Pours black with a minimal khaki head. Smells heavy on coffee and roasted malts. Vanilla and booze in the background. Tastes sweet up front, some hops to balance, and lots of coffee. Vanilla isn’t as heavy in the flavor as I’d hope it was going to be, but it’s there. A little bitter in the aftertaste, where most of the vanilla is. Thick, mouth coating. Good stuff.

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.

Aroma is chocolate, vanilla. Flavor is same plus some burn sugar, green pepper, and a lingering roastyness. Sweet mid-palate but dry on the finish. SUPER!

Not a huge fan of coffee porters, but it won me over. Super mocha/carmely, creamy aroma, absolutely delightful. Color is an impenetrable black with a light amber head. Tastes almost just how it smells, a little more coffee comes through; no boozy flavor whatsoever. Perfect for a wintery beverage to sip on through the morning or night.
