COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the kind of beer that gives the word "stout" a reputation. Extra generous quantities of barley malt, followed by vigorous fermentation leaves this "imperial" heavy weight with 8% alcohol A.B.V. and a body as full as chocolate bread pudding. A complimentary and complex array of bitter notes comes form potent American hops, earthy British hops, black-roasted malts and, of course, coffee. Santa Fe Brewing Company uses only top-quality ingredients like organically grown East Timor coffee beans blended with New Guinea coffee beans, locally roasted by Ohoris Coffee House. Its heavenly flavor and aroma cant be beat or imitated.

Bottle shared by brew3crew. Pours brown with a small beige head. The aroma had roasted malts, mild coffee notes, ash, and a hint of brown sugar. The flavor had roasted malts, strong coffee, dark chocolate with some earthy hop bitterness to the finish. Decent stuff, very drinkable.

Westmeister (1983) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Imperial coffee stout in a can = sweet. Pours a dark brown with nice lasting beige head. The aroma roasted coffee and noticable coffee bitterness and earth. Taste was heavy roasted coffee, and big chocolately splashes. Good bitterness from the coffee with a peppery bit of a finish and just a tad sweet. Medium-bodied with light fizzy carbonation. Overall, really liked it, but it was pretty in your face coffee, but I like that sort of thing.

Shared at the local homebrew Christmas party. Brown can with a little whiteness. Beer looks about the same. Aroma is all coffee. Taste is coffee, vanilla, and dirt.

Dark pour from can. Taste is milk chocolate, black coffee and roasted nuts. Gentle hit of booze makes this an easy drinker. Nice.
