3.86/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Received in a trade and shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown almost black with a thin mocha head that fades to leave light wisps. Great legs.

S - Aromas of darker fruits and perfume vanilla as all vanilla beans. Decent amount chocolate fudge and nutty roast.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with loads of slightly sweet dark fruits and malt. Decent char and vanilla but the finish is pleasant without being over whelming. The finish is thin chocolate syrup.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, almost still, light body, incredibly thin and watery.

O - Overall this was a solid enough imperial stout but really nothing remarkable. The vanilla and chocolate was alright but the body was really really mediocre. Super underwhelming.

Thanks to rudzud
Dark brownish thicker creamy but smaller head, good lacing, medium retention, long thick legs, pitch black thick beer

Nose dark malts, cocoa, dark chocolate but not super fudgey or charred, some vanilla, earthy and spice vanilla, hot spicy alcohol, baking spices, a little anise, a bit of dark fruits, little caramel

Taste rich chewy nougat caramel, thick fudgey cocoa and dark chocolate, some alcohol flavor, like dark chocolate dissolved in vodka or something, lots of vanilla too, spice vanilla and a bit earthy, some caramel and a little coffee char, perfumey alcohol, finishes sticky sweet,

Mouth is med bod but thin watery feeling at the same time, rich creamy, some hot alcohol, medium light carb

Overall meh, doesn't really do it, thin watery and weird chocolate with little depth, vanilla is there but not as complex as I expected
