Type: 16-oz. can Glass: The Bruery 6-oz. taster From: My friend Charlie Price: N/A Purchased: N/A; Received Jan. 27, 2017 Consumed: Feb. 3, 2017 Reviewed as: American Double / Imperial Stout Misc.: No COD Was lucky enough to get 10 pretty sweet beers sent to me by a college buddy. This was my last one. Kind of bittersweet. After sending some over, would like to get a few more back. Poured a pitch black oil color with two fingers of frothy tan head. No bubbles underneath. Excellent foamy lacing. Outstanding retention. (Sight - 4.25) First thought on the smell was, wow, some noticeable hops in here. Really when chocolate meets Citra. Also herbal, cocoa, black licorice, semi-charred wood, hints of molasses, dark espresso and toasted toffee. (Smell - 4.00) Taste followed the nose for the most part. Got herbal, black licorice, woody anise, sticky molasses, dark coffee malts, dark cocoa, dark chocolate, semi-charred wood, roasted toffee and dark espresso. (Taste - 4.00) Full body. Sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, roasty finish. (Feel - 4.25) This was pretty good. Would like to have a barrel-aged version. (Overall - 4.00) 4.04 90 A-

Pours black. Medium head. Smells like an ipa. Very hoppy. This is a black ipa. Way too hoppy to be a stout. Thx Patrick.

From the can. Roasty and dark with a lot of body and then a ton of hops and pine. Really nice.

Thanks to M. Robichaud for the can! Pours a thick-looking dark brown with a medium light brown head that leaves nice lacing. First thing I thought when I had my first smell: salted pretzels. After that it is just roasted malt, coffee, toasted brown malts. Green hops, too. Taste is quite bitter but never too much with more roasted malt. Almost ashy but its not. Almost acrid too but its not, just tiptoeing the line, really. Body is medium-medium-full and carbonation moderate. Lingering bitter roasty finish. A pretty solid american double stout that might be just a bit too bitter for me!

Sdaniel90 (1071) - Mexico City, MEXICO - DEC 18, 2016
Can, 1 pint. Opaque dark brown, foamy/creamy dark brown head. Rich roasted, coffee and hoppy aromas. Full bodied, soft/fizzy carbonation. Thick and oily. Medium sweet, medium bitter, slightly acidic. Fiery roasted flavors into a harsh alcoholic finish. Pleasant hoppy undertones. Heavy and delicious. Unorthodox and even unbalanced.

16oz can. Pitch black with a foamy brown head. Flavors are roasted cereals, toasted bread, licorice, piney hops and caramel with grassy and fruity notes. More than generous bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth texture.

Tallboy can thanks to Joey. Poured a super dark black viscous body under a larger frothy dark mocha hued foamy head that looks like chocolate mousse. Aroma is super roasty, dark chocolate, ashes, burnt grapefruit, burnt toast. Fuller body with softer carbonation and a lingering burnt aftertaste. Flavor of burnt citrus fruit, dark chocolate, burmt toast. Super hoppy, seems like an Imperial Black IPA. Awesome beer.
