3/5 rDev -17.8%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Pint Glass (best by date on bottle)
Appearance: Pours black with a thing two finger caramel brown head. Greatly resembles black coffee in viscosity, appearance, and lacing (which is almost non-existent).
Smell: Dark roasted malts, a hint of sweet chocolate covered cherries, and alcohol phenols waft from the glass. A rather mild aroma compared to other imperial stouts I have tried in the past.
Taste: Roasted malts and sweet cherry create a distinctive harmony of flavour to balance against an alcoholic and slightly bitter medicinal tasting beer.
Mouthful: Carbonation is thin as is the beer. Such a light body on Imperial Stout is interesting and something I would not expect from this style.
Drinkability: Simple, light and very drinkable but not in the style of an Imperial Stout. I enjoy that the higher alcohol content of this beer is masked relatively well and their attempt to create a Stout on the lighter side of this style. However, I don't know if lessening the body is necessarily the best way to go about developing this beer.

Pours a near black color with a slight, slight hue of red. Very little head to speak of; leaves a slight trace of lacing along the glass as you finish. The smell is strongest with hints of chocolate, coffee, raisins; the taste is very sweet, slightly grainy, typical carbonation for a stout with this high a ABV. Very sweet finish. Overall, a good imperial stout for the price.
