Pours a dark black with a thin khaki head. The aroma is strong coffee, espresso, sweet mile chocolate. The flavor is the same as the aroma. A beautiful beer.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2017 From 0.65l bottle with 12.7%abv.: Pours black oily, opaque, with creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted grain, malts, vanillin, coffee, cacao nibs, ash, sherry-like bourbon. Flavor just follows: roasted grAin, intense (dark) malts with notes of toasted toffe, espresso, bitter&milk chocolate, hint of cacao, vanillin, bourbon. Alcohol warmth is noticeable, finish is dry. Body thick, texture velvetly, carbonation is low. A masterpiece. For 11$ is hard to get better imperial.

Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Pours a dark brown almost black color with a chocolate and boozy aroma. Taste is warming, coffee, espresso, with a good boozy burn in the chest after the swallow. A light medicine flavor in the end but overall nice. Made with Dark Horse coffee.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2017 This is a great imperial stout. The bourbon is really balanced into the beer, but the coffee disappears from sip to sip.

Skinnyviking (9584) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2017
Bottle. Low fluffy creamy lasting brown head. Pitch black body. Cramy roasted malt coffee caramel vanilla aroma. Mild coffee cocoa roasted malt caramel vanilla flavor. Fair amount of hops bitterness. Long coffee finish. Very well balanced and the alcohol is nicely hidden by the sweetness of the beer.

UXO (1896) - CANADA - JAN 15, 2017
Appearance: opaque black with two fingers of fine dark beige head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: boozy, chocolate, roasty malt, coffee, dried fruit and red berries, hint of oak whiskey barrel. (9/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-high bitter. (8/10) Palate: full viscid body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter and warming finish. (5/5) Boo-yah! That’s how I like my beers - big and bad(-assed). Starts off smelling like a boozy chocolate milkshake, but then the almost-milky chocolate fades slightly, to be overtaken by coffee and whiskey-soaked dried berries. The ABV is impressive, contributing smooth heat with no hint of solvent or sharpness. (17/20)

mikeymike (75) - Kansas, USA - JAN 6, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2017 22oz bomber. Pours motor oil black with a one finger mocha head that rapidly dissipates. Aroma is strong coffee with chocolate and whiskey notes. Taste is coffee and whiskey in the front, followed by a very delicious lingering chocolate note. The chocolate stays with you for quite some time. Mouthfeel is oily, but not overbearing with a full body. Overall, a killer BA coffee stout worthy of a chase.

justsayswell (281) - Kansas City, Kansas, USA - JAN 4, 2017
Lots of dark, fresh ground coffee in the nose, followed by coffee, and a faint booziness. Low carbonation, smooth and velvety on the palate. Loads and loads of coffee, roast, some dark cocoa powder, and a little bourbon. Finishes with a ton of coffee. The abv is well hidden, and a tasty brew overall.
