Pours a very dark murky brown with a small tan head. The aroma is mostly coffee, roast, dark chocolate.Taste has some spice, roasted coffee, dark chocolate with moderately sweet finish. A touch on the thin side but still thick and rick. Very good beer.

I'm not a Count, but this is not imperial either! Coffee and chocolate are predominant but not up to the standard of Imperial Stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2014 Vintage.
Glass: Tired Hands wine glass.
Appearance: Pitch black body with a tall tan head that has great retention. The head settles to a near opaque coating.
Aroma: The aroma is hugely prominent coffee, biscotti, a whiff of caramel, mocha and creamer. Aroma is a tad astringent, but enjoyable.
Taste: Coffee is prominent, but not nearly as much as the aroma indicates. Intro is mild and semi-sweet with roasted malts, as the sip enters the mid-taste the coffee comes in softly with a soft underlying caramel. The finish is strong bitter coffee with a more prominent underlying caramel that lingers on my tongue for a bit after the sip with mellow coffee. Really enjoyable.
Palate: Thick and chewy.
Overall: This is the most balanced version I’ve had yet, but I think that Founders Breakfast Stout edges it out still. A great beer, I wish it were a bit cheaper, but well worth buying once a year.

Burnt roasted malt aroma with a fairly strong coffee aroma as well. Taste is similar. Very dark, almost muddy. Flavors are strong but nice. Quite a bit of coffee in the flavors. Alcohol is muted, but not my favorite imperial stout. Coffee and burnt malt is a bit too much. Bitter finish and not sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4 oz draft pour at ChurchKey. Black with tan head. Aromas of big roasted coffee, dark chocolate, light caramel. Tastes of dark chocolate, big roasted coffee, bitter roast, some booze. Medium body with a dry finish. Very coffee forward and almost on par with Founders Breakfast Stout.

From a bottle. Thanks jheath99. Pours very dark brown with a fizzy, bubbly light brown head. Tastes like burnt coffee, roasted coffee beans, roasted malt, rich chocolate, and booze. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like alcohol, coffee beans, and chocolate.

Big thanks to Dane for getting this long time want for me, and my first Georgia tick! Thick oily black stuff with a one in ten head. Nice coffee aroma, with some roast. Great slick mouthfeel, coffee, cream, light toffee, chocolate. Great stuff and now I permanently seek this and it’s variants.

"now were talking. if you’re not a sucker for good coffee like i am, this beer is most definitely not for you. it wasn’t the most balanced or subtle beer in the world, but damn was it good. the aroma is like a fresh pot o’ coffee brewing in your bottle. it settled down by the end enough to pick up malt and chocolate nuances as well. great. looked like motor oil with head, which is how i like my impy’s. at 8.1 it was a little weak, and while half of our party thought it was thin bodied, i;ll say it was just a touch under full, similar to Founders Breakfast. smooth. flavor still a little unbalanced and coffee dominated, but it’s Jittery Joe’s brand, and that’s some damn good coffee. finish is, you guessed it, bittersweet coffee and some roasted malt, with a kiss of chocolate and vanilla. very good. I’d give the flavor an 8 1/2 if i could...it started as an 8 or less, but was a 8-9 by the end of the bottle. i think it deserves a 4.3 overall, so i’m going with the 9."
