Flavours of roast, coffee, bitters, coffee beans, coffee roast, malt and oat roast, some raisin, prunes and brown sugars, some herbal roast and bay leaf.
Aftertaste is a mix of coffee, coffee sweets, coffee roast, light malt and malt roast with a bitter raisin edge.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a rating party poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body and a fair lacing. . The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild roasted malt aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of mildly vinous roasted malt coffee brown malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber. Brown black body,some translucent edges, the beige head that fades out pretty quick. You certainly get the added vanilla...it gives it a very sweet, sugary feel. A pretty good adjunct Imperial Stout....sort of like a Southern Tier beer but more centered around the additional flavors. As the bottle says, this is a Latte Stout. Tasty, but not really a beer I want to drink the whole bottle of. The vanilla-chocolate-coffee combination is massive, and there is some depth in that regard. Pretty mellow on the palate for 10.5%. Should lose points for the FIBalicious office white boy art, but I’ll try and forgive them for that.

Flavor follows with some coffee bitterness, chocolate, roast, earth, and some sweet coffee. Finish lingers with coffee bitterness. Medium in body and very nice.
