I said it last night and it wasnít the beer talking. THIS IS THE BEST COFFEE STOUT I HAVE EVER HAD, HANDS DOWN! And being this is my favorite style, Iíve had a lot of them. Served from cask last evening at the Beer & Beast at Acadia Cafe. Smoked duck was great, this beer was even better. Pours black with oily tan head. Nose is heavy espresso and almost a pine scent. Mouthfeel is silky smooth and dense, like a good Imp Stout should be. Taste. Taste is amazing. Complex and layered with big espresso off the bat, fading to roasted malts and a hint of vanilla and ending with a little dryness. The brewers were there and were delightfully friendly chaps that make me happy to be a part of the Twin Cities craft beer scene. I cannot wait until Firkin Fest to have some of the last cask of this amazing beer. Cheers.

Pours deep black/brown with huge dark tan head. If you want a coffee stout, this is it. With whole coffee beans in the cask, the beer is literally coffee, with some beer flavor. Aroma is big chocolate and darkly roasted coffee. Taste is like drinking a huge dark roast coffee, with some chocolate, toffee, and a huge bitter finish from the coffee. Easily the best coffee stout Iíve ever had.

750ml bottle to snifter. Pours oily black brown with a nice khaki tan tight foamy head that slowly fades to a sudsy film and collar along with subtle lacing. Aroma is smooth strong coffee and roasted malt and some hidden bakers chocolate and soy. Taste is great bitter velvet bakers chocolate and coffee along with soy and roasted malt. Palate is full rich and oily along with a chalky dry finish. This is fantastic! Really smooth and delicious!

From bottle, courtesy of Joe N. Nice coffee aroma, rich and malty with molasses, chocolate, roasted barley, and sweet alcohol vapors. Dark black opaque with tan lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts and stays sweet, rich with coffee, chocolate, cherry wood, roasted barley, and alcohol - fusel but not rough. Bitter nutty finish with lingering sweetness. Alcohol warming with light bitter after.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 Freaking love this beer! Lots of heavy coffee aromas up front with a mild finishing of alcohol. Nice caramel and mild roasted malt and solid creamy palate! (Best on Tap!)

On tap at Happy Gnome 3Oct2012, Side by side with breakfast stout I think most people would be hard pressed to find a difference, this ones nose is more anise to it, and the mouth is a little thinner than breakfast stout, but its a wonderful brew with a touch more heat for the colder MN winters, really good stuff.
