COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Stout brewed with Cacao, Vanilla, Coconut, and Almonds "Aw man, I got this one guy. He’s an alien. I was in this one place, real tropical, real cool, real classy, and he just scooped me up. He gave me this beer, it was savemylife good. These aliens were seriously killin’ it ALL DAY! Is it wrong for a grown man to kiss an alien full-on on the lips? Somebody check my pressure. DONE. It’s cool to be cool." We love Nick, and we love this beer too. Done.

Bottle share thanks to beechner224. Dark blackish pour. Lightly roasty, grainy, maybe some nut character. Sweet, caramel. No real nutty or toasty character.

22 oz bomber. The pour is jet black with a lighter khaki colored head that falls to a thin ring with no lace. The aroma is beautifully coconut laced. There is a great roasty malt character and a nice licorice bitterness that comes through. There is a good booze heat on the back end, which was a little surprising. The flavor is a little more roasty with a good licorice bitterness. The coconut offers a little sweetness to combat it, but the bitterness is the mainstay. The mouth feel is excellent. Thick, viscous, with a soft carbonation that help it hang around beautifully. The aftertaste is a roasty and bitter, with a dryness that is just great. Solid beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dfonorow (1666) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Pour is black with a finger-wide tan head. Aroma of peat, coffee, dark malt, light hops, and milk chocolate. Flavor of chocolate syrup, smoke, coconut, slight vanilla, and roast. Finish is a bit hoppier than the body.

kkleu357 (388) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Dark motor oil pour. Little head. Little worried about the smell because it is slightly sour. Other hints of chocolate and cocoa. Very sweet. Slight fruit taste. Might be on the verge of going bad. Lots of cocoa flavor. Mild almond. Not getting much coconut. Maybe that is the slight tart fruity taste and aroma.

jdb288 (584) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with small amount of tan head. Aroma is coconut, dark chocolate, trace vanilla. Taste is distinctly nutty - I couldn’t discern "almond" from any other nut, but I liked it. Coconut is not as prevalent as I had hoped but it’s there. Plenty of chocolate and vanilla to round it out. Heavy on the palate. This one will keep you warm in the winter!

Bottle from dtjager. Pours black brown head. Nose/taste of coconut, toasted nuts, roast and milk chocolate, marshmallow, toasted almonds, vanilla fluff and cacoa. Medium body.

First beer for me in 6 weeks. Chocolate nibs, marshmallow, and cashews on the nose and in the taste. Pretty good.

MacBoost (1399) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours a jet black with a tan head. Strong aromas of caramelized nut sweetness. Taste is sweet and lightly bitter. Flavors of nuts, marshmallow, sticky sweet fudge (packers?), and moar nuts. Deez nuts! You ever had a Beer Nut brand peanut? That’s what this tastes like, in liquid form with added chocolate and marshmallows. Sweet. Borderline cloying but easy to drink and high boost. I liked it.

Shared with Zach on a hot miserable steamy humid Friday afternoon on the patio with a Cuban, pours a dark black pour with a java colored head. Nose is malty, with coffee and some sweetness. Taste is malty with cacao, mocha and roasted nuts, and is smooth and velvety. Finishes on the same tasting notes and just bathes the palate with smoothness and ease. Is there a flawless beer ? Thanks Archer, and thank you Pipeworks, amazing what one can miss without Pipeworks. Quaff Score 10 / 10

Bomber. Pours black with a brown head and sweet aroma of cocoa, vanilla, and coconut. Taste is delicious, tons of complex flavor, cocoa, vanilla, dark fruits, coconut that really comes throb in the finish, and coffee while creamy with almond milk flavor and a sweet, vanilla cocoa finish. Great brew
