4.14/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

The pour is so dark and beautiful.
Smelt like molasses and malt, bitter sweet.
The taste you get a tinge of coffee, dark chocolate, and ended on the sweeter end with molasses and kind of a cherry taste.
This is a heavy beer. Not a strong stout, but I felt full after drinking this.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a dark brown with a decent size beige foam head with decent staying power.

Aromas of molasses, bakers chocolate, dark fruits, and flat cola.

Tastes is on the lighter, fruity side. Some good bitter stout characteristics followed by a fruity swallow and light bitterness on the aftertaste.

Overall this is a decent stout. Good aromas abound but the taste is somewhat more sweet than I expect for an imperial stout.

Poured from a bomber into a Pilsner glass.
A: Inky brown/black with a tan head--I did an aggressive pour and got a 1.5" head; lacing is OK but not really long-lasting or magnificent
S: Aroma is about a 3.9, not what I would usually rate a 4.0, but I rounded up--moderately deep chocolate, and coffee and then some alcohol comes through, well-balanced, rich, very enjoyable
T: Bitter chocolate, coffee, malt, well-balance, delicious, very satisfying. My favorite stouts I rate at 4.25 to 4.5, so this one is not in the same league, but it is really delicious. Malty/bitter/alcohol finish.
F: Medium thick, almost chewy, full bodied, wonderful
O: An outstanding stout that costs half as much as my real favorites. I'm glad I tried it!

Tasted in an 11 oz snifter from draft at O'Toole's on February 1, 2017. Look is nearly black with a tan head and spotty lacing. Smell and taste is chocolate and coffee with subtle hop notes. Feel is full in body.

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.

$ 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.

Appearance 4, Aroma 4, Flavor 4, Palate 4, Overall 4.25
