COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep, dark, viscous brew stands up to other imperial stouts, delivering big flavors in a smooth, balanced and easy-drinking package. Robust and chocolaty with a hint of hop freshness, it’s the perfect beer to warm up with as winter cold sets in.

April 19th, 2014 - Coronado Brewing’s Stupid Stout is a great, dark, chocolatey conclusion to a long line of tasters - a dark brew with a foamy head and long line of lacing, like a stitch down the glass. The aroma is pretty normal, a dose of malt, and the flavor is mild yet sweet. It’s more boozy than anything else, but the palate is still somehow light and crisp, a lot like the famous Velvet Merlin from Firestone Walker.

stantheman (831) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2016

Ernest (7118) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (almost opaque). Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (roasted/burnt grain), with notes of leather, cement, alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Rather phenolic nose, and not a lot going on there in general...the phenols kind of kill any malt attraction that might be underneath. Generic in the mouth as well...more like a stronger ordinary stout than what we think of as imperial stout. Disappointing.

mcberko (11864) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2016
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out a good mix of roasted malts, oats and a little cocoa. Flavour is rich and robust, with tons of roasted malt, oats and chocolate in decent harmony. This is anything but tame and one-dimensional, but it is also lacking a bit in drinkability with some abrasiveness. All in all, a fairly enjoyable slow sipper of an impie.

italianjohn (2754) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Black pour with a beige to tan head .... Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and coffee .... Taste is of chocolate, roasted malts, light smoke, and bitter hoppy dry .... Mouthfeel is a little oily .... Finish is lingering with a bitter roasted and smokey ... Definitely robust

Tap@Beer Ditch, Malmö - pours black with tan head. Roasted and sweet malty aroma and taste, with big chocolate prominence, ashy charred burnt malty notes, coffee beans, decent hoppy backing, roasted finish.
