Beautiful pitch black pour with a thick brown head. Delicious coffee flavor on top of a strong porter, but an amazing coffee aftertaste.

SlovakSniper (4984) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2016
Un liquide épais et une mousse qui se résorbe en laissant quelques traces derrière elle. Au nez, café fraîchement torréfié et fève entière écrasée qui n’empêchent pas la mise en place des malts. Au goût, chocolat et caramel combattent le café de façon pacifique. Le mariage est réussi. Tout cela est nuancé par un grain malté rôti costaud, des épices et de la terre (houblons?). Le corps est soyeux et pétillant. La finale est amère par le café mais aussi par les houblons. Un impérial porter qui ne s’adresse pas aux mauviettes.

A very nice coffee porter. Pours a deep brown-black with a brown head. Smells great, coffee and vanilla. Taste is vanilla to start, with a bit of bitter coffee in the finish. Had in the bottle.

22 oz bottle shared by Amy. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have big dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, earthy bitterness, perhaps a touch thin for the big roasted coffee character, but tasty, I get a hint of dark berries, but mostly coffee. I have had this before and didn’t rate it so I was happy to have it again.

Bottle shared by Amy pour opaque dark brown with thin tan head. Nose big coffee, chocolate and malt but mostly coffee. Taste dark roast coffee, dark fruit, and some milk chocolate but mostly coffee. I like coffee.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2016
22 oz bottle, 5/30/12. Dark brown with a tan head. Nose is caramel, peanut, coffee, raisin and hay. Creamy medium body with a tingle. Taste is stale chocolate, caramel, coffee and fig. I’m guessing the coffee has faded quite a bit since fresh. The result though is beautifully melded and has held up better than many impy stouts I’ve cellared.

Aroma - coffee, alcohol, roast, and dark chocolate Appearance - pitch black body with a dark brown head that slowly fades to a foam Taste - roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, and a carmalized sugar. Palate - full body, texture is slick, average carbonation, long astringent roast ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dark tan head atop a perfectly black brew... Nice lacing and retention.. Good coffee as expected meshes with some dark cocoa and just enough malty residuals to deliver the nose and make it interesting. Flavors are all there, but sorta fall short.. nothing really crosses any benchmark.. light cocoa and decent coffee bean flavors.. there could possibly be a bit more of everything and especially some maltiness that really delivers the malts and the beans. Body is light given the ABV... needs more UUMMMPPPH! Despite my above negatives, this is a pretty damn good brew.. Big Boned Coffee Porter for less than $8? Needs work, but I will buy again.

Bottle shared by a friend. Darkest brown pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of coffee, malt and some chocolate. Malty and chocolatey flavor with some caramel before a slight coffee finish.
