2006 bottle courtesy of ross. A jet-black pour with a smallish chestnut head. An aroma full of rich and roasty coffee, caramel, chocolate and dark cherries. Full, velvety-smooth body. Starts with some caramel and chocolate and finishes with plenty of dark coffee and hoppy bitterness. A lingering flavor that is very reminiscent of the last overly-sweetened sips of a cup of coffee that has long since gone cold. This is a real treat.

Bottle from illinismitty. Pours pitch black, decent dark tan head. Nose is inky black malt, cherry, alcohol, mocha, decent hop presence. Flavor is deep rich malt, lots of wonderful dark burnt sweetness, dark dark cherry, coffee is there but not overly aggressive. Nice silky body.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2008 An almost black pour with a dark tan head. If chocolate came in flavors this would be alochol scented chocolate. An alcohol and raisin like flavor with the coffee, choco and alcohol being evident. A slight graininess in the palate but full bodied and flavorful. A damn fine beer that was lost in my frige for over 2 months.

Wow, coffee up front, that’s fine. Pretty smooth flavor, alcohol is very well hidden, be careful with this brew! lol! Poured jet black, with a small tan head that left quickly, almost like a cup of ice coffee. Dark malt, somewhat sticky, good though! thanks to Sprinkle for the great brew!

unclemattie (4220) - Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2007 This is my FAVORITE out of all of Terrapin’s Monster Beers. They are contracted with a coffee shop in Athens, Ga. (jittery Joe’s) They created a coffee blend just for this batch that they sell. Not a good coffee, but perfect to go with these malts that Spike uses! Be careful, you can drink more of this Imperial than you realize, Maybe the caffeine? Dark in color, not much of a (slightly tan) head. Sweet espesso flavor that is out of this world!

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 Thanks for the beer, lilkem. The body was black with an orange and brown colored head. The aroma was chocolate with syrup and coffee. There was also a bit of peanuts. The taste was a little bit of chocolate with some syrup and a bit of almonds. I thought that this was a little thin. Nothing bad here, but oatmeal coffee stouts are not my favorite thing.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop is part of their Monster Beer Tour of 2006. It poured a head of foamy finely sized dark brown colored bubbles that was long lasting and left behind a opaque body with no visible carbonation a dark black color and a good lacing. The strong aroma was malty with chocolate coffee and dark malty notes. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish. The thick flavor contained notes of heavy malt and dark malts with a mile malt bite. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

(2006 Tour) Shared with skibumphishead. Tasty imperial light. Not as in your face like most imp stouts, but a nice example of a lighter version of the style. THANKS TO CAPTAINCOUGAR FOR THIS BOTTLE!!

ABUSEDGOAT (2413) - California, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Thanks to iowaherkeye for this one. Black pour with a light tan head. Aroma is good coffee, oats, roast, chocolate, caramel, light hops. Flavor is the same with a somewhat silky mouthfeel. Lacks the body and complexity of some bigger Impys out there, but still very enjoyable.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 12-oz., trade with JRob. Good god, what a delicious aroma. This beer pours an almost light-sucking, horsehead-nebula black. There’s a little ring of obligatory tannish head-like substance near the top; it’s a boutannier compared to the bouquet other stouts bring to the prom.
The nose is where it leaves the other stouts to the side, though: this one’s burnin’ nitro and everyone else is happy just to be blown or injected, one or the other: cookie dough, chocolate, oats, vanilla, cola. This is probably the first beer to make me genuinely grateful for having picked up the habit of stopping and smelling a beer consciously.
The body’s not much to look at; succulent black color but no visible carb, nothing happening up top or on the sides. The attack, though, man; there’s loads of coffee, chocolate, and oatmeal--as you’d fully expect--and they carry through to the finish. The hops are just there to clean things up and get you propped back up to vertical before you fall off the cliff. This is just a yummy stout, though, for the uninitiated, it’s closer to a Sweet than an Imperial. This isn’t a 6-pack beer, it’s a by-the-case beer.
