3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can: Jet black with a tan head. Aroma of ash tray, coffee - a regular break room favorite at the factory. Bitter flavors of coffee grounds with sugar added. Thin feel even though some bitterness remains. Not bad, unique for a coffee imperial stout.

Can to glass. Strong coffee initially but fades relatively quickly. Dark black pour with light brown head. More biscuit as it warms. Taste is burnt toast and bread crust. Coffee is there but is mostly muted. medium to full body. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark brown body with limited clarity, under a coarse lacing sand-colored top. A distinct metal scent at first, followed by a big coffee aroma. Hint of alcohol. Supercreamy mouthfeel. Medium to full body. Coffee-flavored from here to eternity. Soft, rounded and creamed. Light bitter tones, and hint of dark dried fruits underneath. A very good one. Coffee-o-rama! [12 fl.oz. can, gift from yngwie. Thanks my friend!]

Near black with a nice beige head that slowly fades to a film. Tons of lacing. Aroma is coffee with cream and sugar and some chocolate notes. Taste is milk chocolate and slightly bitter coffee. Silky palate. Really nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an opaque, very dark brown, with a creamy taupe head. Full, griddle grease, olive, and smoky coffee aromas. Smooth, moderately thick mouthfeel. A lot of balance in this coffee, chocolate, smoke, cooked grease on the griddle, and olive flavors. Very, very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hearty, freshly ground coffee atop the roasty stout base. Balance of flavors is superb for an everyday shelf beer. Rivals Breakfast Stout in its level of refinement. Thrilled that this is widely available around here.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a black color with a small foamy tan head that faded and left decent lacing. The aroma was strong ground coffee and a bit of roasty malts. The flavor was strong ground coffee, vanilla, marshmallow with sweet toasty malts. Very long finish. Thick and creamy body. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can to glass. Pours a deep brown to black color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, light coffee, chocolate, nutty. Flavor brings out a bit more roasted malt sweetness with a touch of coffee bitterness. Some cacao still shines through. Light to medium in body and very drinkable for an imperial stout. Maybe more along the lines of a stout. But who cares. Very tasty.
