Bottle (12 oz) 2011). Traded by jp7161, thanks! Black with a huge mostly lasting brown head and some lacing. Aroma is rich with coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is sweet and moderately bitter with strong dark chocolate notes, coffee and hints of caramel. Mouthfeel is silky and creamy. Medium carbonation. Good balance and drinkability. Not as decadent as I thought it would be but still a very good chocolate/coffee Imperial Stout. If have a too choose a non-barrel aged coffee Imperial Stout, I would pick Dieu du Ciel Péché Mortel before this one though.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 Gillar man kaffestout är den finfin... Utseende: något mörkbrunt skum & svart öl Arom: Espresso, espresso & kavring... Smak: balanserad fyllig, god kaffesmak, efterhängande kaffebäska snarare än humlebäska

Jet black pour, toffee head. Coffee & dark roast malt in the nose. Sweet. Middle is velvety chocolate, coffee, and oats. Finish is more of the same with some hop bitterness signing off. Alcohol is well cloaked.

Aroma is deep roasted malts with cold coffee and dark chocolates. Taste is medium bodied full flavored stout. Cold brewed coffee, smooth oatmeal mouthfeel, light salt and light tobacco as well. A treasure when you have the cravings for pro-stout, but don't wanna break the 10% barrier. When you're having your brekfast for example.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2017 12oz bottled 9/01/2017 8.3% ABV 60 IBU poured into pilsner glass. Out of the fridge this stout is coffee and coffee over coffee and chocolate, too much coffee for me! I let it warm up to room temperature and found it a bit easier to drink. Very disappointed on my first bottle, perhaps a bit over-hyped.

It’s no “Imperial Breakfast Stout”, but it will have to do. It’s a finely flavored Stout, holds up against all competition.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2017 ABV - 8.3 IBU - 60 .Appearance: Pitch black, motor oil, small brownish tan head that dissipates quickly. .Aroma: Powerful scent of roasted coffee upfront, gourmet ground coffee, toffee/caramelized sugar, but mostly just a very rich, beautiful coffee scent. .Taste: Roasted coffee, raw coffee bean, very slight warming alcohol, very nice malt sweetness giving way to an earthy bitterness, the bitterness builds into a very long finish, lingering on the palate. .Mouthfeel: Luxurious cream like texture most likely a result of the added oats, carbonated just right, very smooth. .Overall: A .This beer is something else. A coffee lovers dream, but so much more. It's done right. Right amount of bitterness. Perfect subtle sweetness. Long, smooth finish leaving a delicious taste that won't go away. Everything you can ask from an imperial stout and then some. Coffee bomb. Fantastic.

Wow. Of all the stouts that are described to have coffee in the flavour profile, this is the one that lives up to that.more than the rest I've had. Pours black. Coffee aroma, savory nose carries into a savory flavor, very much tastes of coffee with some dark chocolate just peeking through, giving way to oats. It's tastes as it's pitched, chocolate coffee oatmeal. Savory as opposed to sweet, perhaps mature tasting is a good way to think of it? Leaves a long, pleasant aftertaste. I'm glad to finally get my hands on this, it's a masterful example, and lived up to the hype.

From Jul 2007 This one was aquired in a trade with Wasatch. Thanks, John! This pours from 12oz bottle a near pitch black with a very small tannish head of foam that dissipated quickly. I took the bottle straight out of the fridge so I'm going to take my time in enjoying this brew. The smell has some nice roasted malt and I'm also gettting some dark fruit and toffee. The taste, wow, to start off with, this is a very thick and chewy stout translating to a very nice mouthfeel. I'm getting lots roasted malt and sweet malt goodness that is followed up by notes of coffee and coffee bitterness but the thing is, although it's so darned loaded with flavours..oh, there's the toffee I noted in the nose and there's some good chocolate *and* hot cocoa presence as well...anyway, I'm equally impressed with how smooth it is to drink and how well the alcohol is hidden. This one has drinkabilty written all over it. A few more sips in and the flavours haven't diminished one iota but sadly, the amount of liquid in my glass *has* and that makes me sad. This is terrific stuff! And...I'm having it for breakfast; how apropos. The finish for me is both bitter and sweetish and the aftertaste lingers on and on. Bottom line: I finally got the chance to try this highly touted Double Stout and it did not fail to impress. It's a MUST try for those who don't find it in their local market.
