look: 4.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
A: Very Dark brown, almost black no light coming through it, mocha colored head and slight lacing
S: smells of cocoa, coffee beans, sugary sweet and dark roasted malt
T: thin- bodied for a stout, the dark roasted malt really comes through powerfully, strong flavored for sure. A slight citrus is hiding somewhere around in there and the finish is bitter, yet the roasted flavor stays along with it on the palate which makes for an interesting drink.
O: I like this beer, I don’t drink imperial stouts all of the time so this one is a nice change. It doesn’t sit too heavy either which I appreciate and the bitterness is nice too, if I had a suggestion though, it would be that the bitterness be dialed back a little bit so it doesn’t distract from the dark roast of the malt that is so dominating at the beginning, I think it could be better balanced and even though I didnt mind it being a little "thinner" it really ought to be a heavier beer but at the same time I like it and always recommend two brothers beers.

An enjoyable, almost sessionable imperial stout due to its thin body. The score reflects the thin mouthfeel and relatively simple flavor profile. However, what is there is very enjoyable. Roasty malts, tart cherry, dark chocolate flavors. Active, creamy carbonation which offsets the slightly viscous but thin mouthfeel. The alcohols are well integrated. My bottle was aged for approximately 7 months from purchase.
