Dark brown appearance with nice head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is a mild smoked malt. Taste is not the prominent smoked I was expecting. The taste is rather lackluster.

4.47/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pitch black with hazelnut brown highlights. Pretty looking thing with a deeply tanned and very thin head which nearly completely flees the scene.

The smoke is subtle, but that chocolate rye is poppin! Very roasty overall without much sweetness to detect. Odd, considering the source and the marshmallow addition.

Once again, the chocolate and spicy rye is most notable. Extra charred toast and light traces of smoke. That marshmallow still barely makes itself known, which quite frankly I am more than ok with. But a nice and mellow molasses comes in to represent the sweet aspects in their place.

Good rich feel but not exactly "thick". Heavily roasted, awesome earthy bitter finish and that nice linger if mold smokey goodness. Barely acknowledges any sweetness other than the aforementioned bakers goods and syrup.

This is another winner from Great Notion. In all honesty, it tastes, smells, feels like a proper Russian Imperial Stout versus a Pastry big boy.

Cheers.
