This imperial stout features a massive dose of some of the finest local coffee available. Utilizing a blend of several different roasts from the fine folks at Conscious Coffees in Boulder, we infused this beer with over 10 pounds of Coffee. The result is an incredibly intense and complex ale that is sure to keep you awake until the last drop!

On tap at Vine Street Pub. Pour is pitch black with a small brown head and great lacing. Big coffee, roast, cocoa nibs, a hint of vanilla, wood, and earthy hops in the aroma. Taste is Espresso, earthy Sumatra, grassy, somewhat sweet, vanilla, caramel, and oak with a roasted bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with medium-to-high carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2013
On tap at Mtn Sun. Pours a very dark brown with light brown head that settles quickly. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt and oats. Flavor is sweet, roasted coffee up front fading into bitter roasted finish. The flavor is mostly roasted coffee, but it is anticipated and not a bad thing. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and a slightly chewy texture. A smooth, strong, rich coffee beer. Very enjoyable.

rhialistic (156) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Tap @ Vine Street. Thin tan head, black beer. Deep roasted espresso and mocha aromas. Served too cold to taste at first, had to wait for it to warm a little. Beer tasted very much like a cold press sweetened espresso, yet finishes with a little heat from alcohol. Medium body, light carbonation. Overwhelming sweetness prohibits beer from being more enjoyable.

Pour on tap at vine st is dark black with tan head, nice looking in the glass. Aroma brought notes of wet coffee grounds, some slight chocolate, toffee and roasted notes but the wet coffee dominates. The flavor, however, mixes deep espresso bean nicely with dark chocolate, roasted malt and some dark fruit, hints of earth notes finishes fairly coffee forward. Nicely done, delicious.
