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.

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.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: Pours a very, very dark brown (almost black) with a frothy off-white head. Moderate lacing

S: Sweet malts, plums, lightly phenolic. Rather fruity. No smoke.

T: Rich roasted malts up front, with prominent esters; plums, ripe red grapes. Long, sweet finish with a moderate amount of alcohol warming.

M: Medium bodied and creamy.

O: A flavorful imperial stout with a lot of fruity esters which are somewhat overpowering. No smoke detected in the nose or on the palate.
