Not sure on the lower ratings on this, as the version I had in Jan '15 was delicious, glorious nose of chocolate and bourbon and a restrained sweetness perhaps imparted by the use of agave. Sure, a little thin, but also craz drinkable. Props.

Misc.: On the Kiwi Herman release day

Poured a black color with 1-to-2 fingers of frothy, tan head when I got it. Layered foamy lacing on the sides. Average-to-above average retention. (Sight - 4.00)

Smelled dark chocolate, sweet caramel, toffee, chocolate syrup, butterscotch, vanilla, bourbon and some booziness at the end. (Smell - 4.25)

Tasted similar to the nose. Got butterscotch, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, toffee, caramel, some booziness that weighs on you, and some Jim Beam and Jack Daniels notes. (Taste - 4.00)

Medium body. Creamy, slick texture. Average carbonation. Long, warming finish. (Feel - 4.25)

A pretty decent imperial stout overall. Wish I would have had another Kiwi Herman and tried this at a later date, but it was the first time I saw it on tap since I moved here in September. (Overall - 4.00)
