2012 bottle. Pours black with light carbonation leaving just a small slick of bubbles on top. Swirling the beer does bring out some brown bubbles along with an enticing aroma of cold-processed coffee and a bit of dark red berry. The flavor has quite a bit going on for it: an over-baked coffee cake (maybe with some burned bits on top) provides the foundation for moderately-bitter coffee (still toddy-style) and roast malt acidity. I really cant pick out the figs, and the coconut only contributes in the finish which is sort of a coconut milk-coffee. This is a well-balanced imperial stout, neither too sweet nor dry. The coffee tends to dominate the flavor for me as opposed to the malt or huge alcohols of other imperials. Its a nice beer but not worth the $20 I paid for it.

Nice light brown creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich, espresso, dark malts, ashtray, chili, grass, licorice, dark sugar, dark fruits, caramel. Taste is slightly dry roasted, espresso, grass, roasted grain, burnt caramel, oak, hops, dark sugar, licorice, chocolate, cardboard. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Nice.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle from 16th Street Liquor, West Vancouver; vintage 2012
Black color, with small brownish head, just a few sparse large bubbles. Strong coffee smell, part quality coffee, part coffee drags, a bit pungent (its a quality), then followed by dark chocolate and pink pepper. The mouthfeel is weaker than expected, and rather dry; roasted malt flavor, coffee (not impressed here), ashes, and a slight peppery note.
Not cohesive at all, a bit dusty/ashy too; its rather expensive and not delivering enough in return; I should not have gotten this bottle.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, dark fruits, light coconut, light spices, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Smooth texture. A solid beer.

Caramel, coffee, alcohol, raisin, fig. Dark brown, minimal head. Light bitter. Medium body, sticky, soft, bitter, minimal evolution. Massive flavor note, yet lacks the complexity of a quadrupel. Nice beer for a cold day.

Thoroughly enjoyed this. The coffee is, for me, exactly like you get from the cold-drip process, earthy, rich and mellow. The sweetness carries this on a gentle carbonation. And the chocolate keeps it all together. Im wondering if I should put on in a cool dark place to see if this gets batter with time

750 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99 (Jan 2013). Pours dark brown in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, some sweeter malt, coffee, dark fruit, fig, some earthy notes. Interesting, but I would not seek this out again.

Very nice beer. It has a great roast on the nose and a lovely look. Not the thickest stout but the flavours are beautiful and rolls nicely on the palate. Solid.

Pours a thin black with large foamy tan head. Aroma is mostly coffee, some chocolate and a mild fruity (fig?) aroma. Taste is mostly heavily roasted coffee, some dark bitter chocolate and dark red fruits. Decent stuff.
