This one poured a dark cola brown with a medium tan head. Aroma was lots of dark deep roasted coffee, dark chocolate and lightly burnt malts with a decent scent of booze. Flavor was the same but a little mmore intense. The liquid rounded this one off better than the normal speedway and the booze is hidden pretty well. Have’nt had many better non BA stouts.

Thanks again to Peter Zien and crew for this amazing beer. This Imperial stout pours a deep black color from the tap. A medium sized tan foamy head, with nice retention and good lacing. The aroma is coffee, some more coffee, some chocolate and some vanilla. A full bodied Imperial stout. The malts are roasty, with lots of chocolate and coffee flavors, add on top of that a very smooth mellow coffee flavor. Hints of vanilla at the finish. This is the coffee stout of coffee stouts. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter with some chocolate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of deep roasted barley malt with notes of dry coffee also dominating. Taste is a mix between some deep dry roasted malt notes with bitter and dry coffee notes which almost veers into astringency territory. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Good but almost too extreme on the coffee side which diminish the drinkability.

750ml bottle from a trade, thanks CheapBeerBuzz! @ PBF IX
Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of coffee, roastiness, some hoppiness, espresso, minor fruitness and hoppiness. Taste is roasty and chocolatey with loads of coffee, espresso, some hints of dark ripe fruitness and cherry. Finish is roasty, bitter and very dry with some espresso and dark chocolate notes. Quite a coffee overload, not as perfectly balanced as the regular version.

750ml bottle shared by Brad. Wow. Mellow, especially for the ABV. Choco-coffee aroma. Perfect mouthfeel, very impressive, completely perfect on the palate. Big coffee, refined molasses awesomeness. World Class coffee beer all the way.
