    Love Lakefront's beers, though unfortunately here in MA, the only two I have been able to find is their IPA and Fixed Gear. Both were great and their IPA amazing.

    The Cherry Lager and the Cream City Pale Ale are the only 2 that I've seen in South Carolina.

    Nice, that stout sounds interesting. Can't wait to see what the other releases end up being.

    Nice to see it in a 4 pack instead of bombers.

    I tried the imperial stout last night on tap; for those who are local, I was at Benno's on Greenfield. I only had a taste and didn't order a glass, which I believe is a 10 oz pour; so my recollection is not the best since I didn't take any notes (read review at your own discretion).

    S (4.25): It had a great smell, with a lot going on. You pick up roasted malts, toffee, and some dark fruit, plum being what I remember most.

    A (4): Appearance was also rather good, dark nearly opaque. If I recall right, reasonability good head, tan with appropriate thickness.

    T (3): Pretty complex. Leads with the toffee / roasted malts and finishes with the dark fruits. I didn't particularly like the finish, the cherries / plum on the finish wasn't pleasing to me and was why I didn't order a glass. It's by no means bad, don't get me wrong; just wasn't for me.

    M (4): Mouthfeel was good, with a medium to heavy, as is typical for the style.

    O (3.75): Overall pretty good. The taste would keep me from really falling in love with this. I would certainly try a full pour to be fair. Also bringing in price point, I'd say this offers a pretty good value.
