12oz bottle thanks to minorthreat .Jet black with a light mocha creamy head that remains throughout the drink. Medium roast coffee aroma with a nice balance of oak, vanilla and bit of booze, fair amount of chocolate too - well balanced. At first the palate there was a huge vegetable note from out of left field, but once it opened up for about 15 minutes things got much better. Moderate carbonation and moderate body, slightly boozy, becomes very dry with a nice oak, chocolate and vanilla ending with some booze to warm you up.

From Archer Liquors, Chicago, pours a thick dark black color. Nose is malt, with strong coffee and licorice with a hint of whiskey. Taste is quite complex with a biting whiskey taste with a fruity background. Finish is bitter and the whiskey and fruity alcohol flavors linger. A very different Imperial. Quaff Score 7 / 10
