Black pour with small beige head. Aroma of huge coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, lactose and hops. Taste of espresso coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, lactose, vanilla, slight oak and subtle barrel notes. Full bodied, medium carbonation, perfectly balanced, slightly bitter coffee on the finish.

Satyroneto (340) - BRAZIL - OCT 18, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2016 On Tap at "The Gage", Chicago. Cor negra com espuma bege escura de baixa formação e média persistência com excelente lacing. Aroma licoroso, intenso e muito agradável de café, chocolate ao leite, baunilha e leve madeira (barris de uísque) Sabor inicial de café e chocolate com meio mais doce (geléia de café) e final torrado com leve amargor, mas refrescante; retrogosto intenso de torrado e com dulçor de chocolate. Corpo sedoso e média carbonatação, sem percepção do álcool; alta drinkability, ainda mais para uma imperial Stout.

Dogbrick (12234) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Sample at the brewery taproom. Pours black with a medium foamy beige head that diminishes gradually to an outer ring. Patchy lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of roasted coffee, malt, dark chocolate and vanilla. Full-bodied with a roasty coffee and malt character, with bittersweet chocolate and vanilla notes. The finish is strong coffee and malt. Really good all around.

Marheb (5268) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 5, 2016
(En fût à la source): Richesse et onctuosité des saveurs de haut niveau, rien ne s’échappe de la meute mais l’ensemble est uniformément décadent.

commonshawn (1108) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2016
Tap at stanleys at the blackout beer fest with commonmac. 6 oz pour. Black with nice tan head. Complex almost confusing aroma, sweet and bitter clashing a bit. Boozy nose too. Wow. Tastes amazing. Sweetness is perfect upon this pillow of stoutness. Finish only gets bitter at the very end. It’s basically as if great coffee was also a beer. This is one of the best stouts I’ve had.

katrinaez (1616) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Light aroma hides really thick stout taste with just the right amount of coffee notes. A strong but not overwhelming 12%. Tap (and got the last one!)

Draught @ Taproom no 307. Inky black with small tan spongy head, mocha aroma, bitter chocolate-coffee beans taste, full body, medium carbonation, long bitter mocha finish with alcohol undertones. Great stout!

So rich! Milk, cream, coffee, vanilla. Bourbon is kept in check. Coffee-sharp finish. A smooth, sweet blend. This was enjoyed at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational and may have been the best beer at the fest.
