Good stout. Aroma is all coffee. Flavor is nice stout based enhanced with coffee and to a lesser extent figs. Not much roastiness in the stout flavor. Quite good, but as a stout, not an imperial. A little thin and lacking in mouthfeel to be the latter. As a stout, A; as an imperial stout, B+. Nice coffee taste lingers tho! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown, stacks of coffee, no fig, just raw harsh coffee. Really no balance.

JaBier (4887) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2013
2011 bottle sample at the beer vs. wine tasting at Aficionado’s on 2/23/13. Pours darkest brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and some dark fruit. Flavor starts with dark fruit, then moves to coffee and chocolate before a roasty coffee finish. Didn’t catch the coconut, but it’ll interesting to see if it’s present in the bottle I bought.

MacBoost (1276) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Pours a deep black with a small tan head. Nicely crafted aromas of coffee, heavy roast, Hawaiian tropic suntan lotion. Very nice. First sip reveals coffee up front, roast in the middle and a splash of coconut on the back end. Medium carbonation. Drinks pretty good, but a little on the low side for imperial stout. More like a foreign stout. Not getting any figs. Not fucken bad, bro.

Coffee, Fig, Coconut Oatmeal Stout. While this sounds like it should be divine I didn’t dig it for two reasons. One is that this is one of those stouts that is super dry and super super ashy, with very little sweetness or malt character to balance. The other is that it smells and tastes like burnt coffee. I couldn’t get any fig, coconut or oatmeal character and didn’t get very far before giving up on this incredibly astringent ashy beer.

DuffMan (6745) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle, shared with our neighbours. Hearty very dark brown pour with a dense but low tan head. Aroma is strong coffee and blackened malts, some hints of a vanilla-like sweetness (this may be the coconut, but it doesn’t smell like actual coconut). Full bodied, lovely malts with a dominant coffee flavour, some bitter chocolate too. The figs show up as a gentle sweetness late in the palate after the beer had warmed substantially. No coconut at all really, but the other flavour elements are very bold. Very tasty.

RumRunner101 (770) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2013
Black pour with a quick dissipating brown head. Aroma is lots of roast - coffee, toast, very subtle dark fruits. Medium bodied, lighter mouth feel than expected. Flavour is coffee dominant, with burnt malts, vanilla, coconut. Finish is dark, bitter coffee. I actually like the fact that this stout isn’t really big, or sticky, which lends to the other flavours and makes it easier to drink. Quite enjoyable.
