2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Opaque black with a nice dense inch dark tan head. A amateur mix of ingredients with the grass hops and roasted coffee malts giving this an unpleasant taste. A chalky residue, along with several other characteristics makes me think this did not age long enough before bottling.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (as "Cismontane Imperial Stout with Coffee Added", 8.5% from beergium). Pours dark brown with light brownish head. Aroma is beany, coffee, roast, fruits, sour notes, booze. Flavor is sweet and bitter, beany, coffee, malt, fruits, fructose, roast, something medicinal - iodine maybe. Finish is coffee and sweetness with more beaniness and booze. Overall: feels like kind of crappy recipe and beany coffee notes are just trying to cover it. Then again I can drink it without effort, so not even close to the sh*t zone for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beergium. Aroma is dark fruits, coffee, mocha, roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, touch of vanilla, berries, charred wood. Flavour is above moderate sweet and bitter with a hint of sour. Body is medium. Curious one, lots of coffee and berries/fruits, unexpected note of sour, bit rough, complex or flawed? I’m not sure to be honest. Anyway, interesting to say the least, good coffee.

1.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
It was for sale at the Beer and Wine store for $5.99.
I’d never heard of this brewery or the beer so I said, "What the heck. Why not?"
On the Pour:
It was very opaque. I could see, right from the start, that it was WAY too over-filtered (my pet peeve).
The head was only light khaki. The color you’d expect from a pale beer.
Coffee and some lightly roasted grains. That’s it.
The mouthfeel was alright. More than I thought it would be but still not great from what I expect from a stout.
The coffee was the overwhelming flavor. behind that was some roasted malt. But mostly coffee.
BUT. And this is a big ’But’.
When the canister of coffee tells you to mix 5 tbsp of coffee to 5 cups of water, but instead you mix 2 tbsp of coffee to 5 cups of water… That is the strength of coffee that I’m getting. It’s the only flavor but it’s very faint.
I’m not impressed AT ALL.
This was not a good first impression of this brewery. And I probably will not sample any of their other beers if I come across them.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours an opaque dark brown color with khaki colored head. Burnt grain, and a sugary sweetness on the nose, weird aroma; same for the palate. The malt almost tastes smoked or burnt. Very off flavors.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
At brewery. One of the worst coffee stouts I have ever had. Taste like Greene I roasted coffee beans. Astringent and gross aroma is the same. Nice head.
