2007 vintage, 12 oz bottle via trade with bgburdman9. Pours black with a big tan head that slowly dissipates into a thin light brown layer. The aroma is full of coffee, malt, smoke, burnt coffee beans and roastiness. The taste is big and sweet with a lot of coffee and chocolate coming through. This is a serious delicious stout, and I’m damn glad I’ve finally been able to try it.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2007
A mighty fine brew. Dark brown with a light brown colored head. Aroma of creme brulee and ground coffee. Creamy feel on the palate, with a really phenomenal flavor as well. Vanilla and cream, caressing coffee, chocolate, mocha and roast. Nice lingering finish. Balanced coffee additions, matches well with the malt. A great brew!

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - APR 21, 2007
Bottle, courtesy of jimbowood (big thanks!), pours a thick black with a very full dark tan head and no lacing. Aroma of coffee, coffee, more coffee, roasted malts and some chocolate. Flavor is a more subdued coffee, chocolate, and an overall roastiness. Very pleasant on the palate, albiet a bit lively, with a medium mouthfeel. This one seems to get the use of coffee quite well, great strong aroma without going overboard in the flavor and killing everything else. Nice!

Thanks to El Gordo for this one! Great thick, black-brown body with creamy off-white head. Aroma of chocolate and chewy nougat. Flavor of espresso and cherries arose from a strong but delectable breakfast beer. Very very nice!

I was pleased to drink this beer. I was thinking to myself, Terrapin has blended sweet, and bitter in an imperial stout? I opened this sucker, at a higher temperature than normal, so all of the flavors would come out. I was hit with the aroma of STRONG coffee right away. Almost a bit overpowering. Then I actually tasted the beer. I was very impressed with the palate. Creamy, smooth, not too carbonated, oily, all around great palate. The aroma just gets in the way of this beer, and the coffee taste is too much. I mean you say Coffee Oatmeal, I better be able to taste some friggin sweet notes in this beer, but I did not and when I thought I did it was very, very, very subtle. Great name, great look, decent smell, I just think that this beer should be Coffee Imperial Stout.

Black, oily, film for head. Aroma is all coffee up front, but not too overwhelming to me, for some reason. Licorice and chocolate background. Flavor consists of milk and dark chocolate, almost bitter like bakers cocoa, coffee, and residuel caramel/toffee sweetness. No hop presence whatsoever. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. As I am not a coffee fan, I’ve dreaded drinking this for quite some time, but really quite nice. Pleasantly surprised.

Way too malty for me. It ended up being a drain pour. Naturally, coffee was the overwhelming flavor. My friends were afraid to try it after seeing my reaction.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Pours thick & black forming a dark brown foamy head. Aroma of strong coffee’s (of course), malts, and toffee hops. Flavor is of strong coffee beer, somewhat smooth. Hop flavor towards he end that helps out. Fairly good, but not as refine as other imperial stouts.
