(Bottle) Pours an inky black color. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste includes copious amounts of dark chocolate, coffee, and burnt caramel. Creamy, full mouthfeel and low carbonation. Didnt pick up very much oat in this, but an excellent beer nevertheless.

Merry Christmas to me! Enjoyed on christmas morning in my Surly Darkness goblet. Pours a thick oily black with a creamy mocha head. Smell- Lots of dark chocolate and roasty goodness. Taste- Coffee roast and ash balanced off with lactic sourness from the oats. Chocolate is actually subdued in the taste. Very creamy mouthfeel which finishes dry and bitter. Definitely an eye opener

Pours black as night with a rediculous amount of chocolate head that dies slow. Smells of roast, dark chocolate and intoxicating coffee. Taste as it smells with the oatmeal making a presence as well. Feels medium in the mouth and smooth as silk. This is mighty tasty out of the bottle and not much different from when I had it on tap. Extremely drinkable, just like a cup of incredible joe with a brewers twist.

Sincerly let down. The coffee tasted and smelled like day old coffee grinds... Would like to give this another try, as it was drank at the end of a tasting.... and I was a little ROASTY!

On tap, big chocolate and toffee aromas with a hint of pine in the background. Dark as night with a smallish tan head. Nice and thick, really adhered to the inside of the glass. Light on the palate makes it a pretty easy drinking beer. Sweet up front with a slightly dry, bitter finish. Lots of roasted notes and dark toasted chocolate flavors. Enjoyable for sure.

This one has been sitting in the fridge for a while and im not sure why i pulled it out now other than the fact it had been staring at me asking me to drink it for so long. Pours like any other stout black with a minimal brown head. Completely opaque. Big coffee aroma. Getting some licorice in there as well. Coffee and melted milk chocolate flavors are delectable. Slight hop flavoring to balance all the crazy ass malt out. This is one of the more entertaining impy stouts ive had in a while.
