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.

The aroma is fantastic and could even set the standard for the style. It has coffee, chocolate, cream, burnt malt, hops, and molasses. The appearance is black with a small but nice tan head. The flavor is way to burnt and bitter with a acidic burnt coffee after taste. The palate is actually a little thin for the style. Overall its a beer worth having but in the end its not fantastic.

330 mL. Pours jet black with a menacing ultra dark tan head that dwindles to a thin layer leaver spotty lacing. Aromas of espresso, cocoa, coffee grounds, molasses. Taste is huge on the coffee but not too astringent or acidic. Nice oily, coating mouthfeel. Some ultra dark chocolate in the finish. 8.3% is nicely hidden. Excellent.

this is deffiniatly a coffee lovers dream. Aroma was dominated by roasted cofeee with a heaping of dose of dark chocolate. Poured pretty thick and it coated the mouth nicely, very velvety. Taste lingered for a while with its strong coffee and dark chocolate notes, everything about this was as promised no surprises. I just had to taste this one but it is not my style that is for sure. But on its merrits I give it a ........

This is up there among my favorite beers-- I was moping about the three I had in my basement from last years brewing when I found that the local beer store had a case. Its an incredibly deep and complex beer, and around Philadelphia Ive found that the biggest problem is that it gets served too cold (many bars serve pretty much everything at about the same temperature), and its so, so much better when it gets up above, I dont know, 50 degrees. Warm, cold, whatever-- an excellent beer.

Oily pour with thin chocolate/beige/tan head. Very light coffee smells, really didnt overwhelm me. Didnt get a nose full. Tastes like....cofee. Bitter dry oatmeal and hop finsh. This would definitely go good with bacon and eggs. Good stout.

I mainly get just the coffee on this beer. I was almost unsure that it was an imperial if I didnt already know it was one. Still very good if your dig coffee.

Bottle. Roasted malt and coffee aroma. Deep brown-black body, small brown head. Flavor is coffee all the way, with a hint of sweetness in the lengthy finish. If you love coffee, you will love this stout.
