Waste of a stout, a really "who cares/meh" sort of deal, no flavor profile at all, nothing to see here...

The way a imperial stout should be. Good head and smooth velvet on the tongue. Overall a nice beer

This was as good of Stout as any. I had to special order this as it is a limited release and we don't get to big of a variety from Speakeasy in So Cal. It was worth it, this is a rich beer with an excellent drink ability. highly recommend this one if you can find it, Speakeasy rocks! The Scarface barrel aged stout is next on my list if I can get a hold of it.

Thanks to KevSal for sending this one over as an extra!

A: Pours an opaque black with 1/2 fingers width of mocha colored head that dissipates down at a moderate rate and leaves some patchy lacing. 4.25

S: Big roasty notes, with a huge leather and tobacco presence. Subtle cocoa, and a bit of fusel alcohol. 4

T: Roasted malt, herbaceous, some bitter black coffee, semi-sweet cocoa on the finish, subtle booze. 4

M/D: Full bodied, a bit chewy, carbonation appropriately low, ABV is noticeable but its not hot, drinkability is good. 4.25

O: Overall, a really nice IS. Kind of reminds me of an Even More Jesus light, which is a compliment. Definitely worth a try. 4.25


Overall: 4.19
