superspak (2996) - Michigan, USA - JAN 29, 2015
12 ounce bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, toffee, raisin, plum, light vanilla, and yeast/roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and dark fruit notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, toffee, dark bread, light dark fruit, light vanilla, light char, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, toffee, dark bread, light char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and coffee flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial coffee stout. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and coffee flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

suprchunk (2448) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Black pour. Not much of a head. No lacing. Slight chocolate and malt aroma. Not much coffee. Taste is very fruity with an almost unpleasant twang. Sweet sour finish with a bit of coffee aftertaste. After the twangy bit dissipates.

Luvystypotables (870) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2014
A wonderful aroma of cocoa, chocolate and coffee. A good looking ebony color with a lasting off white head. A slightly sweet taste of cocoa and chocolate would be great on ice cream. Creamy feel with a cocoa malt finish.

jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Great beer! Pours black with a thin tan head. Smells of mocha, dark fruit, wood. Although its a little thin body, the flavor is rich and gets better as it warms up. Silky vanilla, coffee, cigarette smoke (in a good way) and oak barrel. Supper smooth aftertase of chocolate, creammy vanilla, and smoke. Excellent brew.

ChiGuy68 (433) - Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Rated from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a deep, dark brown with a frothy head thatís the darkest brown Iíve seen in a while, leaving fairly solid lacing. Nose has a roasted malt front with a hit of cocoa and coffee. Smooth, sweet, creamy taste of chocolate, coffee, and malt.

Coffee stouts are hard to do well, and Maumee Bay did a great job with this one. Flavors are balanced (stout vs coffee), doesn't coat the palate. It may be a little light on mouthfeel; I kind of want a stout to hit my mouth and get comfortable there, without coating. I would definitely drink this again, though.
