COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an extravagant, immoderate beer. We mixed together our three favorite things - beer, chocolate and coffee. A rich stout serves as the backbone, with organic black malt and chocolate malt providing a luscious foundation. During the boil, we add artisan chocolate from our friends at Taza. During conditioning, we add coffee from out friends at Coffee by Design. Then, this concoction is oak-aged, resulting in soft vanilla notes. We hope you enjoy this beer as much as we do.

Cybercat (3315) - Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2012
Aroma has note of cocoa powder, molasses and roast coffee with a hint of oak. It pours an opaque warm sable with a fairly thick, rather persistent, fluffy tan head. Flavor has roast coffee, licorice, woody and semi-sweet chocolate notes plus a whisper of caramel. Smooth texture has some good fizz and body, and leaves a woody, smoky, slightly mocha finish.

blipp (6111) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2012
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Fudgey sweet chocolate aroma, with lighter oak notes. The flavor has more fudge-like chocolate, oak, lightly roasted malts, and mocha-like coffee notes. Solid.

Ron (2528) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2012
On tap at MacGregor’s. Pours very dark brown with little head and lacing. Aroma consists of roasted dark malt, maple, butterscotch, and ripe fruit. Taste is coffee, chocolate and a hint of smoke and notes of oak. Finish is woody and slightly bitter. Thinner than the Stone Imp stout. Overall, a rich and warming beer.

Pours deep brown/black with a medium mocha head. Aroma has spent coffee grounds or "diner" coffee, some lightly charred woody notes. Flavor has lots of coffee...slighty burnt...some bitter dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium/full with a bitter chocolate/coffee finish that dries out with some char.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2012
From the bottle, pours black with a thick tab foamy head. Frozen chocolate aroma. Berries in the taste, what I should have expected from an organic beer. Not a favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Angelmonster (115) - Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Pours a black body, head is well over 1 inch and dark brown. Head retention was very good and lacing was good. Smell is of freshly ground coffee mixed with warm brownies. Sweet chocolate syrup and burnt malts are also in there. Faint hops are present and the aroma of alcohol is light though it smells more of port wine. Taste is a mix of bitter chocolate, biscuity roasted malts, and cold strong coffee. Sweet Hershey’s syrup comes in next, this tastes very similar to an actual mocha. Slight hops are present but I think a majority of the beers bitterness comes from the coffee. At 8% abv, the flavor of alcohol was hidden mostly. Mouthfeel is somewhat light for an imperial stout, and well carbonated. Normally this would be bad but the head added a nice richness to the body and rounded it out nicely. Overall this beer was pretty damn good. Chocolate, coffee, malts and alcohol all balanced well. I finished the bomber pretty easily which isnt very common for such a rich beer. While this beer lacks the complexity of my all time favorites, it’s definitely one that I’ll have to revisit soon.

TheJestersBeer (2060) - SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2012
Bottled. Pours a compact black, with a thin beige head. Very roasted aroma, pronounced coffee notes (espresso beans), chocolate, vanilla, mint, tobacco, oak. Semi sweet, full bodied, medium bitterness, creamy CO2. The taste is likewise heavily roasted, with a clear presence of the coffee beans, lots of chocolate, vanilla and oak. The finish is fairly dry, with a refreshing acidity from the coffee beans. Not bad. (2012-03-05)

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2012
Bottled 665ml
Bought from NYC, sampled in Panama City. Dark opaque brown color, steady creamy brown head. Strong oak-vanilla aroma with toasted notes. Medium-bodied. Oak-wood and vanilla dominate the flavor, some coffee and toasted maltyness. Wineous tartness in finish, although soft palate. Fairly easy to drink and ok balanced.
