This black in color imperial stout’s aro-ma is lead by coffee and dry roasty notes. Crème Brulè coffee is brewed and added post-fermentation. This killer stout is highly sought after at every tasting we take it to.

Pours a jet black with a foamy tan head. Aroma is coffee, sweet vanilla, and chocolate. Flavor is slightly bitter coffee and roast, some vanilla. Body is a touch thin. Great aroma, underwhelming flavor. Overall enjoyable.

On tap at the brewery. A great pure black color with a frothy dark bubbly head. A big cocoa puff aroma. A nice roasty chocolate feel. The sugary feel like cocoa puffs comes back in the flavor and feel. A little thin but nice. Good stuff.

Growler, shared by devman171, thanks! Black pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is creamy, milky and full of coffee. Flavor is sweet, creamy, with a hint of coffee and loads of caramel. Smooth and well balanced. Easy going and a bit thin for an imperial stout. But if you drink it as a normal stout it’s lovely.

On tap, poured into a balloon snifter. The aroma is a warm creme brulee with a heavy dose of coffee. The beer is a dark, clear cola color with an abundant, off-white head that looks thin with large, soapy bubbles that has moderate retention and okay lace. The taste is a medium high chocolate sweet with a medium bitter burnt. The beer is smooth and lightly creamy with a small bubble, soft fizz, and a medium full body. The flavor is a creamy creme brulee with a light toffee and a warm coffee that finishes with a crispness, a hoppy spice, and notes of java. The finish is of a moderate length and tappers off quickly leaving just a light hint of roasted vanilla in the aftertaste.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, coffee into some burnt sugars, molasses, slight vanilla, touch of dark fruits. Taste was a mix of roast, cocoa powder, dark chocolate into coffee, espresso, slight burnt sugar, toffee, molasses, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter.

Tap at Kuhnhenn. Listed as 8.5%. Black pour with a small creamy head that fades to a nice ring. Aroma is so good. Huge espresso, vanilla, and sweet cream with hint of chocolate syrup and caramel. Tastes awesome too. More roasty than the aroma. Medium roast coffee beans, strong vanilla and cream, some burnt caramel and burnt toast. A hint of chocolate too. Thin body though. If this was thick and creamy it would be up there with my favorites from Kuhnhenn.
