4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours rich, warm sable with a thick and frothy tan head. Aroma fills the nose with quality roast coffee, toasted malt, molasses, and subtle honey and woody notes. I could inhale this all day! Flavor does not disappoint - toasted malt, quality roast coffee, chocolate, oak and honey notes dance across the tongue. Mouthfeel has firm body and fairly good fizz, leaving a finish that has coffee, roast malt and woody tones. Danged near perfect, as far as i am concerned - probably would keep you up all night if not for the alcohol.

Thick black pour with some faint light showing on the edges. A little shake on the pour gives rise to one finger of mocha tan head. Aroma is dominated by coffee, big time. Roasty with some dark fruit skins and a creamy dessert-ish note on the end. Some toasted coconut as well. Medium full bodied with a big showing of coffee. Some dark fruit and burnt sugar on the back of the mouth with a touch of alcohol. Molasses.

Decently rich porter with an added coffee element. Honey comes through a little in the aroma with some floral notes. Creamy texture and big body. Nice straight up porter.

My Bottom Line:
Rich coffee develops roastiness and minty accents in this comfortable dessert of an Imperial Stout.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the blackness.
-The flavor profile is not as deep as the aroma.
-The finish is sweet and easy. Bitterness is not prevalent.
-While this one doesn’t have a huge following, it deserves recognition in the vastly popular Coffee Imperial Stout universe.
On tap at World of Beer, Charlotte .
