3.78/5  rDev -10%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

thanks to normyk for this awesome extra!

pours more like a baltic porter than an imperial stout (i.e. really dark brown instead of black). the head is a dark cream color that i've never before experienced with an imperial stout. the smell is of chocolate brownies and coffee. mmmm... hot chocolate at Christmastime. nothing much else in there, and while it isn't unpleasant, it almost seems a little artificial, like canned cake frosting.

wow, its almost like drinking a liquidized brownie that's been soaking in baileys and kalua. tons of bitter-sweet chocolate notes, with a nice bitter coffee finish that isn't at all over-bearing. not too much complexity due to the overwhelming amount of chocolate and coffee, but there is a hint of caramel, and a big alcohol presence that is hot on the palate and in the esophagus. a lingering hop presence in the aftertaste that combines decently with the coffee/chocolate bitter-sweetness. overall, and i cannot stress this enough, it tastes a lot like brownies, or even fudge. this one is much too sweet, and the dominating coffee and chocolate combination do not work as well as they could.

mouthfeel is perhaps the most uneventful part of the beer. super-light (which is certainly unexpected). again, more like a baltic porter than an imperial stout. drinkability is good here, however, it may be a little too sweet, and the sheer richness of the chocolate (again, imagine brownies or fudge) makes it difficult to imagine opening up two in the same night.

a very good beer overall. if it was readily available to me, i would buy it consistently.

4.26/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- Pours a pitch black with a large, foamy espresso colored head.

Smell- A huge nose that is full of chocolatey notes with subtle coffee and caramel as well.

Taste- The chocolate takes the forefront again with nice coffee undertones. Sweet and full of flavor but very drinkable.

Mouthfeel- Full bodied. The alcohol is hidden well which makes for awesome drinkability.

Overall- A complex, refreshing stout that hits the right notes on almost all levels.
