3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
1/2 pint @ draught house. Appearance is black, translucent, small khaki head fades. Aroma is definitely coffee, that’s about it! The taste is dark rich coffee, burnt, medium-bitter, and just a tiny bit hoppy. Long aftertaste, lingers. Heavy body, but fizzy on the tongue at the end.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can to glass - beautiful, black with a strong, well laced, light beige head. Something is off in the aroma for me... Some mocha, but a strange chemical mintiness. The minty aroma yields to a well rounded chocolate mint on the tongue. More of a dessert stout. Nice lingering, fresh lactic coffee finish. Great after the nose.

This is really a phenomenal coffee stout. Lots of body lots of flavor. Aroma and flavor coffee but not overly bitter. Great overall beer. Thin fading head. Body is thick but not syrupy.

A good imperial stout, not very smoky but pretty bitter finish. I don’t really get the java flavoring either.
