Soft ,but intoxicating deep roasted coffee aroma, hoping that it gets stronger and richer as it warms,it doesn’t,more alcohol comes through instead,taste is mellow blend of almost rich malt and fresh roasted mountain coffee bean,plenty of coffee bitterness in the finish. Had the potential to be one of the best,just didn’t have enough malting to handle that alcohol,and turned out to good not great

Bottle shared by pepsican. Poured a hazy brown color with a brownish head. Attractive aromas of coffee and creamy milk chocolate. Medium bodied and delicately sweet. Soft, creamy mouth feel with mocha, roast, vanilla, and caramel flavors. This was a very good beer. Better than I had expected.

Bottle as a bonus from abents. Thanks! Pours dark, dark brown and basically black with a short lived light beige head. Smell is sweet, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is nice and chocolate like with a touch of bourbon character and a nice coffee flavor as well. Very balanced coffee, bourbon, chocolate and vanilla flavors with a bit of bitterness. Semi rich body with medium, to slightly prickly carbonation. Could be a touch richer, and the alcohol shows up a touch as well, but overall, a fantastic beer.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 Holy amazing beer batman. This came from noncaloric...what a friggin beer. Purs a nice dark brown color with hints of dakr red. A very thin espresso like head. Aroma well damn this one has it all. Coffee, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, light roasted malt, and even some dark fruit notes. The flavor, and wow what a flavor it is, is full of smooth and delicious coffee, great undertones of bourbon, oak, vanilla and chocolate. My god how do I get a case of this stuff. OMG. Wow.

Sampled compliments of Pepsican. I’ve got to get back to Wisconsin to get a whole lot of this. This has an amazing fresh coffee aroma; just having a glass of this on the table is like sitting next to a percolator in the church basement. The flavor is wonderful with some nice oakiness right up front and a wonderful bitter coffee ad great chocolate flavors. Not a trace of alcohol and this has got to be the best coffee beer I’ve ever tasted. It’s like drinking a nicely carbonated iced coffee, just not as watery

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a dark, dark chocolate brown with a small creamy off-white head that hangs on as a cap for a while with plenty of carbonation feeding the head. Lacing is pretty good. Personally, I think the aroma is spectacular. It’s got the freshly roasted coffee scents from the normal coffee stout but with a great balance of bourbon in the mix. The taste has a much more aggressive bourbon presence with a strong boozy kick up front. The roasted coffee and dark malts form a strong backbone but then give way to a big bourbon aftertaste that burns for quite a while after each sip. The mouthfeel is slic and a bit oil with plenty of bourbon notes and a soft carbonation that tingles the tongue. The bourbon is a bit overpowering the taste for this beer though the aroma is world class in my opinion. I probably prefer CW’s Coffee Stout to this, but I definitely enjoyed this beer.

Black pour with a small off white head. Aroma is rich coffee and chocolate with a bit of bourbon. Flavor has quite a bit of all of that. The chocolate and coffee really stand out and taste great. A bit of caramel, vanilla, booze, and just a touch of bitterness round everything out. This finishes slightly creamy, rich yet its easy to get through one. Yum!

The first of three imperial stouts that i tasted last night: Poured a deep reddishbrown colour with a little bit of blackness toward the bottom. Beautiful nose- espresso, bourbon and chocolate perfectly blended in as one. Taste is rich and complex- cream, whiskey with a hint of coconut and dark chocolate. A really nice brew from CW."

12 oz. bottle - Poured dark brown with creamy tan head. Aroma - strong bourbon, peruvian coffee and roasted malt. Flavor - Damn!!, this beer has great coffee flavor and bourbon is also evident. Similar to Devil Over A Barrel by Tyranena except less coffee aroma. Palate - medium mouthfeel with decent carbonation. Finish is long with alcohol burn. Overall - I liked this beer except for the strong bourbon taste that lingers.
