1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tap at Salted Pig, Riverside CA. Pours deep brown, near black, with red highlights. Smaller lacing. Nose is soy sauce, sticky sweet grape soda. Taste is concrete, asphalt. Palate is extremely abrasive, wildly papery and harsh. Palate devastating. Something went very wrong here- heavy oxidation or something.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Lakes Market. Labeled as Stupid Stout, not stoopid. Yay speellign! Pours deep dark black. Little to no foam. Aroma is all chocolate and dark malt. Taste is dark roasty, followed by chocolate... bitter edge. 2nd taste brings more chocolate up front to balance the initial roasty toasty edge. Different beer on the 2nd taste. Gonna have to let it warm a bit to get a better sense... As it has warmed a little, some leather and coffee come through, with even a touch of raisins or prunes... Nice. Yum. Not great, but as a homebrewer, if I made a beer like this I’d be pleased.

Rich dark red fruit. Dried blueberries. Tobacco. Shoo fly pie. Dark vegetative mater. Plum pudding. Alcohol feels flammable. Intense, but stooopidly good!

22oz bomber pours with an inky black void like body that supports a nice looking mocha colored head. The aroma offers up thin dark roasted malts, thick chocolate malts and then some chocolate brownie notes. Yummers. The taste is smooth and velvety with a Mel Tormé sort of silkiness. I get velvety fog like smooth melted chocolate bar mixing with rich oily dark roasted coffee, dark roasted malts and then sweet chocolate brownie. This is hitting the spot right now. Rich, roasty and chocolate? I say yes.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Poured dark black similar to used motor oil while a tiny tan colored head. Aroma is sweet and smells of rich roast malts that bring out scents of chocolate. The drink is rich and robust with perfectly blackened malts that give off a taste of bitter sweet chocolate and fresh ground coffee bean. Impressing Imperial stout and for a fair price.
