3.82/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a deep black with fb of light brown head. Smells of coffee, cocoa, some smokey notes and a hint of leather, roasted malts and some piney hops. Taste is cocoa, coffee and sweeter malts forward with a rapid transition to a metallic, bitter, smokey note akin to overboiled coffee – a bit harsh, almost acidic and the finish is clean, but somewhat bitter. The high ABV adds to the astringency of this stout, body is medium bodied – but a bit thin for the style.
Overall, not bad, reasonable price point – perhaps aging will removes some of the metallic bitter notes. As a Texas resident, I’ll sample future iterations and see if there’s an improvement – it would be great to have a good local RIS –

4.05/5  rDev -1.5%

Appearance: Arrives fudge colored with ruby highlights; a few splashes of lace remain

Smell: Chocolate and roasty tones

Taste: Chocolate and roasty tones on the front end of the palate with some hops in the middle to cut the sweetness somewhat; boozy in the finish with a chocolate and coffee character

Mouthfeel: Thick and luscious, with moderate carbonation; very creamy mouthfeel

Overall: Rich and fudgy with a great mouthfeel; a bit more of a dark fruit complexity is necessary for this beer to score higher from my perspective

Well I found out we gave it 1st place @ the 2017 LA International Beer Festival last weekend so it was a definite stand out in the crowd of almost 30 other Imperial Stouts.
