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. 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.

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.

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.

Enjoyed via a bottled from Outpost Co-op on Capital Drive in Milwaukee. Pours a deep brown-black with a large and clingy tan head. The aroma is a mocha latte. The taste is like an iced mocha; you get the coffee flavors, chocolate, cream and some caramel. The palate is silky smooth like drinking milk or cream. There is little to no boozy flavor less a warm burn on the back and side of the tongue. The finish is chocolate caramel. This is a new favorite, for sure.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Black body with a tall dark tan head. Some spotty lacing. Aroma is chocolates and coffee with a light cocoa puffs. Flavor is chocolate with oats and subtle coffee. For once a brewer was able to make a beer either chocolate added and not have that gross oily component. Medium roast. Medium body that has no hint of 9%.

jcnielsen (2255) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours a black color with tan head. Black coffee, slight chocolate and malty sweet aroma. Interesting black coffee flavor. You don’t get the 9% alcohol.

On tap at Sister. Rather thick and strong in flavor. The chocolate is quite strong and fake, but not in a bad way actually. It’s like a good quality chocolate syrup. Some dick who seemed to be rolling spilled 2/3 my glass.
