Bottle to pint glass
Chocolate, hazelnut, coffee, roasted malt, and coffee. It’s dark brown with a huge, frothy, 3 cm head, that reduces fairly quickly to 1cm. There’s a lot of lacing as a result. Taste is primarily coffee with chocolate, light sourness, caramel and toasted malt.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Black. Rich frothy creamy light brown layer of foam. Coffee. Cream. Sugar. Lots of sugar. Bigger medium body. Mild bitter. Mild to medium roast. Sweet. Coffee character is excellent. Too sweet. Hard to finish actually.

500ml bomber from Beer Bazaar. A bit of a foamy pour, heavily black body with a brown head, leaving a lot of lace. Nose is like diving into a chocolate coffee bean. Caramel. Light vanilla. But luscious, big, green coffee beans. Taste has more of a chocolate cocoa lead, with espresso, some lactose and caramel solidly there. Raw and a bit rough. Full bodied with a bit of alcohol. Finishes to the roasty bitter side of bittersweet. Definite fan. 15.9

Coffee (and some chocolate) comes thorough nicely. Sugar does too, a little too much in the finish, but still a great beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2015 Pours very thick, black colour with an apology for a head (which is not a flaw considering the high abv). Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted... subdued. Really sweet in the taste with chocolate and coffee, some noble alcohol and long, roasted finish. Very good beer but... in fact it is a bit too ordinary and lacks some compexity - I can find Polish Baltic Porters that offer more - both in the aroma and the taste (providing they are in their top form).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Viscous near black with a finely bubbled tan head. Bitter roast and raw coffee, undertones of capsicum and caramel, lots of residual sugars, very sweet with a bitter finish. Not as grand as I’d expected-- a bit simple; sweet without complexity.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
10.1% ABV. Imperial coffee stout.
Poured out of bottle 40°SRM, a thick syrupy black brown nectar. Beautiful.
Nose is full of understated, cocoa like flavors. There are some clean and neatly roasty flavors. Some nice sweet dates or like a fresh date pudding.
Beautifully balanced carbonation which for something like in an imperial stout is an infrequent enough thing.
If you thought the nose was date pudding, the palate is lightly fruity then roasted oats, barley toast, coffee, dark chocolate, cotton candy. Cleanest finish of any of the imperial stouts.
Homer big time!!!
Goes on favorites list!!
