3.6/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a brown color and a mostly cloudy consistency. There was a big, tan-colored, creamy, long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: A pretty good aroma of malt, chocolate, and hints of coffee.

T: Tasted of roasted malt, cocoa, a little bit of coffee, and a tinge of hops in the finish. Slightly boozy, but not enough to worry about. A decent enough flavor, but not quite balanced enough.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a sharp, prickly finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Kind of a mixed bag here. Smoking Gun is an uneven beer with some good qualities that doesn't quite make it. Nonetheless, it is drinkable.

This is a funky decieving brew. In my honest opinion it tastes less like an imperial stout and more like a brown ale.

For a brew with an ABV of 10% you can hardly tell. It has a smooth round yeasty bittery taste and a root beer brown/black appearance with solid lacing. If you're judging this as a stout than I understand it will be a let down, but if you're rating it simply as a beer (no more no less) it's quite nice. Still, I'm not sure how to properly approach this brew, only a detective can really crack this crime scene.

3.81/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A: Not quite black, but very dark brown with a garnet hue. Thick, light khaki colored head that dissapated relatively quickly.

S: Sweet and sugary, Belgian yeasty, slight roast, no real smoke.

T: Sweet up from to bitter roasted malts, followed by a faint, lingering smokiness. Hot on the backend, but not bad for 10%.

M: Medium + body. Smooth and creamy.

O: Not a bad brew, but not a masterpiece either. Taste seemed to take a dive towards the end of the glass. I would drink again, but not sure if I would search high and low for it.
