look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A-dark mahogany with a fingers worth of khaki head that leaves a creamy lace layer

S-rich malt, a bit of roasted coffee, and chocolate

T-taste is similar to the smell, dark malt backbone with chocolate, a touch of dark fruits, and a light roasted finish

M-not the biggest body from a stout, light to medium carbonation

Overall not as big as Central Water's barrel series, but a decent imperial stout that is pretty affordable

A: The beer is close to being black in color—traces of brown are visible near the sides of the glass when it is held up to the light. It poured with with a short tan head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of dark malts are present in the nose along with notes of lactose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of dark malts along with notes of lactose and hints of chocolate.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems light for the style and drinks more like a stout compared to an imperial stout. For a big beer, the finish is lacking.

Sampled last night on 7/27/14. Label is different that picture showed. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a brandy snifter glass.

Pours a very deep brown, black actually in color with a small beige head. Some spotty lacing is seen. Perfect carbonation. The aroma is very nice and consists of roasted coffee, hint of licorice and dark chocolate. More going on with the taste actually with lots of flavor from the above flavors with a hint of light spice even. This is a sipper type of brew and not a chugging type. Goes down easy and seem to get better with more sips. Well balanced overall.

Pours a dark brown color with a good size brown head that dissipates quickly. A little bit of lacing.

Smells of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Lightly toasted malts. Just a slight hint of booze. Not the most complex of aromas. Could benefit from a few more scents.

Taste goes right along with the aroma. Boy, is this one smooth, too. Roasted coffee and chocolate lead the way. The coffee really sticks on the tongue. More roasted malts on the back end. Pretty well balanced. The taste does a lot more for this beer than the aroma. It's not the strongest tasting Stout out there, but it is well balanced.

Mouthfeel is not too heavy. One of the lighter stouts I've ever had. Surprisingly watery (not criticism, just observation).

Overall this a good stout, but it is a bit on the mild side. Still solid.
