3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Some coffee scent. Tastes not so much that I thought it would. But it’s too little, anyway. The aftertaste is left long the little you know. I had anticipated a jaw popping of coffee flavor but this beer was just thin in flavor unfortunately. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Pour is an almost black brown if that exists. Smells of coffee beans and roasted malts. Taste is of the same but with more of a chocolate taste involved. Very tasty brew that pairs well with shitty ramen noodles.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Flying Saucer Fort Worth. Very dark with a tan head. It gets much better as it warms, the coffee flavor comes out more. Fairly sweet, but not overly so. Great beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Heavy toasted cereal and strong coffee for the malt, moderate herbs and resin for the hops, light earth for the yeast with charcoal and alcohol in the background. Head is small, fizzy/frothy light brown with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly bittersweet. Palate is medium to full, creamy with a soft carbonation. Full and rich, this Stout is an excellent breakfast beer, and has a perfect finish in both flavor and feel.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Oxford beer store. Dark body and nose is dark alcohol and smoke with some toffee notes. Very smooth and well balanced. The coffee and bitterness is aggressive but appropriate for the style. Pretty amazing and wish it wasn't a limited yearly release.

Smells beautiful! Dark Brown to Black in color with a nice creamy, beige foam. Maybe a little bit to light for an Imperial but that just make it more drinkable and very dangerous. Great brew from Laguintas!

One of my personal favorites from Lagunitas by far. It has a chocolaty, coffee aroma. But the head is a smidge foamy but to perfection. The wash down is like a licorice or dark chocolate. Absolutely delicious! I say buy one and share with a friend! Excellent to have over smooth conversation or while contemplating nothing.

This pours a dark brown color with a foamy beige head. The aroma is very malty with hints of bitter hops. The taste is fairly malty with a smooth texture and a lingering cappuccino taste. There is a little bit of a spicy, hop finish. This is a pretty well rounded.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with a beige head.
Smooth chocolate, coffee, some red berries and rosted malt. A bit too thin for a IS, almost bock like mouth feel
