Trade from Sean9689, thanks bro. Release #13. Black body with a small brown head. Roasted malt, coffe, cocoa, whiskey notes, light smoke. The flavor is bitter hard roasted coffee with a light boozy whiskey finish. This is quite good.

dansac (114) - Loa Angeles, Alabama, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Very nice, bold imperial sout. Lots of chocolate, and coffee. Smooth texture to go with it. Hides the booze well; not crazy bitter, or smoky. Pretty good stuff!

luttonm (5555) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2013
6oz draft at Brouwers. Big dry coffee, a bit burnt. Amazing brown lacing, alc around glass. Milk chocolate, sweet alcohol, a little burn at the back of the tongue. Bitter chocolate finish. Great!

Frahmo (316) - Idaho, USA - DEC 25, 2013
release #19 10.4% ABV. 22oz bomber, poured pitch black with a brown head. Very strong coffee aroma and flavor. Hints of chocolate, but those were overwhelmed by a bitter coffee flavor that left a bitter almost dry aftertaste. Usually there is more chocolate in the flavor, just not this release.

Espresso coffee chunk. The end of a great GABF trip to Denver. Two trips no festival ratings but great experiences and trips to local pubs and breweries.

joet (2574) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Very well done. Black in color, small tan head. Chocolate, coffee, pome fruit, anise, lots of almond, bits of vanilla. Biscuit sweetness, cereal. Sweet, low alcoholic heat, touch of astringency, touch of tannic bitterness. Bits of particulate feel. Finishing with a touch of heat, touch of astringency. Mostly clean. Epic brews it all quite perfectly.

haddon90 (1633) - Newport Beach, California, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep black color with a nice, tan head. Sweet aroma with roasted coffee and cocoa. Intense flavor. Licorice, coffee, and chocolate. Amazing power. Such an impressive stout. I love having this every time!

TheHOFF43 (2048) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle by myself. Pours black with tan colored head. Aroma is amazing. Coffee and chocolate overwhelm my senses, just outstanding. Flavor is strong bourbon, lots of barrel but as it warms the coffee comes through nicely. Bitter chocolate compliments the coffee and bourbon. Really smooth, very drinkable.

Hypo_Luxa (59) - Osaka, JAPAN - DEC 23, 2013
Release #9 Coffee and cocoa aroma. Bitter, vanilla. A full bodied Coffee Bender. Mouthfeel is a bit creamy and sweet on the finish. Really good. Great desert beer.
