Pours jet black with a thin khaki head. Significant amount of legs dripping down the glass. Aroma is very boozy with minimal coffee in the background. Small amount of bourbon and vanilla as well as toffee. Taste is boozy upfront with astringent coffee flavors in the middle followed by subtle chocolate, vanilla and caramel flavors in the finish. Kind of a harsh character to it at this point. Likely aging will subdue this aspect. Mouth feel is thick and viscous. Overall, a nice beer but not well-balanced this young. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A delicious beer. Pours a thick black with small dark brown head. Big coffee and lactose aromas as well as dark fruits and chocolate. For a beer this big the alcohol is very well masked. Big coffee and chocolate flavours and vinous sherry flavours as well. A nice warmth as it makes its way down to your belly. Awesome.

Dark black in color with tan beige head... Aroma of dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, caramel, booze... Flavor is rich decadent dark chocolate, vanilla, and espresso... Roasted malts with lingering alcohol burn on finish... Really nice, but a little hot... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Like the previous review, I am surprised to see this is rated so highly. Black of course. Thick and heavy palate and almost no carbonation, which is ok for an imperial stout. The whiskey is prominent in the flavor and aroma, and mostly overwhelms even the coffee. Sweet, some flavor of green pepper, and a little soy sauce.

Theydon_Bois (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Keg at Churchill’s, San Marcos, 14/11/14. Pitch black with a decent tan swirl. Nose is sweet coffee notes, tiramisu mix, brown sugars, light roast, booze notes, sweet all round. Taste comprises big coffee cake notes, light mineral tones, spice, chocolate, coffee fudge, earthy roast. Full bodied, oily feel - slightly cloying but not overbearingly so, sweet licks tempered with a little roasty charr in the close. Solid stuff for the ABV, a little on the sweet side as you may well expect from the ABV on display, but a solid coffee infused sipper.

Not quite as good as the Mephistopheles but still a wonderful beer. Loses something with the extra coffee. A little more syrupy and thick, more oil. Some light barrel in here. Black pour with great mocha head and lacing. Milk sweet chocolate here and a sweeter finish. Some booze, and still a lot of bitterness even with the note of sweetness. Tap at Churchkey Avery event.

dogfish120love (1161) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a caramel colored lacing. The aroma is predominantly coffee, chocolate and soy sauce. Finishes with some notable alcohol, but not compared to the ABV

(Backlog) Draft at avery event at blind tiger. #300 imperial stout. Black pour with tan head. Huge roasted, and coffee dominated aroma. Flavors are dark roasted coffee, some lighter dark malts and a bit of warmth.

On tap at extreme beer feat. Really potent coffee nose with bready malts and cocoa. Taste is very sweet and heavy coffee. Intense but pretty good.

From a tap at Ale Arsenal. The pour was black with a strong coffee aroma which the beer had also a big coffee taste and a thick body.* *Lost my notes for this beer today and tried to rate this beer soon as possible from memory.
