look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A: this pours black and since am color blind to red, I will take others word it has a ruby hue. Not much head, but nice lacing, in fact impressive lacing.
S: coffee, chocolate, aroma hops, sweetish hints
T: okay, others I think rate this low because of the name imperial, take out that word and let's rate the taste here. I love stouts and porters, and I have had many different brands, and have been disappointed with many due to lack of bold and aggressive flavors. This beer has a wonderful coffee hint but not too much like some. I can finally taste the hints of chocolate, it is full flavored, warming, medium lovely carbonation, smooth and very creamy. This is an alpha stout and I love it. It's one of this first stouts I had, then I sampled so many others thinking I would return to this and find the lack of quality, but I still appreciate this bold stout, and it is sweet, not dry like some other popular brands , not much hops here, but not bitter either.
M: smooth, creamy, slightly prickly carbonation.
D: okay, this is 8ABV and since it is heavy and somewhat sweet, I'd only have a few, but when I want a bold strong stout this will be one of the ones I go for. I will make sure there is always a few in the fridge.
Conclusion: maybe I am still an amateur beer reviewer, but taking the science out, and throwing in the taste and enjoyment. Of a strong stout, this is wonderful. Oddly I will always have a flying dog gonzo imperial stout available as well. Enjoy and give this a try.
