Wow. This was one of the best beers Iíve had in a while. Beautiful and dark with an amazing coffee smell. The taste was coffee-filled and out of this world. It was a remarkably light stout, but the coffee notes went through the entire beer. Great find. And, the girlfriend threatened me that I have to feed her this one more...

Flavor is malt dominate with some dark fruit esters; dry, semi-sweet finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

AirForceHops (2722) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 16, 2012
11. 2 oz. bottle from Julioís Liquors, REAL hefty price at $7.99 but I like coffee stouts soÖ. Why not? Served at cellar temp. The snifter showed real deep brown color with slight beige head. Decent head retention. Underwhelming nose. Light coffee and real light chocolate. Both weak. Flavor is bitter with tobacco, roasted barley and organic coffee notes. More organic coffee in a long finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Nothing about this made me think I was drinking an Imperial and for the price, I feel like I was cheated. No problems here, some good flavors but I was expecting MUCH more.

kramer (4690) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2012
11.2 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small light brown head. Looks pretty light in color for an Imperial Stout. The nose is pretty interesting. Thereís some nice coffee, chocolate, and roasty notes, but thereís also a bit of weirdness that comes out as almost a burnt rubber quality. The flavor is pretty well along the same lines, some nice qualities and some that I donít care for. The slight sweetness, some licorice, and some chocolate are good, but the low level of coffee and that odd acrid burnt flavor really lingers on in the finish. Itís a little too thin and lacking in texture. I like my Imperial Stouts a little more beefy and chewy. Not a beer that would be too high on my list to recommend.

Atom (1212) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle pours dark brown/black with a large tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, chocolate, roasted nuts, and coffee. Slick texture, taste similar to aroma finishing on bitter coffee. Nice.

jimhilt (2377) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Pours a two finger light tan head that fades slowly to a ring leaving a good lace. Deep brown color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Coffee nose and flavor is chocolate and coffee. $6.00 for a 330ml bottle from Tullyís Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

badlizard (5540) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Bottle. Black with a fluffy tan head. Aroma of espresso, grain, and dark chocolate. Tastes of espresso, cream, light sugar, and strong chocolate with a bready finish.

1FastSTi (3284) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Pours to a black body with a super tall frothy, lively, creamy tan head. Nice lacing too. The aroma is dry roasty chocolate malts with some coffee and lightly soapy hops/malts. A little light on the coffee. The flavor is dry cocoa powder like chocolate with a coffee and cream like component. I would have expected some "harsh" espresso like flavors, but itís pretty laid back in the coffee component. Perhaps this is truly a sweet stout? The palate is fairly sweet with very little sharpness/acidity from the coffee. Medium-light bodied. Slick and falls off the tongue.

illidurit (2051) - Petaluma, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Pours a dark brown color with some minor sediment and a creamy tan head. Aroma of cheap chocolate, slight ash, freeze-dried berries. Taste is slightly acidic with old coffee, milk chocolate, molding raspberries. Pretty uninspired but drinkable if a bit watery.
