4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at Clockworkís 10K tasting - probably one of the best beers of the day. Pours a deep brown body with thin tan lacing. Aroma is fantastic - reminiscent of the first few steps walking into a coffee shop - fresh roast, vanilla, hazelnut and light cocoa. Mouthfeel is creamy and rich, but in no way overbearing. Really delicious and enjoyable.

Crowler. Pours black tan head. Nose/taste of White Russian, coffee, lactose and chocolate - mostly a straight up high end white Russian. Medium body.

This isnít brewed with cream -- just your standard imperial stout fermented with whole coffee beans. Less like a White Russian and more like a really, really good cup of coffee. Brown like dark chocolate, fading to amber at the edges. Viscosity of coffee and a splash of cream. Silky, tiny-bubbled head the color of latte foam. One of the better coffee beer aromas Iíve experienced: espresso with a dollop of dulce le leche, then milk chocolate and a hint of licorice. A background meatiness emerges as it warms, like well-marbled steak. The flavor is more bean-focused. Sharp coffee, toasted sourdough, earthy and minty hops in the front; smooth cream appears in the finish to round out the bitter edges. Creamy medium-light body, prickly carbonation. Just a bit of alcohol fumes. Extremely drinkable and smooth as the drink itís named for.

I havenít had too many "White RIS" beers over all, but this is definitely the best one I have tried. Completely nails that creamy, milky, Kahlua type taste on top of itís big robust body. Stellar.

Sampled @ AZ Strong Beer Fest. Hershey syrup pour with a tiny mocha head that left a spot or two in the glass. Split vanilla, cocoa dusted Kona coffee beans, milk chocolate, fudge, and cream in the nose. Godiva, Ghirardelli, brownie batter, vanilla, and milk-soaked Oreos in flavor. White chocolate subtleties as well. Rich, complex, decadent...one of the top AZ Imperial Stouts without doubt, particularly minus a barrel treatment. Wow, just wow!

Looks like liquid dark chocolate in a glass. Foamy head. Intoxicating aroma of vanilla beans, dark chocolate, and a slight coffee nose. Drinks as a smooth concoction of vanilla and dark chocolate, with a very slight espresso roast finish. Easily one of my top 3 AZ stouts.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a growler. Incredible nose of sharp fresh-roasted coffee beans, vanilla, dark chocolate, heavy cream, some black licorice, and a hint of boozy oak. Pours dark brown like really strong coffee. Lovely taste of espresso, vanilla beans, some molasses, and a heavy roasty bitterness on the back end along with a sharp anise finish. Great RIS; well done, Uwe!

This beer is incredible! The last time they had I missed it, but when I saw on Facebook they tapped another keg, I had to get some. It is smooth, chewy and has a ridiculous finish. I would love to see them age this in barrels. If you get the chance to try this, do. Itís that good! Cheers!

Pours a black color with tan head. This beer was crazy good! Aromas of chocolate and sugar. Flavors of sweet milk sugars, chocolate, toffee, and roast sends this one off the charts. Very unexpected from this little brewery.
