maybe the best imperial stout i’ve ever had. looks like an ordinary impy, smells a bit better, sweet and roasty with a coffee chocolate inviting scent that is a fucking joy. smells like motherfucking s’mores. damn. i can taste the alcohol with the mellow dark chocolate, and it is good, roast is just right with a warm half finished cup of coffee with vanilla and whiskey. straight forward clean and delicious. right amount of sweetness, right amount of roast, right amount of bitter, this beer is all the right shit, and if the description is correct is not a kitchen sink beer, maybe more folks should streamline their recipes. i’m glad whoever designed this one did.

Pours a rich black sable with a dark tan head - what I got was rather thin, but this was an artifact of the way it was poured. I’m sure a first pour would have yielded a nice thick head. Aroma fills the nose with rich chocolate, fine coffee, and nutty and molasses hints. Excellent flavor is like a high-quality mocha, fine chocolate and high-quality coffee; it is sweet but not cloying with nutty and molasses undertones. Texture is thick, smooth, oily and fizzy, leaving a tingly and slightly sweet finish. A real winner! nearbeer (5603) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 16, 2017
500 ml Batch 973 bottled Apr. 2016. Inky black with the creamiest non-nitro head ever seen. Aroma is dark chocolate, dark toffee, dark bread, dark fruit, graham cracker, real licorice and a touch of blackberry. Flavors of the same mix plus some espresso with cream, roasted nut, char and ash. Medium-heavy body is silky smooth with low-medium carbonation and the most dangerous drinkability, with no hint of the 11%. I guess my ratebeer quest is over, this is my only perfect score ever given.
