COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Serving up cold and jet black, this imperial stout should be taken seriously for about one minute as the dark foam builds. Then, enjoy its velvety chocolate-covered smoothness and delicious aroma of sustainably-grown, locally-roasted coffee.

Bottle. Pours a deep black with a huge bubbly tan head that lingers. Rich aroma, of coffee, sweet chocolate, roasted malts, wood, and caramel. Taste is sweet and roasty, of chocolate-covered coffee beans, roasted malt, toast, sugar, milk, almost like tiramisu. Lingering sweet dessert. Yummy.

IrishBoy (3825) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Bomber from GM Liquors. Nose is dark chocolate, light roasty coffee, and hints of cream. Black with a 1/4 inch cinnamon head. Flavor is coffee up front, chocolate, and a bit of background bitterness.

Emeister84 (958) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Aromas of mochacino, potting soil, and earthy hops. Dark brown-black with tan head foam of little retention. Tastes boozy, dry, and roasty, with predominant espresso and cocoa flavors, along with a good degree of hop bitterness. The palate is full bodied, with fluffy carbonation, and a long, dry, roasty finish.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Appearance: pours near black with a frothy tan ring.

Aroma: Coffee,chocolate,sugar,medium roast.

Taste: Coffee, dark chocolate. Spicy hops. Long coffee finish.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with modest carbonation.

Overall: I will put this beer in the “Coffee Beers I Like” column. Not like KBS or Speedway, it’s own beer, and a respectable one at that.

peteinSD (1364) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle. Black pour with a dark tan head that fades out to a slick quickly. Aroma is heavy chocolate and coffee with some roast. Taste is coffee up front with chocolate and roast and then a very bland, generic sweet malt finish. Clean mouthfeel. Nice smelling beer but the taste, beyond the coffee and roast, is boring.

cards04 (1735) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
Pours black with tan head. Some coffee aromas. Massive coffee flavours. Couldn’t get much sweetness or chocolate. Like a cold cup of coffee. Good.

Kevin (2071) - New Mexico, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle. pours pitch with a tan head. strong coffee nose hits me before i am done pouring it. smells like a starbucks frappucino from the gas station i have had on road trips. sweet creamy coffee flavor. roast bitterness lingers,. coffee and alcohol. find a way to put thc and nicotine and and it may be the universal beverage.

Initially I had rated this lower, but I had just had Southern Tier Choklat before this so not a fair comparison. Overall, this is an attractvie and flavourful stout. Very nice.
