3.81/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: A hard pour fails to raise too much of a head so the tan foam settles down quickly into a film on top of the obsidian colored liquid; on the lacing front, however, it is a better story, with many squiggles lining the chalice

Smell: Roast, dark fruit, caramel, chocolate and a hint of coffee

Taste: Caramel and chocolate, up front, with a dark fruit element building in the middle; after the swallow, some coffee and an earthy hop element arrive to cut the sweetness; the finish has the dark fruit returning to lead the sweeter tones

Mouthfeel:: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This beer takes many of the expected elements of an American Double Stout and flips them on their head; enjoyable, once you figure out what is going on, but not the kind of creativity that gets me really excited

On tap at Uber Tavern in Seattle.

A one finger light brown head and a black body. Nothing unexpected.

Smells like molasses, maple, and prunes. Vanilla too.

Tastes like dark chocolate, earthy coffee, and dark bread. Pretty much in that order.

It has kind of medium thickness for an imperial stout.

I ordered this because I love imperial stouts and I had never heard of this one, or the brewery behind it for that matter. No regrets.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Decent khaki head. Wispy.

Smell - Caramel and chocolate. Roasty malt. Some bright dark fruit, almost acidic.

Taste - Really chocolatey. Dries out quickly with a fair amount of caramel malt. Bitter in the back.

Mouthfeel - Thick. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Pretty good. Nothing spectacular.

Purchased at 99 Bottles.
Appearance: Beautiful almost black color with frothy tan head.
Smell: Sweet yet herby aromatics. Sounds strange but almost picked up a little bit of dryer sheet.
Taste: Good balance of bitter and sweet. Some dark chocolate and coffee notes followed up with some milk like sweetness. Roasted quality. Ever so slight metallic aftertaste, think it's hops.
Mouthfeel: Very velvetty. Smooth and creamy. Lightly carbonated.
Overall: Very decent. Solid choice. I like the slightly hoppy aftertaste, it grew on me after a while.
