On tap at St Augustine’s on The Drive in Vancouver. A black beer with tan head and evident coffee nose. It’s a coffee bomb, as advertised, but lacking in the depth and complexity one would find in, say, Peche Mortel. 3.5 Sask89 (532) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 2, 2018
Pours pitch black with a creamy mocha head. Aroma is slightly muted but with noticeable coffee and chocolate scents. Taste is rich but not overly sweet with a nice lingering dry bitterness. Full body, creamy on the palate, and nicely carbonated. Overall a fantastic beer. daniele (10054) - ITALY - OCT 1, 2017

Black, small tan head.Tinny roast nose,brown sugar notes.Massively bitter roast espresso palate, too much so. Medium body,low carbonation Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2017
355 ml bottle, cellared for 13 months. Hueless deep dark brown, fading mocha foam. Aroma of dark roasted malt, coffee, some chocolate. Taste is mostly deep dark roast and bitter strong coffee, some sweet chocolate and treacle help smooth it out, relatively easy for an Impy. Softer carbonation, full bodied, lightly hopped.

330ml bottle. Pours an unclear dark brown almost black with a small, mostly lasting, tan head that laces. Strong aroma of espresso with roasted malt and just a hint of dark chocolate. Strong espresso flavour with roasted malt, dark chocolate and molasses in a dry, bitter finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Delicious. If you like coffee, you’ll like this beer. rubyroo (146) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 23, 2016
Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Appearance is a brownish black with a tiny ring of tan head. Sparse spots of lace. Taste is dark roast coffee, caramel, ash, vanilla, chocolate. Palate is medium bodied with a lingering roasty flavour and slight astringency. Overall- a decent imperial stout. Good flavours and balance. bulldogops (2885) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2017 2017.12.03 - Bottle #3 in the Central City/P49 Winter Wonder pack.
Rating #2280 - 2015.12.24- Bottle #24 in the 2015 P49/Central City Craft Crossing Beautiful dark brown pour with a fairly foamy tan head with mild lacing. Aroma is coffee, earth, mild alcohol, lots of espresso earthy notes on the palate. Medium-heavy alcohol warmth but not super boozy on the palate. Big coffee forwardness, and the sweet molassesy notes that linger. tmalaher (307) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 14, 2016
Pow. Double whammy of coffee and alcohol. Handle with care. Yummy. Treat it as an aperitif SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2016
Ça sent le café sans être explosif. Caramel et chocolat complètent les données olfactives. La première gorgée est agréable. Les suivantes confirment les intentions annoncées. Un impérial stout au café bien fait mais peu extravagant avec son manque d’audace et son corps pas tout à fait structuré comme le commande généralement le style. Petite bouteille bue en flippant des grillades sur la barbecue.
