Dark brown in color, clear with a thin head. Big chocolate and dark roasty malt aroma. The hops come through in the aroma and flavor. This is a big dark roasty Impy stout. Awesome flavors this also gives off a slight cream base from the Kahula. Super taste and finish.

On tap, pours a jet black color with a brown hue with a small tan head that leaves light lacing. Smells of, coffee, caramel, vanilla, and chocolate and maybe slight lactose sugar. Tastes at the same things with the slight flavor of the Kalua soaked oak the used in the back end. Mouthfeel is thick and silky, also creamy with good carbonation. Pretty impressed with all thatís going on flavor wise. Iíd have to say this is my favorite from Naked City that Iíve had to date.

Draught. Pours a near black color with a moderate light brown head on there. Nose is roasty with some coffee coming off of it. Taste is very roasty and slightly bitter, with coffee showing up here, too. Really good beer. Me gusta mucho.

Bottle a few months old. Pours with a big long lasting head and lace. Aroma is big roast, espresso acidic, light raisins, Flavor is similar with coffee bitterness, sugar and Kahlua sweetness, light lactic sour throughout. Body is silty, full, lively, soft. Sounds like a bad idea but it works. The Kahlua is not pronounced or distinctly identifiable.

Bottle from NC. Very little head. Lots of dark roast coffee and char possibly from the oak barrels. It's taste is great on first taste and dissipates quickly. Some lingering coffee notes. Interested it trying the other versions of This that NC sometimes has. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bytemesis (3967) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark black with a small fizzy tan head that dissipates fairly quickly with some lacing. Aroma is chocolatey, roasty, some coffee. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, chocolate, some oakiness. Light body for the style, but still manages to be somewhat creamy. Lots of carbonation is distracting. A lot of good things going on in this one, but they donít really come together.

CampesinoTino (798) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bomber. Charcoal black pour with a cap of light brown foam. Aroma has notes of chocolate mocha, licorice, espresso and oak. Taste is milk chocolate, roasted malt and white wine upfront along with some dark roast coffee, cherry and molasses toward the end. Moderately thick and creamy mouthfeel with more charred malt and oak in the finish. Although the French oak notes donít always mesh with the traditional Imperial Stout flavors it definitely gets points for creativity.

neepsntatties (1276) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle. Colour...nearly black with a thick off white head. Nose...smells like a White Russian! Creamy, milky, light bodied coffee. Palate... a bit thin for an imperial stout. Flavours are similar to whatís on the nose with more of the coffee-like thing going on, but all quite subdued otherwise.

Pours thick with a bubbly dark tan head. Sips viscous and creamy. Slightly sweet with well balanced bitter middle and finish. 9%abv is very well masked. .dangerous! Nice hints of chocolate too. Nice brew

Interestingly nice -- aged on Kahlua soaked wood. Indeed creamy. No roastiness. Effervescent coffee notes. Downside is just a tad boozy. B+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
