i liked this stout. Of course, the fact that it was on-tap made a world of difference, as I have found true with most beer tastings. The appearance was dark, it went down smoothly with no bitter aftertaste, and was thoroughly enjoyable. I could detect a slight hint of chocolate, but not enough to say it was a "chocolaty" beer. That 's a good thing; I dislike beers that have flavorings and spices added to them, often to disguise the otherwise uninteresting flavor of the underlying brew. i will seek this one out again, but prefer it on-tap.

A- black, thick frothy mocha colored head, good lacing on the glass..

S- roasted malts, cocoa powder, some wood notes

T- taste follows the nose, roasted malts impart flavors of acidic light roast coffee, burnt sweet molasses. cocoa is there but not in anyway I will call this a 'double chocolate'.. it is more of coffee malt taste

M- the best part of this beer.. low carbonation..thick and creamy.. goes down silky smooth.. bittersweet aftertaste.. overall if this beer had more pronounced chocolate flavor as the label says (double chocolate).. I would prolly score this a perfect 5/5

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is espresso bean black. A thick dark tan head retains well and there are thick foamy lines of lacing.

Aroma is silky sweet with cocoa and rich chocolate.

Taste is like melted bittersweet chocolate chips. There's only a faint chalkiness.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth.

Overall, not complex, just extremely delicious and perfectly made. 8.5% ABV is undetectable.

Saw a lot of bad reviews on here after I purchased a four pack. I have to say though this is a solid stout for me. Love the thickness/creaminess. I think the only problem with this stout is the name. The chocolate is there but by no means deserving of the title. This has hints of Evil Twins Yin, which is one of my favs. A descent stout for me.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours black with brown hues and light getting through; huge khaki head that fades slowly and leaves great retention and nice lacing. The aromas are very malty. Lots of cocoa and milk chocolate. Some roasted barley in the mix. The flavors are nice, but typical. More milk chocolate. Some hints of vanilla and expresso. It's not too bitter. There's a subtle sweetness to it. Alcohol goes completely unnoticed. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of full-bodied. It feels light, but it's smooth and creamy. This is an extremely easy drinking stout.

This Imperial Stout is enjoyable, but it's nothing too special or out of the ordinary. It's your typical/safe example of the style. There's nothing wrong with it, but can easily get lost in the shuffle. Chocolate is there, but it's not too roasty. Basic, but fine.
