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.

Draft at Jerry’s. Black with big, foamy, brown head / Rich nose of chocolate, fresh roast coffee, and tobacco / Full body, chewy and creamy, light acidity, some sweetness but mostly dry with good bitterness to stand up the big body / Toasty flavors of dark roast coffee, bittersweet chocolate, cigar box, grass, lemon, and caramel / What a great stout.

Taste: chocolate malt, roasted coffee, rich and molasses notes. Black and opaque. Cocoa and coffee nose. Full body with thick tan head. Smokey and would pair well with dessert.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle... Pours murky and dark brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. The aroma is a mingling of vanilla and mocha – dark chocolate and Cubano espresso. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and airy carbonation. The flavor is very deeply roasted, offering a nice ration of vanilla, followed by acute, burnt, tannic bitterness. Lengthy, bitter finish.

Beerdedone (3062) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours jet black with a creamy tan head that left great lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. Flavor of sweet chocolate, dark roasted coffee, espresso, and some subtle caramel. Creamy texture, medium/full body, roasty dry finish.

10oz snifter draft at Hop Stop. Smells too thick of hipsters in here to get a good sniff. Taste is chocolate and roasted coffee beans, plenty malty, not too hoppy. Ohhh yeaaa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Countbeer (5608) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle: Thanks ig88b: Served in a Chouffe glass: Brown head, black beer. Aroma of coffee, some (coffee and malt) roast, coffee beans, some olives, some gass, hints of cacoa, lacto and red fruit. Flavours of coffee, roast, bitters, some chocolate, some olives, coffee beans, malts, malt roast and mocha. Aftertaste is bitter, roast, coffee, coffee beans and some dark chocolate. Low carbo, light creamy spiced mouthfeel, more than medium bodied and a light dry, spiced, bitter texture. Decent beer, I expected it to be a bit bigger and bolder, but nonetheless, a decent beer

"A little on the slick side, but not in a bad way. Chocolate, roast and coffee up front and center. Delicious if not terribly deep, but well priced and ridiculously smooth for a 9% brew. Will get another if its still around. Recommended if you dig the java."
