4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nearly black and opaque with a mocha head that disappears a little too quickly. Otherwise, a gorgeous brew. Very rich, dark roast coffee aromas. Creamy milk chocolate and coffee flavors dominate, with some cherry emerging. Finishes with coffee acidity. Mouthfeel is extraordinarily creamy, but not viscous. Wonderful stout. Although, the ABV that it is listed here on BA as having is not accurate. According to the chalkboard at Coronado, this beer is 10% ABV.

Tasted at Willow Park Beer Bash 2014. Unfortunately, there was no time for detailed notes - and I only made it through half my list even so!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

I like this one. Smooth. Not particularly complex, but for the ABV, incredibly drinkable. Slightly but not crazy sweet. Don’t think about it too hard and it’s wonderful.

65 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Courtesy of & thx! to Sebletitje. Black with a mocha head. Sweet touch boozy nose, liquorish, syrup, hint molasses, caramel, mocha. Taste is sweet, malty, toffee, mocha, touch liquorish, plenty of mocha. m/m body. Simple, nothing earth shattering but very substantial never the less.

Bottle. Moderate toasted and dark chocolate for the malt, light burnt herbs and earth for the hops and yeast, with vanilla and alcohol in the background. Head is small to average, frothy/creamy, light tan with good legs and lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is medium to full, creamy with a soft carbonation an a sticky and lightly alcoholic finish. There’s both bite and smoothness in this top notch Imperial Stout.

Draft at Whole Foods Plymouth. Thick, dark black pour with brown head. Heavy dark malt, cacao, molasses in the nose, with an intense malty, cacaoey flavor with some hops and lactic balance. Very good.

Tap @ O’brien’s. Listed as Stoopid Stout. I really have to disagree with VAc this was nice. Pours black with a light brown head. Nose of coffee and roasted notes, slight chocolate in there too. Taste is full of chocolate, and coffee, very rich, super malty.
