Pours almost black, with a khaki head. Smells of coffee, chocolate, tobacco, and bourbon.Hints of alcohol, as well. Mouth-feel is extremely thick, syrupy, and leaves my mouth coated with flavor. Overall, a pretty solid stout. Will be putting a few in the cellar

Chocolate, coffee, raisins, and vanilla in the aroma. More of the same in a bittersweet flavor, with some alcohol and roast coffee bitterness in the finish. Another great beer in their Big Beer series.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into a snifter glass. Black color and a thin tan residue and moderate amount of foam on top. Big aroma of dark fruit, coffee and black licorice. Tastes quite boozy, bitter coffee, raisins and fruit cake. Strongly flavored and not-so-easy of a drinker. Overall it's big and bold and best if sampled in small quantities. It was a little bit too much of a doozy for me, but if you want a beer that has a big punch, here you go.

Pours a rich black with chocolate tan head. Aromas are pleasantly smoky with wood, and tart dark fruit. Taste is nicely bitter cocoa, coffee, hints of rhubarb and vanilla, with a hoppy finish. Palate is very smooth and balanced. Solid and enjoyable.

Tap. Very dark pour with a finger of perfect mocha head. Coffee, caramel, cacao. Very smooth and silky medium body with a lot of flavor. Carbonation is refreshing but not overpowering. Silky and long finish with slight bitterness. This is really good

Overall a decent stout, not sure about this Imperial stuff. Most Smutty’s I have been pleased with this is no exception. But it is not in my top 10 stout list.

Just how I like my stouts. $6 bomber and big flavor. This one you could say is run of the mill upper echelon imperial stout, but that is a severe compliment. I still love a bold roasted, chocolate, high octane stout done well for a good price. This one is in the realm of purchase again for the sake of just seeing what the hell happens in 3 years.

Tap from Lazy Dog. Pours a dark brown with a nice layer of tan head. Aroma of slight coffee and chocolate. Taste of intense coffee and roasty goodness.
