look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from their 12oz bottle...
Appearance - pours 2 fingers of medium brown foam, body is a nearly opaque black with dark mahogany edges, settles to a firm cap with nice lacing.
Smell - Roasted malts, dark chocolate, slight licorice and whiff of coffee grounds.
Taste - Much like the nose, begins roasted malts, under-ripe dark fruits, plumskins, slight black licorice, black coffee, finishes with roasted coffee grounds, sour dark fruit skins and roasted rye bread crusts, and semi-sweet dark chocolate. Good complexity and balance, slight alcohol presence in the finish.
Mouthfeel - ALmost medium, seems light for a 10% RIS, medium carb, pretty smooth but not quite mouthcoating - flavors are substantial enough to linger long into the finish. Finishes with slight astringency and a touch dry. Good complexity and balance
Overall - This is a pretty good RIS, but I've had much better. HOWEVER, the price point on this actually makes this beer a great value - I would give it a 5 for value. Definitely give this one a try, but is a bit lighter than what I prefer in this style, and imho chocolate plays a very minor role, I would call this one Black Imperial Stout ;o)

3.73/5 rDev -10.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
330ml bottle. Tulip glass. Pure black color headed by creamy foam. Brownish tan is lasting & leaves lacing on sides. Roasted malt & cocoa aromas with herbal hues. Bitter cocoa, hints of toffee & lavender at first sip. Full body. Soft carbonation. Viscous texture & subtle spicy to the palate. Bitterness grows up in the middle & lingers, attached to herbal infusion & creamy roasted maltiness, into the finish. Bitter cocoa on the aftertaste. ABV has been well camouflaged. Flavorful & nice drinkable!!
