Very simple flavor, with a very drinkable feel. Roasted dream.

From a single into a Bad Weather snifter
A: dark cola brown/black, with a thin layer of khaki head that subsides after a minute
S: licorice, roasty and faintly smoky malts, faint chocolate (and raisins?).
T: roasted coffee and toast at the beginning, then just a touch of hoppy bite and chicory char, and then the licorice kicks in at the finish and lingers nicely. improves as it warms
M: smooth and a bit thin for the style...I like something a bit more chewy; alcohol is well hidden
Overall: I'm not complaining, considering the single was only $2. Pretty good, would drink again but I won't go out of my way to find it.

Decent middle of the road Imp Stout. A touch thin, but drinkability is high. Would have again...

Appearance : almost totally opaque root beer colored body when held up to the light, the logo on the other side of the glass can barely be seen. Head is large and in charge. Leaves foamy lace around the cup as it recedes.

Aroma : typical stout aromas with black licorice, dark chocolate, faint cocoa powder, coffee bean. Very strong bouquet, very nice.

Flavor : a roast hop flavor hits first following with a wave of one of the most beautiful coffee bean and bitter dark chocolate flavor I've laid lips to. That rush really helps the score. It leaves a smokey, charred finish. Even at the end there is an encore of spicy licorice bite that balances the char with a SNAP. Just overall fantastic.

Mouthfeel : medium to full bodied, you can't exactly chew it - as it's a little smoother than that, but it easily falls within imperial stout territory. The finish is charred and just the perfect amount of dryness. Some creamy fluff is left on the finish too.

Overall : I have stouts once in awhile. Not just because I'm not a fan - I'm totally crazy about them - but because I like to relish the experience of a stout by abstaining and then basking. This experience was beyond pleasurable. I highly recommend.
