4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Fatherís Office in LA. Holy frijoles -- now this is a coffee stout. Unbelievably smooth, and the coffee is the warm espresso variety, not the stale note that too many beers exhibit. Chocolate and molasses -- this one is definitely a sweet stout, balanced beautifully by the roasty coffee. Wish this were available on a (really) regular basis -- itís just great.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
22 oz. bottle from The Greenville Beer Exchange, Greenville, SC (bottled March 28, 2013). Thick dark brown to nearly black pour with a rich brown head. Delicious aroma of roasted espresso and dark chocolate with light floral hops that sneak up from the back. Wonderful coffee flavor with rich mocha and light smoke that leave a slight lingering bitterness on the palate. The richness and mouthfeel are absolutely perfect. This is my kind of beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a dense black color with a small khaki head that soon recedes to a ring. The aroma is strong with coffee, coffee grounds and sweetened coffee. The flavor is more of the same, like the nose, there is ample coffee, mocha, espresso and some bitter walnuts for good measure. The palate is full and creamy smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering coffee beans. Overall: First rate coffee stout--compares favorably to speedway.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deuce from Megabev, Portage, MI. Stored and enjoyed at room temperature. Dark mahogany brown to black pour with a few inches of carmel colored head. Aromas of warm dark cocoa and dark roasted coffee beans, sweet cola syrup, some woodsy smokiness. Mild carbonation, foamy mouthfeel, clean finish. Left my tongue a bit numb. Great rich chocolate coffee-ful malty taste. Bitter dark roast coffee with just a slight acidity. Roasted malt adds a perfect amount of sweetness with some woodsy smokiness. Cocoa flavor too, adding bitterness. Very good, very well balanced imperial stout. Maybe next time I will try to age it.

big black motor oil poor, very little head and a lots of carbonation. Lots of roasted malts and coffee/espresso on the nose. Wow big bold bitter tast wit a fair amount of carbonation followed by a nice wallop of coffee, canít notice the high ABV either. Very good

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma of sweet roasty coffee and licorice. Pours black with a great blanket brown head. Taste is super roasty with great coffee notes. Itís almost hard to tell which roast characteristics are actually from the coffee. Some brilliant vanilla bean notes at the finish. Superbly made.

Chocolate syrup pour with a deep mocha head. Cocoa dipped Kona coffee beans, vanilla, roasted and even slightly charred marshmallow, and caramel round this one out. The 11% ABV is completely invisible. Delicious!
