3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is indeed big coffee punch. Flavor is less spectacular but lots of coffee and chocolate. There is some chalky, over roasted flavor. Overall, an average to above average coffee stout. Never had an imperial stout in a can. Novel.

can. things are looking better. baseball season has begun, halibut season has begun and i just got a kick ass raise at work. so iím ready to enjoy this beer. it pours dark brown with a thick lasting head. bitter chocolate aroma is evident from a few feet away. coffee comes through as i get it closer along with a peanut scent. bet that asshole wishes he hadnít over slid second now...nice upfront coffee flavor a bit of a thinner body than i anticipated, and a definite peanut butter flavor. way to catch there buddy...finish is a touch on the burnt side at first. this does fade as it gets to the proper temp. not a bad beer, but there is abetter coffee beer on tap 7 blocks away. just have to get my kegerator running tomorrow and this will be a great summer. but not a bad beer.

The name says it all. Itís definetly a beer with complex character of coffee and stout. I picked up on a slight burnt taste. Lingering, but pleasent finish. Powerful in every sense. Though some people who are not adamant dark beer drinkers, may think its a little too powerful.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear dark brown with a nice frothy head that is light brown in color. Dark, but not as dark as some imperial stouts. Overwhelming coffee aroma with hints of dark chocolate. This beer is a nice combination of better and sweet and definitely has a strong coffee component to the flavor. Fairly creamy in the mouth. While a bit bitter, this is a very good coffee stout.

Sampled @ AZ Strong Beer Fest. Dark chocolate pour with a creamy latte head. Nose of espresso, roasted coffee bean, and a Starbucks lobby. Flavor also shows cocoa, toasted oats, and nuts. Fairly thick...definitely not watery. Good and I hear we are getting these in the can!!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a can at the AZ Strong Beer Fest, February 2011. Pours near lack with a brown head. The nose is roast, lots of coffee and burnt chocolate. The taste is mostly coffee with some milk chocolate in the background. Medium bodied. A bit one dimensional for me but it definitely lives up to its name.

Pours a beautiful black with mocha head. Notes of malted milk and chocolate on the nose. Full mouthfeel with start of deeply roasted malt, moves into smooth chocolate, and finally coffee with a hint of alcohol. Well balanced and delicious.
