A: poured a dark as night black in color with a nice finger worth of head which was dark brown and left plenty of lacing sticking to the glass.

S: not too much going on in the aroma, pretty basic components such as roastiness, some chocolate notes, maybe a hint of molasses and very muted coffee undertones. I did however get some oat grains coming through.

T: like the aroma it carried over to the flavor consisting of milk chocolate notes, slight coffee was noticeable, a bit of roastiness, hints of molasses, and nice oat grain accents with a little bitterness.

M: the brew was medium in body with a fair amount of carbonation which had a sweet, roasty, slight astringent, oat grainy, milky, and slight bitter finish.

O: just an average imperial stout that is IMO way overrated but just OK all around. Didn't see anything special about it.

Reviewed from notes

22oz bottle

Big thanks to Andrew for the hookup on this one...

A - Pours black with a two finger tan head. Head retention is decent at best, but there is a good amount of lacing to be had...

S - Caramel, chocolate, various dark fruits, coffee, roasted malt and molasses...

T - Caramel, molasses and roast up front with some prunes and figs in the mix. Cocoa also comes through and sticks around all the way through the finish. Lingering figs, a good amount molasses, and a touch of coffee also come through on the finish...

M - Not a light body by any means, but I was hoping for a viscous feel. Sits somewhere on the higher end of the medium bodied scale with a decent amount of carbonation...

O - Overall, a nicely done beer, but nothing that is going to blow your socks off. Definitely glad I got a chance to try this...

Cheers...
