UPDATED: JUL 12, 2006 Wow is this good! Strong coffee, dark chocolate and roasted aromas. Dark brown head that’s gone in 15 seconds.. Black, black, black. The taste matched the aroma perfectly. This is one of th ebest Imp Stouts I’ve ever had. Coudln’t really taste the alcohol. As this warmed up, it got even better. I’d be interested to see how this ages.

Midnight pours into the glass. A fluffy khaki head forms up on the beer. Iced mocha on the nose with slight hints of heavy cream and perhaps fresh-milled lumber. Smooth espresso richness invades the palate as a wave velety chocolate, and creamy yet crisply bitter finish. leaves the palate thirsting for more. NIce warming beer, but still just a refreshing stout, not a lumbering cocao monster. Good jerb!!!

Bottled. Pours oily and very black. Syrupy apple aroma. Very sweet and thick. Heavily malty with some molasses and a sticky, yet hard mouthfeel. Somewhat phenolic with notes of toffee. Low bitterness. What a mess...

Poured the stout in my glass, took a whif and smelled those same exact cookies that dude was cooking on the label of this beer. Figured it was all in my head, you know..seeing something and making other senses feel/sense it also. So I took a swig, still had some of that cookie doughiness to it with a wonderful touch of chocolate, some coffee, and some roasted malt. Went back to the aroma and sure enough, the most wonderous cookie dough aroma. I decide to drag the wife in and see what she thinks...she is a beer hater. From aroma to flavor she hates it all, but agreed cookie dough big time. Terrific brew through and through. Wish it could be a staple in my fridge.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 21, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2008 Bottle. Many thanks to Springslicker for bringing this all the way to Nashville for me. Pours black with slight brown head. Milky coffee aroma. Flavor could use a tad more balance, which had too much of the bitter coffee flavor going on. Very dark, burnt roasted finish, and somewhat dry. Still a very good beer, but a hair short of competing with the big boys. Between this and the Big Hoppy Monster, this is a brewery to keep your eye on.
UPDATE: 1-16-08. I opened a 2006 bottle, and I think it’s at the start of decline. This is still drinkable, but you can sense the cardboard like oxidation getting ready to take over.

A wonderful brew. pours black, dark brown head, nice lacing. Taste is a milky coffee with a slight oatmeal taste. No alcohol burn what so ever. a slight oatmeal cream finish. Does not lack in flavor. a wonderful winter brew

Absolutely black with a slight head on it. Chocolately, somewhat coffeeish, aroma. very roasty and malty. Pretty good flavor...strong coffee (which I love in an imperial stout), slightly sweet and nicely balanced bitterness with a creaminess. Not as full and rich as some IS, and a lower alcohol content. Anway, it tastes good.

Well, well, they CAN make good beer in the south - many thanks to TheBeerCellar2 and OhioDad, both of whom sent me bottles of this - opaque, viscous pour, with lasting tan lace - aroma is all coffee and cream - very silky mouthfeel - coffee dominates, but this one keeps a nice bitterness, and doesn’t get overtaken by a sweet, cream-like flavor like a lot of other coffee stouts - reminds me of a lighter version of Founders Breakfast Stout, which is, of course, a compliment.

Quite a treat. Very thick and opaque. All kinds of different flavors (I think they refer to this as "complex"). Malty, sweet, bitter, alcohol coffee all with a roasty, nutty finish. This is a dessert style beer that I would recommend having one during the evening’s session.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2006
Dark brown, looks oily on the top. Aroma is lighter but some nice espresso and vienna coffee. Nice body with great coffee flavour, but a little oily, high abv is hardly noticeable. Very pleasant and smooth at the end. Nicely balanced, a very nice beer.
