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 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.

Sample at O’Brien’s. Man, the coffee in this is so freaking good, the blend is so complex, probably the best coffee I have ever smelled. I could just smell this beer, it is so delicious. Flavor is also dominated by roasted coffee, with side notes of milk chocolate, nuts, and light vanilla. Creamy mouth feel, with the abv completely hidden. Damn good.

750ml bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of strong coffee, a lot of roasted malts, some chocolate, a little dough, and some light bitterness. Flavor very, very strong of coffee with a good Imperial stout under it. Smooth texture. A great beer.
