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.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with a medium khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Slightly fruity. Caramel and some dark fruits. Maybe some cherry.

Taste - Fruity. Licorice and cherry. Coffee roasted malts. Nutty in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Too fruity for my tastes.

Cost: $8.99 for bomber

A: Good black color. WAY TOO CARBONATED. Not greasy, and definitely not viscous as described on the bottle.

S: Mild roasted malts. Can feel the carbonation when sniffing.

T: Mild roasted smell translates to taste. Still distracted by high carbonation on the tongue. Short bitterness in the middle. Finished chocolatey and bubbley.

M: Carbonation overwhelming. Thin body not true to an imperial stout. Which may be why it's not explicitly advertised as one. Very average.

O: Average. No other way to describe this beer. $9 for a bomber is disrespectful based on this amateur effort. Looks like another brewery making an average beer and cashing in. Well, I feel like I got hustled by a high pricepoint and a reasonable reputation from California's beer capitol.

on tap at churchill pub. Big roasted aroma and taste, coffee and chocolate. Balanced but just fair for the style. Black bodied, a small amount of head. Medium mouthfeel, Expect bigger bodied for the style. not that complex or tasty. Drinkable is alright. A tad boozy.

Black and velvety with a handsome thin beige head in the Saxo tall tulip. Carbonation is creamy and mouth-filling. The deep and dark roast malt flavors are the main event. Warm and sweet, but shading into a hoppy, bitter finish.

Abundantly flavorful. A touch of butter and cocoa. Burnt sugar is plentiful with a hint of sweet Vermouth. Blackened malt takes the flab off the sweetness with some sourish hints. Quite sturdy and sippable. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Baron's Market on W. Point Loma.
