3.76/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle, Julian dated 03514. Poured into an O'so snifter today, 4/6/2014.

App- dark black (illuminates very dark brown) body, one finger offwhite head with fair retention, lots of sticky rings of lacing. Looks very much the part of the stout.

Smell- Rich cocoa, milk chocolate, some roast malt, black coffee, a bit of earth. Very balanced nose. Smells great.

Flavour- Milk chocolate, roast malt, black coffee bitterness. A bit of dark chocolate bitterness, quite a bit of earthiness and a slight bit of umami on the back-end. A bit disjointed compared to the nose but still very smooth and fairly well integrated. A fine flavour profile.

Mouthfeel- This has historically been considered a thin bodied beer, and it is fairly thin bodied but not watery at all. The flavour profile packs enough of a punch to fill in the palate. Feel is somewhat creamy and feels fairly decently carbonated. Earthy bitter finish.

Overall- Solid imperial stout that's a steal at the $7.99/6-pack that I've seen it go for on local shelves. Sure, it's not overwhelmingly roasty or complex or even viscous, but this is still a good beer that's worth buying on its own merits. It's clearly an imperial stout to my palate, although the mouthfeel does suffer from it being a bit thin.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - pours pitch black and thick as hell - caramel head that quickly disappears. Some spotty lace after each drink.

S - Chocolate, figs, cherries, smokey.

T - Full bodied big bold and rich mouthfeel - chocolate, malty, some smoke, fruity, raisins, coffee. Acidic after taste.

O - Really a solid imperial stout that is worth a try.

NOtes - thanks to Joey for bringing me some of this back from Wisconsin.
