22 FL OZ ($5.99 bottle) this was very good. the head and color was chocolate and was a thick foam. best stout this summer. This brewer has something going for it. just found them and glad I did, everything I’ve had from them is top notch.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark rich brown color with a nice large head that builds from the bottom as the beer pours into the glass. Aroma of chocolate and rich coffee along with a smooth malt. Flavor is rich but not overpowering or overdone. Lots of chocolate but not overly sweet. Flavor is not as complex as some stouts but there is a lot of it and it does well with what it has. Smooth and almost creamy in the mouth. Good strong flavored imperial stout for those that appreciate a lot of flavor in an imperial stout but don’t want the really intense flavor or high alcohol found in many imperial stouts.

Tan (almost straight brown head) with a rich brown body. Aroma is sweet with hints of candy sugar. Taste is sweet with hints of nuts, oak, and a smoaky texture.

Extremely smooth brew here. Not too alcoholic on the tongue but clearly oats come through and a very subtle coffee remains.

Tap at ibrew wired. Nice enough, rich, roasty, bit sweet. Little bitterness, some citrus, interesting. Lemonade further down. Is that supposed to be there? I quite liked that bit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aromas of expired coffee, toffee, dark malts, malt funk and burnt caramel. Appears black with heavy lacing. Taste is dark malts, raisins, dates, plums, figs, and dry chocolate. Noticeable hop dryness, bitterness, dankness on the finish. Overall, not bad but nothing impressive.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Dark pour with ruby highlights. Boozy aroma of chocolate syrup. It was surprisingly good. Chocolate, milky (but no lactic flavors) and plenty roasty. Yes, it was a little boost and the chocolate tasted a bit like Hershey’s syrup. Still, I liked it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap in a shaker showing pitch black with sparse spots of clean white foam.
Lively foam balanced with strong tart coffee notes on the nose.
Very light bodied for a stout. Very strong tart coffee notes. Moderate bitterness on the finish but stretches on for a while. Slightly too light and lacking weight for a stout. The bitterness is also more of an intense burnt flavor rather than an elegant coffee/espresso bitterness. Feels like they roasted the malts a little bit too much, added a bit too much water, and let it ferment a little too tightly (increasing the carbonation). Just my two cents but as a light bodied stout, it’s alright.
