Black with modest brown head / Acidic nose of roast barley and coffee / Medium body, acidity and strong carbonation leading to both weak body and brief, very bitter, finish / Simple flavors of dark roast coffee with notes of caramel and grass / Clumsy.

Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma is sweet of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, molasses, and some vanilla. Flavor is strong of coffee up front which gives way to the chocolate, roasted malts, and vanilla. Not much of a warming on the finish.

The aroma is smooth coffee, cream, chocolate, molasses. The appearance is jet black, tan head. The flavor is coffee, cream, molasses, dark fruit, chocolate (not as much as the aroma.) The finsih is roasty, sweet, light pine hops. medium/thick in body, closer to thick, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good.

12 oz bottle from an expensive ass 6pack purchased at Spirits Point. Poured a pitch black body under an average to large dark beige foamy head. Aroma is like a cup of super sweet coffee, lots of lactose notes, wet burnt toast, some dark fruit in the background. Body is full, thicker and coating with small tight bubbly carbonation and just the slightest touch of heat on the aftertaste. Flavor isn’t as sweet as the aroma and starts off with some seriously bitter dark bakers chocolate, old stale black coffee, wet dark toast, dark fruits (figs, prunes, plums) and a hint of vanilla extract. Solid beer but not liking the price. Weird thing is if this was a $10 4-pack I wouldn’t say a word but a $15 6-pack is tough, I know the math is the same and it’s still $2.50 a bottle but something about a $15 6er is tough to swallow.

Love the sweet chocolate flavor with light to moderate bit of coffee bitterness and flavor. Somewhat over carbonated, took away from the flavor. Enjoyable brew, worth trying!

Subdued aroma, with hints of chocolate. Pours an opaque black, with a full tan head. Delicious roasted flavors blending chocolate and coffee, this comes with a creamy and smooth mouthfeel. This is a solid imperial coffee stout, and I recommend trying it.

Goodgrief (1794) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 9, 2012
On tap at Pinocchio’s. Dark pour, ruby highlights. Very rich flavor, loads of coffee but with a really sharp, sweet finish. Vanilla and a slew of oats present. Pretty decent, but not mind blowingly awesome.

Had at Pony with grandpa. Pours a dark black with tan head. Not too creamy nor too toasty. A nice balance that suits me well.

brigg (517) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 7, 2012
(bottle) Black body and a small reddish-brown brown. Aroma of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, wood, a note of smoke. Full bodied, thick and chewy. Coffee, chocolate flavors; alcohol; sweet syrup flavor mixed with bitter burnt notes. A little more burnt than is to my liking, but not too bad. Good body.
