Growler poured into a wine-style tasting glass. Pours black with some brown hues and a tan head. Aroma has huge amazing notes of roast and coffee, along with some caramel and chocolate. On the taste, big amazing roast and coffee notes again, with caramel, chocolate, and espresso. Full body with a semi-dry finish, very smooth. The coffee is really well done in this one.

Dark black color with very thin head. Huge coffee and dark roast aroma. A bit cloying but pairs exquisitely with a small dish a vanilla ice cream for desert or maple bacon with pancakes

I picked up a number of 32oz growlers of this at Pizza Boy. I donít typically rave, but about this, I need to. First thing you notice when you crack the growler is the wonderful inviting aroma of coffee, not overly roasted or overly gritty, but wonderful, fragrant, sweet coffee. Other aromas of milk chocolate, toast, molasses, mocha, caramel, a bit of vanilla bean. When you finally pour it in the glass, itís an opaque black, oily, with some sudsy brown head. Flavors follow suit, roasted malt, molasses, a little licorice, some toast, brown sugar, caramel, a little raisin, pencil lead and really high end coffee. Roasty, coffee finish. Incredibly drinkable. Goes down like itís 6%, not 11. One of the best beers I can remember having. Sensational in the truest sense of the word.

Growler fill from Simon, pours opaque black with small beige head. Aromas and taste of espresso, coffee bean, green coffee, chocolate, fudge. Smaller notes of vanilla, nuts, bitter and smokey malts but not over the top. Aftertaste is like you chewed on some columbian grinds. So rich and layered. No alcohol present for 11%. This beer is insane. Really takes a dump on the higher regarded coffee stouts out there. Medium body, a little bit sticky. One of the best Terry has made at Pizza Boy.

Growler: The aroma consists of huge roasted coffee and light-moderate dark chocolate. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small beige head. The flavor starts with moderate milk chocolate with a touch of dark chocolate. The finish has moderate roasted coffee and a touch of vanilla. Itís medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, a top notch coffee Imperial Stout.

Great beer on tap at local brewery pizza boy. Pours jet black with a little amber shining through the edges. Smells of your favorite coffee shop. The taste hits you bigtime with strong coffee and dark roasted malts. Mouthfeel is thick and silky. the coffee flavor lingers long after you swallow. One of the best stouts I have had.

Pours an opaque coffee brown with a thin buttery tan head. Aroma has a strong overtone of quality coffee plus hints of roast malt and molasses. Flavor has a strong tone of high-quality coffee with hints of no sweet chocolate, molasses and roast malt. Firm texture has good fizz, and leaves a nice mocha finish. Wake up to this! Beer:It isnít just for breakfast anymore.

22 oz bottle. Bottle states 9.5% abv. Pours a very deep brown, almost black but some amber notes coming through as I poured it (not motor oil black). Very small tan head that went away to nothing quickly. Aroma is all coffee and mocha, vanilla, some roasted malt and caramelÖbut primarily dominated by coffee. Coffee ice cream like aroma. Really is an excellent coffee beer aroma! Flavor is also of a ton of coffee, but not astringent. Caramel, mocha, milk chocolate, lightly roasted malt. Love the coffee profile in this beer. Coffee beers are one of my favorite styles and this is one of the best ones I have ever had. Had to knock the appearance a bit since it poured with minimal head and that went away quickly.

Draft at the source courtesy of Terry and Al, thanks very much! Black color, brown head. Aroma of fresh french press coffee, cocoa, subtle licorice. Taste is rich freshly roasted dark coffee beans, anise, dark fruit. Amazing stuff.
