3.23/5  rDev -24%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 2

Poured this beer from a 22 oz bomber into a duvel snifter glass.

A- This imperial stout pours a dark brown, almost black in color with about a half a finger of lacing that quickly subsides into a thin layer which remained through about 3/4 of the glass. The lacing from this beer was minimal with a few small strains here and there.

S- The smell from this Imperial Stout was very, very bold. Chocolate. Lots and lots of it. Alcohol also came through on the nose and just the slightest hint of roasted malts.

T- To be honest, this beer was too sweet for me, hence the average 3.0 rating. There was lots of bitter dark chocolate flavor...a whole lot, but I just couldn't get any depth from the brew. Some mild alcohol notes came through and just a the smallest hints of roasted malts. The chocolate flavor was just way to overpowering for me to give this any higher of a rating. A beer needs to have layers of flavor and complexity, and for the this was a very one dimensional brew. The finish was dark chocolate and bitter tasting (IE Bitterness from the dark chocolate)

M- Good mouthfeel with little carbonation. A nice thickness and smoothness, but not overboard in either category.

D- This falls flat when it comes to drinkability. The chocolate sweetness just became way to much after about 8 oz's, which took about a half hour to drink. It took me an hour and a half to finish the last 14 oz of the bomber.

Overall, this would be an exceptional beer for the chocolate lover who literally wants to drink liquid chocolate. For me, however, it was much to sweet and much too chocolaty for my personal liking. I was hoping for a nice chocolate backbone with lots of other flavors, but it turned out to be focused more on loads of chocolate flavor than complexity.
