Pours a used motor oil black with a scorched-gravy-in-the-bottom-of-the-frying-pan brown head. Looking through the glassware, where the head leans against the inside, that scorched brown color takes on a reddish hue. Freshly ground coffee, dried red fruit, cigar leaf, and chocolate are all noted in the aromas. Thick, yet not chewy mouthfeel. Cherry and tobacco dominate the flavors. Bitter coffee expresses itself aggressively as well. Now this is an imperial stout!

Crowler @ CCB, split with Meadme. Couleur noire huile de moteur, col léger moka. Arôme au bouquet puissant faisant le plein de malt, café et grillé. Palais est épais et met bien en avant les 11%. Plein de café, grillé pointe chocolatée, épais et liquoreux. Pas mal de sucre presque de mélasse résiduelle avec un café qui est un peu surfait.

Bottle shared from Craig at Butler’s house. Pours very dark brown with some ruby hints. Mocha foam on top. Aroma is lots of coffee, dark chocolate, slight vanilla. Flavor follows and is slightly sweet with lots and lots of dark chocolate. Full bodied. Really a super nice beer. Thanks so much, Craig!

Dark brown, sweet, nice bitterness...arguably smells like a colada. Very sweet, rich gooey coffee and sugar character. Very good.

22 oz bottle. (Non barrel aged 5/2014 release) Caffe Americano. Wow, talk about a shit ton of coffee. It’s like an espresso milkshake. Slight cream and sweetness. Fantastic.

Somewhere between a 2 and 4oz draft pour at SAVOR 2015’s Saturday night session. Poured a black-brown color with a pretty small dark tan head. Aroma is tons of roasted malts, lots of coffee, vanilla. Woody roasted notes, smooth booze, vanilla, roast and chocolate.
