Bottle at SinH4’s Goodbye Event. Aaah, those sweet roasty malt notes, coffee and chocolate and vanilla. Well balanced and very drinkable for such a heavy beer. Beautiful!

Pours black with a thin tan head. A strong coffee aroma, perfect for a breakfast stout. A very smooth beer with a good coffee taste, some earthy notes and a slight alcohol finish but nothing to what the abv would suggest. A great beer

12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 11/22/2014. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toasted oats, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee/chocolate, and earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toasted oats, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Good amount of roasted coffee and herbal hop bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toasted oats, dark bread, light smoke/char, and herbal/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee/chocolate, and earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely incredible imperial coffee stout. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts, coffee/chocolate, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. An insanely enjoyable and delicious offering as usual.

Pitch black with a one finger high, beigebrown head. A lot of lacing stays on the glass.
Small bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass to the head.
Nose: Coffee, espresso, dark chocolate, cacao powder, oak, raisin, ash, molasses, dark syrup and caramel malt.
Taste: Dark fruit, plum, dark chocolate, ash, brown sugar, tobacco, wood, roasted malt, espresso, dark brewed coffee - a lot of great coffee!
Body: Full body with light carbonation. Great bitterness. Dry ending. Complex body with a smooth, silky feeling.
ABV: 8.3% and it’s so great hidden! This is like a cup of cold, colgrew coffee. So tasty!
This is a masterpiece! I would have this any morning for breakfast :)

WOW is this great. Incredible coffee and chocolate taste. Very bitter, even for a stout. My new favorite stout of all time.
