3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Klobys. Pours black with thin tan head. Lots of coffee on the nose. The coffee dominates the palate and overshadows the beer. Could probably tone the coffee down a few notches...

15/VIII/15 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle @ We’re drinking all of Rich’s American beers tasting - BB: n/a, 2013 vintage (2015-1069) Thanks to omgrich for sharing the bottle!
Clear very dark brown to black beer, creamy irregular beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots and lots of coffee, roasted. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet start, very roasted, coffee, bit sugary. Aftertaste: little bitter, nice roast, sourish touch, caramel, sweet, lots of coffee. Too much for me...

1 - Deep black reddish brown with a coffee beans and oatmeal aroma. Fairly light bodied with a bit of heat. It’s a nice straight up coffee beer. 3.7
2 - am preferring the nose on this, subtle cinnamon entwines nicely with the coffee. Light bodied, great coffee flavor and cinnamon. Really really nice. 4

This imp stout poured a deep black colour with a big, tan head. Scents include lots of coffee, dark chocolate and paint thinner? First swig was quite nice with lots of flavour. Coffee, cocoa and roasted Malta are most prominent. Finish is roasty as hell with coffee lingering.

Poured a dark brown, clear, minimal tan buddbly head. Aroma was roasted coffee and malts, oatmeal, and chocolate. Flavor had all of that with coffee being prominent and some vanilla and a nutty presence. Full body and a nice creamy texture. No alcohol noted, but a slight bitter coffee bite to finish. Superb!
