Reviewed 12/23/2012. 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a pitch black color with great opacity. The head is a one finger khaki color with low retention. On the plus side, this leaves nice lacing where it can. S: Itís very rich with coffee, as expected. There are also underlying notes of dark fruit, roasted malts, and plenty of chocolate. It really does strike me as being similar to a good mocha cappuccino. Actually, make that a great one. T: Well, it smells like mocha cappuccino, and it tastes like mocha cappucino. Man, this is fuckiní tasty. It starts off with subtle roast, before giving way to an explosion of bittersweet chocolate, dark fruits, and coffee - lots of coffee, actually. I love how it stays in balance despite all of the intense yet competing flavors. Iím amazed how the coffee comes across as being both subtle and monstrous at the same time. M: On the sweeter side of a stout in terms of how it finishes and lingers on the palate. There isnít much coffee or roasted dryness here - the oats dominate the palate with lush, decadent smoothness. The low carbonation is appropriate for this beerís profile. O: The only thing this really lacks is drinkability - but thatís more of a testament to the staying power of the brilliant flavors than anything else. This is everything I want from a coffee stout. I expected something great here...yet this is so much more. Itís bold and massive, yet thereís a real sense of finesse and sophistication here.

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 @ Weíre drinking all of Richís 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...

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.

bigda83 (538) - Jamestown, New York, USA - APR 21, 2015
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!
