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.

22oz Bottle - Thanks OmegaX!
Appearance - Oily black, leather head
Aroma - Roasted malts, hotel coffee, cocoa powder
Taste - Mocha, caramel, dark chocolate, bitter finish

I like how smooth all the chocolate flavors melded together here. It’s a very smooth drinker with just enough bite at the end to remind you of it’s 9% alcohol content.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Draft. Pours deep black. Rich coffee aroma with strong hints of chocolate. Hides the alcohol very well. Great beer.

Nb coffe chocolate stout 12/23/12 Notes (Draft, Hamilton’s. Solid fragrant coffee aroma, bit rounder, mocha in middle. Finishes quite mild. Starts strong, ends a bit fun of mill for the style. Tasty flavor.

FunkyBrewster (1517) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours nearly black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is roasty malt, bittersweet chocolate and mocha coffee. Flavor starts with the same bittersweet chocolate note, smooth and creamy before the mocha character comes in. Fairly sweet as the chocolate really pops, but the coffee is nice in it as well, definitely a dessert type beer, nicely done though

Le nez de cette bière est extraordinaire, on a pu le constater en la comparant la BS founders. En bouche, les deux ne sont pas dans la même ligue, spécialement à cause de la finale aqueuse. En milieu de bouche par contre, l’esspresso et le chocolat noir brille.

Pours pitch black with a white head. Smells like coffee & hints of chocolate. Malt & chocolate & coffee balance well - not too roasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

doublebock (491) - California, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Black with tan head. Really pleasant and strong free coffee grind aroma. Sweet and malty like a Hershey’s Kiss and a strong but subtle roasted Turkish coffee and marshmellow flavor.

wxman (1340) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Pours a deep dark opaque brown with a light tan head. Aroma is rich coffee with cream. Taste is a nice blend of dark roasted malt with some sweetness, coffee, dark chocolate and raisins. What bitterness there is seems derived from the burnt malt rather than any hops of note. alcohol well hidden, except for the characteristic warmth after the swallow.
