Bottle. Jet black pour. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, rich malt. Very round, full vanilla taste set against a nice, well-balanced porter base. Some chocolate and rich malt. Starts off very smooth, but gives way to some coffee bitterness and leaves a lingering dryness.

Smell of coffee, vanilla, loaded with it, some hops are in there too, and milk chocolate. Upfront it’s quite dry, coffee and vanilla additions seem to carry the beer a lot, and seem to be the main flavour component, more caramel malt than roasted, but still very very good, it’s dry and quite hoppy, super drinkable and very well balanced.

Backlog. 22 oz bottle shared from Applejack. Smooth, rich and earthy with mild coffee notes, vanilla, light crispy bitterness and light caramel. Rich, robust and fucking awesome. Wow.

Sehr dunkel rötlichbraunes Bier mit einer schönen bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch nach viel Kaffee, Röstmalz und Vanille. Geschmack sehr schokoladig, viel Kaffee, eine Menge an Vanille, einfach unglaublich!

A near-perfect coffee imperial stout. Huge chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and caramel flavors, all held together with robust roasted malt and some hops so it’s not TOO sweet. Pretty strong vanilla presence, which I don’t always like but is well balanced by the coffee here. A perfect beer with most desserts or even alone as a nightcap sipper in the wintertime.

Great choice. Delicious coffee bean aroma, made me want to just smell it rather than drink it. Vanilla and coffee flavours very rich and strong.
