Bottle. Black with tan head that fades away leaving a ring. Some nice vanilla bourbon notes up from with strong licorice, littlee coffee, dark plummy fruits, prune, chocolate. Taste doesn’t quite live up to the aroma, licorice, vanilla, wood, chocolate but on the whole the flavour is a little thin. Lacks the body I would expect, almost watery and finishes very quickly also the coffee is almost gone, possibly through aging. Very nice though

Small bottle. Thanks to mike12da. Huge oversteeped coffee, with a lot of barrel. Very dark brown. Big bittersweet coffee initial / strange but interesting harsh mid and final, coffee cake. Medium-heavy body, very creamy. Very sweet and smooth. But the coffee has much too harsh a bitter boiled character.

3/4/13. 11.2oz bottle thanks to blomster! Thanks, man! Rich deep brown pour, almost black, with a big tan head that fades to a ring and a film and laces a bit. Really rich aroma with tons of coffee, chocolate, and a touch of BA, and maybe a hint of alcohol. Sweet chocolate, cream, and some coffee. Tasty, though maybe a bit sweet and overcarbonated. Thanks, Christer!

Bottle sent to me by my good friend Heyta, you rock brotha! Finally getting to slay this beast and I was happy that I was able to do it with a few friends. Super dark color, no real head to speak of, nice lacing. Aroma is pretty heavy on the charred coffee aspect, mixed with a little bit of boozy chocolate. Super smooth and silky texture. Really delicious stuff!.

330 mL bottle tasted alongside the first four in the series, served in a snifter. Pours dense black with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose, there is an incredible amount of coffee, along with dark chocolate, roasted malts and molasses. The flavour is moderately sweet with big coffee, dark chocolate and dark roasted malts. On the palate, it is full in body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a beautiful imperial stout that does big coffee incredibly well. 2012-08-01

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours sinister black with a small, dense dark tan head. Great looking beer. You know it’s going to be huge just from the appearance. Nose shows it’s name sake notes; loads of bitter espresso tones with dark chocolate, heavy cocoa. Slight spice and pepper there too. Very grainy mouth feel with huge bitterness. Not much sweetness behind there. Loads of heavy and bitter espresso with very dark cocoa powder and pepper. Solid but doesn’t quite come together like I thought it would
