Near black pour with a thick khaki had. Great lacing. Aroma is a really nice fresh ground coffee and mocha. Taste is espresso, milk chocolate, and short bread. Subtle hops in there. This is really good.

Bottle pours black, light brown head with fair lacing. Aromas are coffee, hops with subtle chocolate notes and a slight roastyness. Flavors of strong coffee, subtle bitter chocolate notes and malts, faint hoppyness. The Finish; Starts out strong up front, fades quickly in the middle with a pale ale/porter feel. The back carries dry coffee notes.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice dark body and a tan head that lasts a decent while and leaves great lacing. Aroma is stronger of coffee but you can easily note the chocolate, light earthy and burnt notes as well. Flavor is initially bittersweet with chocolate, coffee, and toasted malt with a clean and not too acidic coffee finish. Body is dry and medium overall. Carbonation is average. A delicious beverage I will buy another one of right away.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with a nice fluffy, though short-lived light brown head that fades to a thick ring and leaves light lace. Somewhat mild aroma of coffee, duh, and light chocolate and vanilla. Coffee dominates the taste, with hints of chocolate and cream. Medium-full bodied. Good, but way too mild and a tad thin to be considered a really good imperial stout.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark black. Very dominant chocolate and coffee flavors. Thick. I wish coffee tasted this good. Hides the 9% incredibly well. This tastes like espresso beans coated in chocolate.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours with darkness and very little head. The aroma is powerful, got a lot of chocolate as soon as I cracked the bottle. After a real smell, you get even more chocolate and some coffee. The coffee hits you right up front as soon as it hits your lips. It fades a bit, but not much and is there throughout the whole taste. Some chocolate, but is heavily dominated by the coffee. You better like coffee for this one!

Sampled at the beach with kristen. Pours a very dark clear brown with good tan head. Aroma is exactly that off coffee. Flavor has some dark bitter chocolate roastiness. Not the best imperial stout, or the best coffee beer iíve had, but very good for what it is.
