The coffee lover’s consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.

kappldav123 (5917) - GERMANY - APR 27, 2009
The bottle looks great, the beer in the glass also. Starts malty and very dry. Notes of strong black coffee and liquorice. Prickly-strong finish, also scratchy. Really good beer!

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 25, 2009
Excellent brew, poured very thick black with deep caramel colored head. Aroma gave strong coffee and chocolate tones. Tasted of really sweet chocolate with a very complimentary coffee/espresso flavor. Almost good enough to have in the morning!

monkeychugg55 (1031) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2009 Pours black as outer space with short lived light brown head. Smells like coffee, with a hint of coffee and a touch of coffee. Also some roasty malt and chocolate in there. Flavor is smooth with chocolate malt upfront, fading into coffee bitterness. Pretty good. Might start drinking this before work in the morning.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2009
[1938-20090110] 355mL bottle. Sweet chocolate coffee grounds aroma with dark wood notes. Black body with a quick dark brown head. Slightly bitter coffee grounds continues in the flavour with lots of sweet chocolate. Full body. Very delicious coffee and chocolate notes, great balance between the two.

beerandIT (300) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2009
Pours dark black with a brownish dark head. Beautiful coffee on the nose, chocolate, oatmeal and toffee. I could see having this for breakfast sometime. Full bodied. Nice and balanced if that is what you require from a big stout yes it is possible with this beer. Coffee on the front with the palate with really everything else in the nose tucked away in there. You also get oatmeal in the aftertaste as well. Wonderful stout and very highly recommended.

MeisterBrew (138) - Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA - APR 10, 2009
UPDATED: APR 14, 2009 Bottle. Pours black with a decent size tan head. Aroma; unbelievable. Espresso, chocolate, and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is heavy on espresso, bitter chocolate rounds it out. Fantastic stout. I love it! So much better than Youngs. I just wish it was available locally.

JoeTheYounger (1182) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - APR 8, 2009
Very black with fresh coffee smell. Has some chocolaty aroma hints as well. Strong espresso taste that’s not too bad. Very good, but a little thin for a stout in my opinion.

zizzybalubba (1811) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2009
UPDATED: APR 13, 2009 On tap at Coasters. Pours black, color of motor oil with a 1/4 inch caramel head. Light hop aroma with hints of coffee. The aroma does not begin to prepare you for the flavors you are about to taste. Big coffee flavor with dark chocolate dominates. Finish lingers and is pleasant. Bested only by Speedway Stout and Espresso Oak Aged Yeti as far as coffee beers go.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2009 This was one of the first imperial stouts that i ever tried, and got me into drinking them and trying to find more i like. Could definitely see myself drinking this in the morning instead off coffee if i had an awful hangover or wanted to start my day with a drink.
