Pour at TAPS in Brea for RBSG bus trip. Super dark pour with tons of coffee and acidic aroma. Taste is super black espresso. This is a coffee bomb and I love it. What a great beer.

Bottle. Pours with a pitch black body with a small tan head that lasts. Aromas of coffee, coffee creamer, bready, vanilla, light roasted malt, very rich. Flavors are HUGE, rich and fresh roast, a bit nutty, some vanilla. Vibrant coffee character. Chocolate, maple. Minimal bitterness overall. Alcohol is completely hidden, silky mouthfeel with light carbonation. Very tasty!

This is a serious breakfast beer. Big coffee aroma and strong but not bitter coffee taste throughout. If you like coffee beer, then you will love this. Very smooth. Sampled at the Reserve Society Celebration 2012.

Almost black in color with a tan head. Really simple and straightforward: this smells like coffee. There’s a little bit of dark chocolate and some nice roasted malt character. The story is pretty much the same on the palate: lots and lots of coffee flavor. Intense coffee, a hint of vanilla, and a fair amount of roasted malt and dark chocolate. Really good.

mcberko (14668) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2013
On tap at Mohawk Bend, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, particularly cherries, roasted malts, and some chocolate. Flavour is quite chocolatey and fruity, full of sweetened milk chocolate, cherries and other dark fruits, what a wonderful balance of flavours. Sweet but not cloying. Excellent stuff.

I had this on tap at Taps Brea during the RBSG 2012. This imperial stout has a nice complexity about it: chocoate, chilies, etc
