UPDATED: FEB 6, 2009 This beer is just one of the finest in the stout department. It has perfect color and thickness with a huge roasted coffee and dark chocolate aroma/flavor, all while being not too sweet, and not too bitter. Creamy and soft on the palate with a full body. The mouthfeel is unbelievably smooth. This stuff is phenomenal.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee! Wonderful roasted malt aroma......and pitch black with a minute brown lacing. The flavor is an coffee shop unreal I am so lucky o be able to enjoy this as often as I do.....the finish is amazing as it leaves a vanilla, espresso and a extremely bitter chocolate bite. supurb.

Bottles courtesy of Bockeyhorsey and Sparky27. Deep black color with a nice creamy brown head that lasted and laced forever. Great aroma of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and roasted rich caramel..Flavor is wonderful as well. Coffee, chocolate, dark ripe fruit, vanilla and oats. Creamy and palate coating. This is a fantastic Impy Stout. Thanks Bill and Eric!

Bottle. Pours very black, with a creamy tan head. Aroma is coffee, oats, cream, and toffee. Flavor similar, with a burnt roasty bitter finish from the dark malts. Very smooth, tad bit of alcohol in finish. Excellent beer.

Not quite its kin "Kentucky Breakfast", but a damn fine beer. Pours to a burnt coffee black, with thick tan head hat dissipated fairly quickly and left decent lacing. Immediate nose of coffee, vanilla, chocolate and toffee, all blended together. As the beer warms around mid-glass, the 8.3 abv rolls nicely into the mix as well. Mouthfeel is full and sweet, with a hint of spiciness. Taste is truly a pleasure, as each of the ingredients in the nose take turns dancing ont the tongue, with the alcohol rounding them all up for a long warming finish. Most enjoyable.

Bottle shared for breakfast by decaturstevo. Poured black with a tall creamy brown head that is lasting and left big chunky lace. Huge coffee and chocolate aroma. Truly a breakfast beer with lots of roast coffee in the flavor. Full body that is bitter sweet and smooth. A very great stout!!

pitch black with mild tan head. Mild carbonation, thick mouthfeel. Roasted nose with some hints of coffee. Huge flavor, which well represents all three major ingredients oats, coffee, and chocolate very well. Some roasted malt in there as well. Not a style I am incredibly famaliar with, but its very flavorful, but the flavors dont meld perfectly, though I think this is more of a style characteristic. Very good beer

Pours very thick and dark and near pitch black with a thin brown head. Roasty and bitter dark coffee, turning creamy in the middle with the bitterness returning towards the finish. Notes of chocolate as well but I noticed that probably a little more in the aroma than the flavor, where coffee seems to be the strongest flavor by far. This is a good beer, maybe a little thin and straight forward to warrant a higher rating but certainly a solid drink.
