The coffee lovers consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - APR 7, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2009 Black with a frothy milkshake brown head. Alcohol, milk chocolate and coffee aroma. Heavy duty coffee taste. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel with mostly coffee at the start and finish with chocolate in there too.

Bottle. Pours a fairly thin dense black with brown notes. Just a touch of head. Aromas of seriously heavy roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, walnuts, some coffee. Mouthfeel is very tight with mostly caramel, coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, and almost like a very smoky whiskey. Well done, but just too heavy in the bitterness. Needs some sweetness to balance it out a bit.

This is a hard to find beer on the West coast. Thanks Harpreet. Kind of funky aroma giving way to wood, chocolate, coffee, campfire, and a hint of fruit - not much. It has a small dissapearing dark brown head. The taste is sweet and sour with a heavy duty smoked wood bitter aftertaste. Hints of chocolate and coffee and a thick body give this beer a good balance between the sweet and bitter. A very lively brew with the alcohol not noticeable at 8.3. Not terribly complex, but tasty and satisfying.

So much coffee goodness, with a relatively low ABV for an imperial stout. Amazingly drinkable and very smooth and delicious. Black, with an almost perfect aroma for a coffee beer.

beer was drank fairly fresh. just tons and tons of super bitter coffee. i think i will like this one with age. alcohol was very previlent and couldnt get anything but coffee. i can tell the quality this is going to drink in about a year so maybe itll get a higher rating after some of the coffee mellows out.

A: Pours an Obsidian black, darker than a moonless night. It pours with a huge thunderous head with tons of tiny bubbles that get foamy on top, like sea foam in the gulf on a warm September afternoon. The head dies down to a nice cap but some of the foaminess is left behind sticking to the top of my snifter. S: Wonderful smelling stout. TONS of chocolate and fresh brewed coffee. There are hints of vanilla and perfectly roasted malt. This reminds me of my favorite cafe mocha which I happened to sip at a sidewalk caf in Paris. T: I really like great stouts and this is one of them. The flavors are off the scale. BAM in your face. Tons of rich creamy chocolate. Reminds me of the cocoa my grandmother (god rest her soul) used to prepare for me on a cold Indiana morning as a child. So chocolaty, sweet, and warming. All of that is then overtaken by a coffee taste as good if not better than the best espresso known to man. M: Medium bodied and a creaminess that is off the scale.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Smells of wet, sour coffee grounds and a bit of pipe smoke. Smoky, semi-sweet and sour and then dry coffee. Thick and smooth. Nice bitter finish. Quite good.

Dark brown with ruby highlights and a two finger brown lace leaving crown. Aroma of chocolate, oatmeal, coffee and roasted malt. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and oatmeal. Goes down pretty smooth and hides the alcohol well. Palate is medium and finishes up with a very mild hop presence with some chocolate and oatmeal mixed in.
