look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look: jet black, little head, uneven lacing.

Smell: anise, cocoa powder. Very pleasant.

Taste: sourness, roasted barley, some hops bitterness. A little underwhelmed for the style.

Feel: again, really not up to snuff for the style. More thin and watery than expected for an imperial stout.

Overall: Much prefer their BBA Dragon's Milk stout to this offering. Good beer, but not the wow factor of other impy stouts.

Definately a class A stout ! Pours smooth with very little head and a rich dark brown color. Will add this one to my rotation, even at five bucks a bottle...

This beer is great. Pours pitch black in color. The flavors were great in this one.Full bodied with notes of roasty malts, chocolate covered raisons, caramel, toffee, dark fruits and slight hop profile.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a chalice. 2015 vintage.

Appearance: Pours midnight black with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of deep tan head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A very roasty and toasty dark malt forward aroma with good hints of chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. Dark roasted barley malt with upfront hints of dark chocolate, coffee, toasted bread, smoke, caramel, and yeast. Sweet hints of molasses as well as some tobacco, leather, and anise licorice. Big hints of dark fruit with some cherry, raisin, and prune. Also some earthy hop hints. A very good rich aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a rich, roasty, and toasty dark malt driven taste with big notes of chocolate and dark fruit. Rich dark roasted barley malt with notes of dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, toast, biscuit, smoke, caramel, and yeast. Sweet notes of burnt molasses. Also coming through are some notes of leather, tobacco, and anise. Lots of sweet dark fruit undertones with notes of cherry, raisin, prune, and plum. Some earthy hop bitterness comes through towards the finish. A really nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Rich, creamy, and fairly drying on the finish. Alcohol heat is masked well.

Overall: A really good take on an Imperial Stout. Good roasty and bitter dark malt tones with some nice sweet dark fruit undertones. Stands up there with the other great big stouts.

Dark brown with golden edges. Very subtle chocolate notes. Kind of thin for a big stout and, as a result, the alcohol seems to bite a bit too harshly on the finish.

2015 vintage. 11.5% abv. 12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours the darkest brown; small light khaki head that fades leaving okay lacing and retention. The aromas are full of dark chocolate. Smells like a chocolate chip cookie. Flavors follow the nose. Roasted chocolate is there. Dark fruits are there. Some vanilla and caramel in the mix. Some anise/black licorice. Some espresso. Although it's bitter, there's a sweetness to it as well. It's bold and rich. The alcohol is well hidden, although there's a subtle warmth. Slightly spicy. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and creamy, but not thick. Dangerously drinkable.

This is a very nice stout. I really like it. Well done.
