coaco aromas. Herbal hoppy resin finish and ties it all together in an interesting way.

Taste is good, moderate piney hop bitterness is forward along with a mildly sweet roasted charcoal like malt that adds to the bitterness. Mildly sweet rich toffee flavors finish on the back end with a light residue sweetness.

Mouthfeel is good. Thick feel, big body and moderate carbonation are all balanced nicely. Sweetness is offset with the bitterness but the bitterness is a little high for me.

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.
