Bottle courtesy of JStax, thank you! Nearly black color, brown head with good retention. Aroma of double fudge brownies dipped in espresso. Taste is sweet rich fudge and dark roast coffee, mild earthiness, great body. Delicious. drpimento (3627) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Wow super well-balanced dialed in Imperial order. Aroma is lots of cocoa and coffee. Flavor is like nose sweet dominates but not overly so. Perfect body in Finnish. Great drinking beer. Homer321 (5070) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2017
Bottle thanks to bytemesis. Nose is huge in coffee followed by by fudge. Light milk sugar sweetness with a coffee and cream thing going on. Smells great. Nearly black with a light tan head. Taste is fudge up front followed quickly by a medium roast coffee. Sharp but not burnt or overly roasted. Light balancing sweetness. Almost could use a little more mouthfeel. The coffee seems to thin it out a bit. Some light sugar sweetness in the very finish with just a touch on the lips. A light alcohol warming. Pretty dang good. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2017
22. Thanks, S! Pours an opaque dark mahogany with a dense and creamy tan head. Big dry coffee and baking chocolate nose, with deep dark chocolate and cocoa nibs showing. Creamy thick body with moderate carb. Coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, and baking chocolate on the mid palate. Long dry earthy finish.

(On tap @ Bottlecraft Liberty Station, SD, April 1/17) Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma of roast cacao nibs, medium-full roast coffee, not too aggressively bitter though, with nuts, semi-sweet dark malts, nice and full. Flavour full of chocolate and cacao, pretty strong dark coffee, somewhat sweet dark malt, light vanilla, low roasted grain character, relying on the coffee for light roast. No alcohol. Medium full body, smooth carbonation. Pretty coffee focused, conveys the mocha flavour well, not exceptionally complex but pretty polished. fiulijn (20491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2017
Tasting at Matt’s, 01-10-17fiery_1 (969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2017
Black color, medium brownish head. Nice aroma of ground coffee, cocoa, truffles. Full bodied and smooth; the dark malt is not too roasty, blends well with the coffee and the dry cocoa, and the moderate sweetness.
650ml bottle @ Matt’s. Pour a dark opaque brown with a thin beige head. Nose is amazingly good, the coffee and chocolate presently really well. Flavour is a bit rough, as in not smooth. The coffee is there some chocolate. I’m guessing the lighter body allows the alcohol to feel more prominent. It’s ok, but it could do with some thickening and better masking of the alcohol.
