Should an imperial stout smell like bubblegum? Bottle with black pour thick beige head. lots of lacing. Full aroma, of bubblegum. Big bodied, roast, chocolate and malty songs. Malty finish. Sip it, it’s not bad. But should an imperial stout smell like bubblegum?

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is a very dark ruby red having minimal head and lace. Smell of lightly sweet and roasted malt having a dark fruit and hop note. Taste has an overall mellowness having a light balance of sweet, roasted malt and hop with no hint of alchohol. Mouthfeel is medium - light having nice carbonation for the style. An easy drinking imperial stout.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours black coffee with short lived mocha foam which falls to a sheet of the same for a few dozen seconds. Nose is rich malts, oats, coffee, dark chocolate, some fig and graham. A slight note of rye bread. Flavor is a little less appreciable. Coffee, dry cocoa, graham, toasted grains and some dried figs. A little bit of licorice when cold, but as it warmed, this dissipated. Full bodied with moderate carb and a dry finish. Drinkable, but not something I will make a second purchase on.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap @ Fifteenth Ave. Hophouse... Poured dark black with a thin, bubbly, light khaki head. This was off. Infected? Maybe. Tasted of a strong Belgian yeast note with plenty of thinness and esters to support it. Also some diacetyl in the middle which threw it off. Other notes of ash, toasted grains and roast. This one is worth skipping.

On tap. Oddly sweet with very little roasted or chocolate malt flavor. Pretty heavy diacetyl gives it a slick oily mouthfeel. Not a good one
