The aroma is coffee & chocolate with some very light hoppiness. It’s sweet smelling, aromatic... really inviting and enjoyable.
The beer is a touch boozy, it’s got some good dark chocolate, it’s plenty bitter with lots of coffee and some espresso. Kinda sweet in a nice way...
The coffee in this is very well balanced, and actually could be a little more forward for my taste. Very smooth, easy drinking, with a rich, rounded profile and a somewhat less-than-over-the-top palate.

Bottle @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day. Pour is deep brown with a small tan head and good lacing. Big roast, cocoa, green coffee, oak, bread, and somewhat earthy aroma. Taste is dark fruits, caramelly, brown sugar, light cocoa, coffee, and wood with a light bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Very tasty and well-balanced, hard to believe it is 10%. weihenweizen (3735) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a snifter. Black with small brown highlights and small beige. Aroma is nice coffee, medium body, low carbonation, and some lacing. Taste is coffee and dark malt. drpimento (3568) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2017
Good Imperial Stout, but there’s not much coffee present. Aroma is dark malt and a little bit of black patent. Flavor is like nose. It’s fairly balanced between bitter and sweet and very easy drinking although the Finish is on the better side.
