Our quest to brew the quintessential coffee beer began over a cupping with the coffee gurus from Richmondís Lamplighter Roasting Company. Their Ethiopia Sidamo coffee was masterfully roasted to highlight the single origin beanís bright, crisp body and distinctive blueberry undertones, making it harmonize beautifully with our Russian Imperial Stout. May this beer warm your spirits in these brisk winter months.

Bottle. Dark black pour, minimal head. Big time coffee, roast, oak. Some bitterness but alcohol is hardly detectable. Lots of coffee. A lot. Good if you like bitter coffee.

dmac (5635) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Bottle from Bluedog. Poured a medium to thicker body dark black with a creamy super light tan head. Aroma seems to be older, brown paper bag, old nut shells, sugary sweetness, burnt toast and more sweetness. Flavor of coffee cups, sugar, light hint of coffee, earth, touch of pepper and bad chocolate muffins. Medium to slightly fuller body and softer carbonation.

CloakedDagger (1974) - - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle 75 cl. Pours an almost opaque black only with a very vague reddish hue, head is creamy beige. Sweet vanillaish coffee aroma. Rich, sweet body, roasty, bitter chocolate and then fairly well integrated coffee accents. Finish is a little boozy. Nice if a little to the sweet side. 060916

metalhead0043 (207) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2016
750 ml from Total Wine (Springfield, VA) for 14 bucks. Pours black with a small tan-colored head. Aroma is some coffee with fruit underneath. Taste is some chocolate with coffee on the back end. Body is a bit thinner than I like in an imperial stout, slightly creamy though. Overall a solid imperial stout but not amazing.

This might be one of the best stouts Iíve ever had. Itís absolutely delicious. This is like dessert in a bottle. Itís sweet, rich and decadent. Itís like a piece of devils food cake soaked in fresh roasted coffee. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Taste is like liquid chocolate cake. Absolute rich sweet milk chocolate, coffee, and a slight vanilla taste. So rich, but not cloying at all. The alcohol is non-existent, and itís dangerously drinkable. I sat on my patio with my wife, drank it slow and loved every second. Awesome stuff, highly recommended. Cheers!

not quite as good as the aged version, but still delicious. Pours very dark brown with an average head that fades fast. The coffee and bitter, roasted malt make the aroma smell great. The flavor doesnít disappoint, and adds some coffee and a little lemon hoppy finish. Very good.
