Share courtesy of beernads. Cheers, Hunter! Pours a nice stout brown color with an off-tan head. Nose is some nice roast, some coffee and espresso followed by some earth and ash. Flavor is similar with roast, coffee, baker’s chocolate, earth, and slight ash. Medium in body and a nice stout overall.

from a bottle it pours dark brown with a slight head. The aroma is of coffee and the taste is of coffee with bitter overtones that lingers on the palate

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Jet black with tan head
Aroma: Nice bouquet of fresh brewed coffee
Taste: Strong coffee flavor that dominates the profile with a bitter roast on the finish. Some molasses and a hint of licorice as well
Overall: If you are a coffee infused beer fan than you’ll like this but if not this may be too much for you

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with red-brown head. Aroma of mocha, vanilla and molasses. Flavors are much the same with some hints of licorice. Coffee ads a slightly acrid note, but also supplies some necessary dryness to offset a very malty profile. Alcohol is on the low side for an imperial, but on the high side for a foriegn style stout. Overall, very well done - would be more interesting if it spent some time in a wood barrel.
