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.

One of my go-to beers. I love the roasty flavors of coffee and dark chocolate. Complex and silky smooth on the mouth. You better enjoy coffee to love it, but even if you don;t it should rate up there with the best Imperial Stouts.

Pours a thick black with a very small dark brown head. Aroma is obvious of coffee with a notes of chocolate and cream. First sip doesn’t surprise because it matches the aroma. It does suprise in the fact that it is so smooth and heavy. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this.

Chilly weather put me in the mood to not wait any longer. Mighty chocolaty, but in an awesomely good way. Just blends with all the richness - is sweet, but the sweet is not too intense and blends with the bitterness - just a supremely cohesive beer that I drained all too quickly. I did want to savor it,but alas ..

BillWyce (1015) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2009
Poured black with a small, dark tan head. Nice coffee aroma with a chocolate undertone. Very smooth on the tongue. Primary flavor is, as expected, coffee, but with a lingering chocolate note and a slight grainy taste too. Excellent.

This is probably one of the best beers you could ever hope to enjoy, hints of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and whatever other incredible flavors Founders decided to add. This is the best beer (in my opinion) they have to offer.

Pours a deep black with a dark tan head. great lacing. Huge nose of coffee and dark chocolate. Thick body and feel, silky smooth. Bigtime flavor with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, hops, alcohol, and oatmeal. This is a serious stout, and having it for breakfast would make lunchtime into bedtime. Bravo.

DalzAle (2026) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Bottle. Pour was dark black with a little brown head. Aroma was rich, smoky and a little chocolaty. Flavor was that full bodied coffee, vanilla, smooth malts and a little spicy on the finish. A very good imperial coffee stout, but I’m not sure if I agree that it should be rated as high as it currently is

12oz bottle courtesy of styles. Good chocolate and oatmeal aromas. Black body with tan head. Had a good creamy chcoclate flavor with some oatmeal in the mix. Smooth enjoyable stout on the palate. Thanks Chris.

downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2009
Bottle. Almost black in colour, with a tight tan head. Massive black coffee aroma with a touch of bitter chocolate in the background. Flavour was also dominated by espresso coffee, with some charred malts, more chocolate and and a bitter, warming finish. A great stout for those who enjoy coffee.
