12 oz. Can

Poured into a Trillium glass a pretty nice dark brown color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger tan head, nice oil slick, and also some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, with some nice chocolate/toffee, and coffee, some vanilla, licorice. The taste is pretty nice, malty, with a nice touch of chocolate/toffee, coffee, vanilla, slight licorice, nice sweetness. Medium body, ABV is hidden very nicely, a nice little complex brew. Overall, pretty tasty, surprise me.

Reviewed as: American Double / Imperial Stout
Misc.: Canned on June 21, 2017

Picked up a 4-pack of this on a recent trip to Las Vegas (Henderson). Had two of these previously, giving it a 4.00 on Untappd. Somehow I think I was overrating a bit. Description I found read, “Pitch black and potent, our take on the Imperial Stout is a rich, complex blend of dark flavors and aromas. Dark chocolate covered espresso beans, baked brownies, and the distinctive flavor of roast barley are all present in this beguilingly strong ale. This beer will evolve with age in the bottle and even in the glass. Sip slowly allowing it to gently warm. You will be rewarded for your patience with rich flavors.”

Poured a pitch black color with two fingers of khaki tan frothy head. Calm setting underneath with no noticeable bubbles. Bad watery lacing. Below average retention. (Sight - 3.25)

Smelled dark cocoa, dark chocolate, black coffee, espresso, roasted barley, brownie batter, dark fruits, fudge, molasses and crayon. (Smell - 4.00)

Taste was not as good by far. Got similar flavors to the nose, but just not as good Got dark cocoa, roasted barley, brownie batter, fudge, dark chocolate, black coffee, dark fruit, molasses and roasty malts. Definitely a taste that I’ll never forget. (Taste - 3.75)

Full body. Sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, roasty, warming finish. (Feel - 3.75)

I liked this beer, but felt Iike I slightly underrated it overall. (Overall - 4.00)

Poured from can into tulip.

A- Pour super dark, almost like motor oil, with two finger brown head.

S- Up front I get a Smoky, almost like hint of tobacco, chocolate, espresso coffee.

T- It follows the nose with a smoky taste. You get more tobacco than on the smell. I'm not a smoker, so tasting tobacco was a bit weird for me. You get a hint of chocolate, espresso and caramel. The bitterness hits at the end, but it's not strong. Alcohol is well hidden.

M- It's medium bodied, with light carbonation. It's a bit smooth.

O- I think it's the best stout I've tried from a brewery in Nevada. The tobacco smell and taste were a little bit off putting at the beginning, but I was able to easily get over that. Anyway, I recommend people to try it.

Pours a chestnut-hued mahogany with 2 fingers of tan head. Great lacing and above average head retention

S: Roastyness, a little cocoa, a little booze

T: Follows the nose, dryness as well up front. Cocoa, dryness & roasty as this warms. Finishes dry, with some charred grain & Baker's chocolate

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation

A solid take on the style, worth a try, ABV is well hidden
