In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Coronado Brewing Company Stupid Stout

Aroma: “A bit of slow smoked pork BBQ mixed with Cinnabon and cocoa nibs topped off with some Christmas spice. Caramelized brown sugar, figs, light chocolate and coffee notes. Smoky undertones and dried fruit.”

Flavor: “On the sweeter side for an imperial stout. Lots of milk chocolate, latte-esque coffee notes. Fairly light body for the style, but since the flavors are a bit more subdued, it isn’t overwhelmed. Hops add a grassy note. Tobacco and smoke are here, too.”

Overall: “This seems like a beer that might be deceptive if you don’t look at the ABV content first. It has almost no alcohol heat/flavor, and its light body makes you think you’re drinking a much more easy-going beer. That said, it’s very straightforward.”
