Kinda meh. Dry stout bill with a bit more alcohol heat. Not a lot, its only 8.5%, but not enough character to back it up.

Pours black with a big khaki head. Aromas of roasted malts and something metalic...IDK how else to explain it, but its kinda weird. Tastes smoky/malty up front (maybe coffee roasts) and transitions into a bitter, hoppy finish. Maybe a bit of dark chocolates if Im reaching. Flavors die off after warming up. Medium body, pretty high carb, and dry as hell. Its an imperial stout with not much to offer aside from smoke & hops. Its like a black IPA.

Draft. Pours near black, with a beige head. Rich chocolate malts, moderate roast, some black patent, and lingering hoppy bitterness. Good stuff.

Mrnoluv (343) - long beach, California, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Classic black stout look, smell is coffee, cocoa, chocolate. The taste is close to a sweet stout if you ask me, the swallow is bitter coffee, bitter sweet chocolate and a hint of saltiness to it. Great beer.

tightslice (1177) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 8, 2016
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate, cocoa. Taste is mild chocolate then bitter hops. Felt disjointed and too much hop component for a stout (for me personally).

Countbeer (6470) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2016
Bomber: Thanks Jason: Served in a Chouffe glass: Sticky beige brown head. Almost completely black body, just a tiny brown edge on top... Nose reveals a classic stout; coffee, roast, chocolate, chalk, mocha... Even light hoppy. Nice! Flavours of roast, chocolate, bitter, coffee, wood roast, mocha, light hoppy and a hint of bay leaf. Tasty! Aftertaste is bitter, roasty, some coffee and malty choco tints. Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel, more than medium bodied. Great base beer and an easy flavourfull drink! Tasty stuff!

Pours a deep rich brown color with a roasted malt aroma. Taste is rich in chocolate and coffee flavor with a good roasted malt aftertaste. Good lasting espresso and rich coco flavor left on the palate after the swallow.
