A strong Imperial Stout that is hard to come by. It’s also coffee flavored, so it’s easy to drink.

Healthy head, dark brown-black. Smooth texture. Has a coffee/root beer hybrid flavor. Burnt aroma. The coffee really brings up the rear nicely.

Bottle from Lee Discount Liquor, Las Vegas
Black color with medium sized head. Aroma of cold coffee. Dry mouthfeel, less strong than expected; flavor of stale pot coffee with some bold resiny hops.
Coffee beer? Maybe not a great idea.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Vintage 2011 A: Pours a deep brown with good clarity where allowed. Little to no head formation with a solid sheet of latte surface foam which doesn’t stick around. No lacing. S: Sweet, licorice, esters, light coffee. Very soft coffee. Smells like it fermented a little warm. T: Hmmm. Pretty much tastes like a poorly crafted imperial stout. Very sweet. Hints of not bitter, but sharpness. Au cont-rare: the beer is okay to drink, but nothing special. M: Medium body for the style, low carbonation. Leaves mouth without resonance. O: On par with mactarn and pyramid’s offerings: forgettable. Serving type: bottle 03-30-2011

Bottle - pours pitch black with thick sustaining tan head. Nose of roasted coffee, malt, and chocolate. Taste is initially of malt then completely dominated by coffee. perfect for coffee lovers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

raphael (839) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2013
alcohol, licorice, dark chocolate. hard to coax a dark khaki head that faes quickly, well balanced flavor, roast malt/coffee most assertive but still not dominant sharing tongue space with resin, alcohol and dried plums. has its own identity in the mouth, lighter than expected but still full. slightly sticky finish

ReggieDunlap (2927) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Pours dark brown with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma has roastiness and light coffee...a bit boring and one dimensional. Flavor has a cheap caramely note, some coffee, and mild burnt bitterness. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with a burnt/bitter dry finish.

dmac (3754) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 17, 2013
22oz bomber shared with Ed5388. Poured a solid black medium density body under a foamy beige head. Aroma of cola, sweet dark chocolate, earth, slight alcohol and burnt vanilla extract, wet raisin and dates, burnt marshmallows. Creamy body with average carbonation. Flavor of chocolate, dark toast, marshmallow and some freeze dried coffee. Okay.
