ASak10 (56) - Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2014
2013 vintage. Sweet nose with coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Bitter coffee taste up front followed by the mellow smooth bourbon sweetness. Sticky syrupy body but also smooth, easy to drink. A great beer but for the price, with Espresso Yeti and Big Bad Baptist available for about a third, I don't see buying this again. It's well worth trying and an excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the dregs run. Pours black with a thin tan head. Strong coffee and chocolate aromas, more of the chocolate liqueurs vibe. More coffee on the taste, but quite well-integrated with the impy stout, not dominating. Best of the three today for me.
