look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Glugs into the snifter super-dark. Looks black with a dark mocha-colored head. Sits at a half-inch. Falls to a ring with some haste.

Roasty aromas of mild chocolate and kilned grain blends with an herbal and distict smell of whole leaf green tea. Lighter still is a whiff of espresso. Earthy and very light notes of berry.

Dry, earthy green tea flavors correspond with usual stout maltiness. Green tea leaves, heavy roast, herbal bitterness, tart berry, dark cocoa, espresso, spearmint, and earthy hops. Really impressed at how these flavors marry. Very earthy tea finish with a quiet booze warmth.

An inflated body with lots of chew, supported by a languid and chunky carbonation. 10% is hard to believe.

So enjoyable. Such a unique drinking experiencw. Worth the buy. I would love to get more.

4.25/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Undated bottle at 40 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of roasted malt and a hint of spice.
Head small (< 1 cm), light brown, creamy, fully diminishing to a 2 mm layer
Lacing virtually none – few small clusters of bubbles, not lasting
Body dark brown to black, opaque
Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, and a little tea spiciness. No alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl.
Palate medium to full, creamy, soft carbonation

Good. Very, very good. I wish I had purchased several bottles. Besides beginning as a lovely stout, the tea adds an interesting dimension and slight spiciness. This seems a little thinner than the Gonzo Imperial Porter, yet is still creamy and smooth.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours jet black with a brown head. In the aroma, sweet tea with a small roasted malt. In the taste, roasty caramel, with coffee and sweet tea notes all the way through. A small bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dryer roasty caramel malt in the aftertaste. The smell and taste of tea, with the look and aftertaste of a stout, interestingly different.
