Oatmeal coffee stout. This is a full-bodied beer full of roasty malts and coffee flavors. On pour itís a deep, opaque brown with a creamy mocha head. The nose is all fresh coffee with a touch of chocolate, sweet cream and malt. Tasting up front you get the bitterness of fresh medium roast coffee balanced with a malty sweetness. The mouthfeel is full and smooth, almost a meal in itself. The finish is a touch of hop citrus and coffee; refreshing like an iced beverage on a hot August morning.

Pours black from the tap. Creamy head leaves good lacing. Full chocolate aroma with just enough hop. Flavor is chocolate and expresso. Palate keeps some of the malt sweetness but remains dry and flavorful. Nice.

On tap at Stone, Aroma is Espresso/burnt coffee. Not an iced coffee aroma like some coffee beers, this beer has an actual coffee quality to itís aroma which is great. Thick mouthfeel with some deep chocolate notes, but the predominant flavor is coffee. Which is great if thatís what you are looking for.

Draft. Murky dark brown pour, short lived light tan head. Not that pretty. Lots of coffee, bitter espresso bean, burnt toast, note of chocolate, and moderately sweet. Medium - heavy mouthfeel. I wonder how much caffeine is in this. Enjoyable if you like coffee stout.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 From tap at the Stone Bistro. Pours pitch black with a huge tan head. Aroma is dense toffee coffee. Smooth and dense, yet not offensive. Bitter, dry and solid coffee into a smooth coffee malty light sweet finish. This is cold coffee more than beer, but I like it.8-4-8-4-16=4.0

Growler. Pours hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is dense malty and coffee herbal. Sweet, toasted malty, caramelish and coffee smooth. Smooth malty and coffee finish.8-4-8-4-16=4.0

Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Black pour with a quickly fading tan head. Aroma is fresh coffee, roast, oatmeal, and chocolate. Taste is coffee, oatmel, roast, chocolate, hop bitterness, a bit of raisin, and some light sweetness. Even, creamy mouthfeel. Great beer! Not sure if tagging it as an imperial was the right call but itís a nice roasty stout with a dominant coffee presence and some darker fruit notes lurking under the hops.
