Vapourous, vinous, sweet roast aroma. Inky pour, purply tan head. Roasty, lightly sweet, nice coffee tones, especially in the finish. Medium body and not too heavy, finish doesn’t cling but is pleasantly roasty. On tap, Hay Merchant, Houston.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of sweet roasted malt with subjections of chocolate and dark fruit. Pours a thick black, with a mostly lasting, tan head and moderate lacing. The taste follows the nose - sweet roasted malts. Dark roasted malts, dark fruit, with touches of molasses. Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Overall, a well brewed Imperial Stout. Would drink again.

From the bottle at Double Helix. Opaque with an attractive cream colored head. Dry roasted malt flavor is not complex at all but still satisfying. More of an Irish stout than Imperial. Still a nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Mongoose vs Cobra in Houston and listed as Alien Stout. Close to black with a big beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, coffee and tar. On the sweeter side with a light roastiness in the flavor. Medium-full bodied. Good, but lacking some punch and fullness for an imperial stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the Hay Merchant, Houston, 21/05/13. Labelled as ’Alien Stout’ listed as 8.3%.
Mid black with a thin tan head that clears edgeward.
Nose is chocolate, roast malt, maltesers, liqourice, tar.
Taste comprises light roast malt, chocolate, toffee fudge, lactose.
Fuller end of medium bodied, fine carbonation, light roast finish.
Lacks depth and doesn’t have the ABV for the job, drop the ’imperial’ from the style on this one me thinks!
Drinkable but not one to bother revisiting.

Very nice stout; hits all the right notes. Deep beer pour with the requisite off white head. More chocolately than coffee in flavor. A smooth sipper, not roasty or overally complex, although I'm picking up some roastiness in the linger. Very easy drinking. I'm unsure of this stout's ambitions, but I quite like it. Not much to ponder; just stouty goodness!

12oz bottle. Pours black with small creamy beige head. Aroma is dominated by roasted coffee and chocolate notes. Smooth and sweet roasty flavor with a chocolaty finish. This is good, but I’m not sure if it’s an imperial stout.
