4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
One bad mutha of an imperial stout, this Dookie is tha shizz. Black as night, thick and burly, Dookie may have a playful name, but she ain’t playin’. Dark chocolaty with pernicious roast, and a long semi-sweet finish. Creamy and thick with a deep alcoholic finish that is tamed by a lift of bittering hops on the tail. This one is a real treat. You’re not worthy.

12 oz bottle as Soft DK. Pours black with a light brown head. Molasses and cocoa aromas, later anise. Cocoa, molasses, and roasty coffee flavor, hint of anise. Kind of a run-of-the-mill imperial stout; good, but nothing outstanding.

On tap @Brewberry, a dark beer with good brown head, good retention and lace work. Nose is robust on dark malt, dark coffee, even light smoked notes. Aroma is on lactose, plum, dark coffee, medium creamy, licorice, resin, toasted caramel, quite sweet, long dark notes on aftertaste, too much lactose in that.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, purchased at 7-11, Kittery. Color is pitch black with thin tan head that didn’t stay long. Aroma is very sugary, burnt malt, over extracted coffee and faded vanilla.
The body is much thinner for the imperial style. In fact I was wondering how this is over 10% yet feels so weak and watery, should not be this thin. The flavor shows bitter coffee beans, traces of vanilla, weak roast with a dry texture after the sip. Also an odd, out-of-place fruit flavor in the background. Very sweet and surgery with weak flavor and thin body. Not what I was expecting (or wanting), a rather huge disappointment.
