4.35/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a pitch black with copious tan head. Smells of roasted malts, cocoa, leather. Tastes sweet, smoky malts forward, molasses, unsweetened cocoa, a bit of an acidic, piney twang mid note and balancing bitter kick leaving a very clean palate . Not syrupy despite its sweetness, medium bodied, smooth almost milky profile.
Overall very well balanced, smooth imperial stout – thoroughly enjoyable.

Pours black in color, looks full-bodied and has a nice tan/brown colored head that sits on top. It looks like what I'd want my stouts to look like. Aroma is potent of roasted malts (of course), with notes of coffee, iron, and potting soil. Big roasted flavors come though again in it's taste along with coffee, alcohol, char, and black licorice. A great tasting stout, and one that also seems to hold up well with age.

Full-bodied, nice carbonation, all around a pretty darned good stout.

Thanks to kyle2k10 for this bottle with a great name. When my daughter asked what we were drinking I said “Stupid Stout” & she said “Why, does it suck?” Out of the mouths of babes. 22 oz. screen-printed bottle split with my wife.

The pour is appropriately dark-sider & would look good as a Depeche Mode album cover. Very low carbonation to the eye. Nose is full & rich, great roast twined around a vine of chocolate. I like the preview.

Stupid Stout should be re-packaged as Raisin Stout. First sip has a solid core of Raisin Bran Crunch without the bran & crunch. Liquefied raisins ambush the senses, slaughtering the roast & chocolate that can barely be groped underneath. Bit of licorice comes through. Half a bomber is more than I could readily stomach, but man up, max12! This gotta go down.

Weird & not very appealing, too much raisin & not enough of that beautiful nose comes through in the taste. I heard it through the grapevine that this is a mediocre beer. Shrug.

16oz draft in a pint glass at The Tapp Room in Boone NC cost $6

A: Opaque ink with no light shining through. There was a small dark tan head that dissipated quickly and left a little lacing. Would be a 5 for appearances if this beer had a better head.

S: Sweet roasted smell with dark chocolate and dark fruit present. Boozy smell as this warmed up, could have passed for a BBA stout.

T: Dark chocolate and bitterness this beer was fairly well balanced. Booze is present as this got warmer.

M: This had a velvety mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation, the body could have been a little thicker as well.

O: This was a pretty solid Imperial Stout. Im not sure how much this is in bombers but the 16oz pint had the alcohol of 3+ BMC beers so Id say the value was pretty good. If it had hid the booze a little better as well as been a bit more complex it would be an outstanding beer. I would recommend it to a friend.

$ 8.47 (With tax)/22 oz bottle ($ 0.385/oz)
2014 vintage at 42 degrees into a hand washed and dried JK snifter
Aroma of roasted malt and some coffee, weakens but lasts
Head – small (Maximum 2.8 cm, aggressive pour), medium brown, creamy with rocks, diminishing to an irregular lacy five to ten mm ring and thin partial layer
Lacing good – wide partial rings of tiny to medium bubbles
Body dark brown/black, opaque
Flavor – roasted malt, a hint of dark chocolate and a hint of coffee; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate – medium to full, almost creamy, soft carbonation

Not a bad imperial stout and a decent price point. I’ve had better and I’ve had worse – would buy again.

Nice and dark in color, I found that this one tasted better with some age on it. A good stout for sure nice subtle chocolate taste. Coronado always makes pretty good beer.
