COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Stout with Coffee Added On a pilgrimmage for immortal craft beer we tripped on these heavenly coffee beans -- threw them in and created damn good aromas, a thick fudge-like body, pitch black color and obviously only made it in limited amounts. And the taste.... furthermore Jesus!

Thick black pour, mocha head with a nice, glass coating appearance and some decent lacing. Aroma of smoke, coffee, burnt caramel, coffee and chocolate. Flavor has a slightly more oily, charred presence along with more coffee, booziness and a good helping of dark fruit and piney hops. Thick syrupy,creamy feel on entry, slightly drier, syrupy feel after that with a lightly chalky finish and light to medium strength slightly sharp carbonation. Good stuff, complex and flavorful, has a nice boozy warmth without tasting too boozy in the taste or smell and tons of roast, coffee and just the right amount of smoke and hops to keep it interesting. Tasty for sure, but at $9/12oz., not a repeat buy, cut that by 1/2 or 2/3 and I might think about it. Too many better beers for less.

AWISLguy (2530) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2016
12oz bottle from Discount in Waukesha for my 300th impy stout. Poured black with a brown head with excellent lacing. Aroma has roast, bakers chocolate and espresso with some alcohol. Taste is of thick sweet malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Yum! Full bodied with a creamy, smooth texture. Little carbonation and the blend is very well done. Definite alcohol presence. Boozy was at times a plus and times distracting. Finishes thickly sweeter than bittersweet, with length. Very nice one! 15.2

#1300. Aroma is wonderful, roasted malt, fresh coffee, booze, some chocolate, some smoke. Appearance is black, light brown head, poured relatively thick. Taste is roast, fresh coffee grounds, very robust, chocolate, smoky, real good. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy body, light almost non-existent carbonation, robust malt and coffee aftertaste. Overall, this one is quite tasty.

Black and oily, 375ml bottle. Extremely toasty nose. Almost smells burnt whoa. Fudge but a lot of charcoal, burnt tastes. A little coffee. Ugh. Only redeemer is it’s stout.

northropfrye (3244) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 31, 2016
On tap at El Bait Shop, Des Moines. Dark body brown head nice lacing. Fantastic Cocoa aroma. Roasty. A touch of coffee but I wouldn’t call this a coffee stout really as it leans more toward the sweet side than bitter. Rich. Really fantastic imperial stout
