Three thousand feet above sea level in the misty mountains of Jamaica, some of the worlds finest Arabica beans are hand picked on their way to becoming Blue Mountain Coffee. Halfway around the world, plump spring barley grows to maturity in the loamy soil of North America while aromatic hops are cutivated to exacting standards. Here in our kettles, these three special ingredients are blended to create a heady mixture of sweet sugar, dark roast, and complex flavor. Please enjoy this brew in moderation.

Rated from notes taken 22 Jun 2011, Southern Tier Beer Tasting -- Great mix of Stout and Coffee. Coming from a guy that doesn’t much like coffee. (I need to try this beer again now that I drink coffee pretty regularly)

22 oz. bottle from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, coffee, chocolate with a more subdued sweetness than other ST beers like Creme Brulee and Choklat. I generally like all these in smaller amounts. Tasty enough, but not something I seek out often.

Backlog. Bottle @ Green Lion Inn 2011, aged for about 12 months in average conditions. Their dark beers always excite me, and this is truly fabulous.

Bomber from Tosa Wine and Spirits. Pours an opaque black with a tan head leaving some spots of lace. Aroma has heavy roast, chocolate and caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, lactose, heavy espresso and bakers chocolate. Bitter and strong, with a bit of a chocolate chip cookies factor. Full bodied and lowly carbonated. Quite strong and rough. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet, with some alcohol presence. And rough. Very tasty and very full bodied - and very extreme espresso.

Una tenebra cremosa e impenetrabile avvolge il bicchiere. Il gusto è intenso di caffé mocha, penetrante e profumato, e poi di malti tostati intrecciati a una delicata dolcezza complessiva che rende estremamente piacevole la bevuta. Grado alcolico inafferrabile.

From memory. Had this before my RB days. Apparently thy don’t make it anymore. Similar profile to the other black water series. This one had a lot of coffe and was probably the best I the bunch. Unfortunately this and the mocha which are the two best were the ones discontinued.

JBPortland (1116) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 7, 2014
22oz bottle (3/2012) pours near flat brown/black with a few bubbles. Nose is sweet chocolate and artfical roast coffee. Taste is tootsie roll, dusty cocoa, some dark coffee, hershey syrup, boozy. Finish is sweet syrupy hershey and chocolate, a little coffee. Not great at this stage.

A very good imperial stout but it is way too sweet for my liking. Very sugary and heavily coffee flavored. Smells sweet and like coffee ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
