Tap at hops and pie. Clegar dark brown with a small buy thick brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, light dark fruit and chocolate. Flavor is the same. Medium to full bodied, smooth with some warmth on the end.

A really well crafted brew. Totally impactful coffee flavor with a smooth palate. Great dark appearance with a high alcohol content but not too much that you can taste it.

On tap at the taproom. Pours a dark brown with nice creamy tan finish that lasts. Huge coffee bean aroma and chocolate, booze. Thick mouthfeel with a strong roast, and intense coffee with nice boozy finish> Really amazing stuff.

Sikash (230) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2014
On tap at Avery. Pours a dark black color with a fizzy tan head into a taster glass. Aroma is super heavy on roasted coffee with some earthy chocolate undertones. Although it smells almost like a fresh cup of brewed coffee. The coffee flavor is ever present in the first sip however you get the nice malty boozy flavors as well. You really cannot even notice the hoppiness of it and the alcohol is hidden very well. It has an overall velvety slick mouthfeel that I greatly enjoy and a good carbonation level. Overall this is a phenominal beer.

Had on draft, never thought i’d get to try this- been a high want for years! .. . deep black, mild foam .. . espresso craziness .. . slick full mouth, mild heat in the throat .. . just a fantastic beer, and looking forward to the bottles that will be released soon! .. . . Embiggens is a perfectly cromulent word.

DesertDevil (456) - Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2014
On tap at the Attic. Huge coffee aroma - seriously, the dark-roast coffee is so strong I can smell it from the snifter sitting a foot away on the table - with bold roasted barley, and some phenolic smoked BBQ. Flat obsidian in color with a light brown head. Incredibly rich taste of espresso, dark chocolate, molasses, a little anise and tree bark, and vanilla beans. Not surprisingly, it’s super hot, but it doesn’t hurt the beer at all. Another amazing imperial stout from Avery.

JPDurden24 (1495) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JAN 19, 2014
On tap at the Attic. Dark brown, almost black pour with a tan head. Lots of espresso coffee in the nose. Alcohol is hidden well. Chocolate, coffee and light bitter finish. Damn good!

Tap. Pours black with tan head. Aromas of strong coffee! Very rich flavors, espresso, not much heat, really good and easy. Great beer.

HonkeyBra (3115) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Sampled many, many times, finally rating it. Pours a black, sludgy, and thick with a small tan head. Aroma of espresso, sweet malts, dark fruits, lots of booze and sherry like sweetness. Cocoa, dark chocolate, burnt sugar notes as well. Tobacco, oak, wet wood. This is obviously huge. Flavor is big, sweet, rich, massive. Overall, though, perhaps against all odds, it ends up going together nicely. As long as it’s a small pour, this is nice. Big mouthfeel. Finishes boozey and sweet.
