Bottle. Nose is a pungent roasted coffee. Almost burnt. Almost smells acidic. Pour is pitch black with minimal head. Taste is rich and smooth. A subtle coffe bitterness balances the slight sugary sweetness. Taste starts to develop an acidity as it warms. Overall very good but I think I just don’t care for this particular coffee.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: A deep brown pour with a bubbly, beige top that skims down to a thin layer quickly. Aroma of very heavy char, roasted, oily coffee beans, smoked wood chips, & a touch of deep, bitter cacao nibs. Flavor has lots of the same heavy smoke, roast, & char, pretty characteristic of the Brunch/Geek line-up so far. Burnt coffee beans, overly roasted malts, charcoal, bitter cocoa beans, & a hint of saltiness in the finish. Overall, it’s good stuff, but the roasted & smoky bitter elements could be toned down to make it great.

Delicious blend. Super dark pour. Aroma was woody, vanilla, and coffee strong. Taste was very smooth with a nice blending of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, and oak. Creamy mouthfeel. Cool blending!

This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a nice looking dark brown close to black color with a thin finger of a white foamy head that dissipated within about a light thirty seconds. Thin lacing stuck around the glass in a nice way.
The smell had a huge roasty coffee, sweet milk chocolate and a light bitter dark chocolate.
The taste was sweet and carried a nice bitter underscore of light roasty coffee and then the chocolate comes back to balance. There’s a slight sweet and sticky chocolate aftertaste that gets kinda slick. There’s a long sweet chocolate finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a surprisingly sessionable feel to it. It’s sweet, sticky, smooth and slick as it coats my tongue.
Overall, I did like this a lot for me as it’s dessert in a bottle. However as an imperialism oatmeal stout, it’s a bit different. Maybe I was expecting something heavier. No worries, still I’d have it again.
