Pours dark black coffee unclear with a decent creamy tan head...on nitro at Station Taproom. Aroma of light sweet roasted coffee and cream. The flavor of roasted sweet coffee comes in so nicely with chocolate notes on a delicious creamy body.

Bottle. Pours jet black with quick fading tan head. Nose is dark malt, coffee, cacao, hops, jalapeno oil. Tastes choc malty, with a lot of hops, jalapeno peppery flavors, and bitter hops and coffee. This one didn’t work for me.

Cask. Pours deep, dark brown with thick, frothy tan head; good retention and spare lacing. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, earthy hops, faint dark fruit, and light vanilla. Flavor is malt dominate with light hops and fruit esters; heavy coffee taste throughout with a dry, coffee finish. Full body with medium carbonation and warmth.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pitchblack, with a dark brown head.
The aroma is full of roasted coffe and espresso, chocolate, malt, ashes.
Semi-sweet, full bodied, medium bitterness, creamy CO2.
Roasted taste, loads of coffee beans, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, malt. Was hoping for something a little bit more complex, thins out a bit in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Headkeeper: this one pours a very dark brown, but still has a clearness to it. There is a very small light brown head that lingers awhile but leaves little lacing. The aroma is definitely coffee, but not like a cup of coffee. It smells more like a coffee liqueur (like Kahlúa) with a bit of sweetness. Also has some chocolate notes. The taste is very good. Chocolate, roastiness, coffee and a mild sweetness.

Kaffe, kaffe, kaffe men annars var det en god öl men med väldigt mycket kaffe i smaken. Slutsats: kaffe.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a chalice with a nice foamy brownish head. An aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and coffee set in. Had a nice flavoring of coffee and chocolate with a bit of a dry finish on the palate. Definately tasted like a premium imperial stout with coffee accents. It had some roasted notes but definately not overpowering. Just the right amount of coffee and chocolate sweetness put together into this wonderful stout. Definately deserves a repeat performance.

Draft. Pours pitch black with a thick brown head. Smells of coffee, some vanilla, and some mocha. Taste is a coffee and cocoa. A little bit of booze but doesn’t taste the level of 8.9. A solid coffee Imp stout.
