I was honesty not expecting much from this beer given the mixed reviews. I found this beer to be delicious and creamy. It has the dark fruit notes of a Russian stout but a bit sweeter than you would expect without being over the top. Definitely will buy this again. Hard to find a stout this big at the price point.

Wow! Nice, heavy, dark, roasty molasses offering. Caliente Pizza and Draft House, Bloomfield. Best one of the day for darks. Leah's b-day celebration.

Pitch black

Big presence of coffee, cocoa, nuts, roasted malts both in smell and taste. Some booziness.

The mouthfeel is velvety and thick

Overall a nice big imperial stout

Very nice imperial stout with lots of flavor and depth. Pours a very deep, dark brown with a little tan head and very spotty lingering lacing. Smells of medium roast coffee, dark stone fruit, wood, bourbon and caramel. Tastes similarly, along with just a hint of chocolate. Plum, raisin and molasses come to the forefront. Smooth, thick, full mouthfeel, good carbonation. Very enjoyable but definitely a slow sipper.

Very reminiscing to ten fiddy, almost to a T. Balanced well especially for 13%. It’s not hot or fusel-y. Not to cloying sweet or burnt acrid or bitter. Thick, dark, m/f MF. Grab this if you like ten fiddy.

Pours a really really deep brown, just enough light getting through to keep it from looking black. Thick chocolatey brown head that is very active yet persists well. Beautiful in a glass.
Smell has strong pruney/figgey notes like a barleywine, some chocolate notes hiding in the background, but dominated by the strong scent of dark dried fruit. Also a bit of a boozy nip, not a great smell for the style, more like a barleywine or old ale.
Taste has a strong whiskey bite up front along with a strong hit of that same pruney/figgy note that was dominant in the nose. There are notes of coffee in the midbody and the whiskey booziness lingers. There is a complex flavor here but it is not coherent, instead I get moments of wonderful richness interspersed with moments of abrasiveness acridity. To some extent this effect is lessened as I slowly drink through this one but that may be a result of the palette being battered by the assault that is this beer.
Mouthfeel is very nice, the beer is no small potatoes and it's flavor is an all out assault on reason, yet the mouthfeel manages to maintain an admirable level of balance and modesty. You know you are drinking a stout but you are not drowned in a syrupy mess.
Overall this is one that I might be interested to see with some age on it, this can is about 3 months old with a best by 2 years past canning. Maybe age would help these big flavors learn to get along better. As it is now though this isn't one I would go back to. Might be something for those of you who like boozy and pruney old ales or barleywines but as a stout i find it more abrasive than anything else.

I find this beer to be light and heavy. Yeah, it’s a lil heavy and light. Like Tyson vs de la Hoya this is. Pours hella black, rich n heavy, but the nose is all faint n like. Then Raul takes a sip and he is like more or less ho hum. It’s aite, but who the hell just likes aite? Raul says call this one “Ho-Hum stout.” Be gone!

Poured from a 12oz can with a best by date of 4/2020; into a snifter.
Appearance- dark and thick like motor oil! The thin tan head disappears quickly leaving no head; no lacing.
Smell- fudge brownies, dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans, charred oak bourbon barrel!
Taste- an absolutely delicious assortment of fudge, vanilla, coffee and bourbon!
Feel- quite the heavy weight, but given the massive 13% ABV, it is actually not overly boozy!
Overall- a straight up, no nonsense, no funny stuff imperial stout. This one just comes out big on ABV and no added gimmicks; really a quality offering!
