750 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a dark brown to black with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has notes of toffee, roasty coffee, molasses, and bitter dark chocolate. Roasty and moderately bitter throughout. Bigger body and slightly chewy. Moderate carbonation. deyholla (12439) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2016
On tap at Haute Dish. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has dark grains and strong coffee with some roasted malts underlying. Flavor combines dry roasted malts and coffee with bitter dark grains backing. BuckeyeBoy (8568) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2016
750ml bottle pours out dark brown topped with a tan head. Nose is big coffee roast malts and chocolate. Taste is more of the big coffee roast malts and sweet milk chocolate. zizzybalubba (1887) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2016
On tap at Lucky Pie, Denver, CO. Dark brown, almost black, pour with a creamy beige head. Rich roasted coffee aroma with light floral hops.

Same as smell but falls a bit short in terms of vibrancy.
Silky smooth mouthfeel.
Very impressive, not overly strong, Imperial. I dig it immensely.
Grunt fill from Albertsons. Almost black pour with full, thick, creamy beige head. Mild aroma of coffee and chocolate.. Taste brings some mellow bitterness, the coffee blending well with the dark malts and dome low key sweetness. Incredibly smooth. Bitterness lingers on the palate Iphonephan (7327) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - AUG 20, 2016
On draft at the brewery. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of coffee. Flavors of coffee and licorice. Bitter toast finish. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2016
(750ml bottle) Pours a black body with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, graham cracker, and vanilla. Flavor of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, nuts, and caramel with a dry finish. JohnGalt1 (1721) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Pours with a nice long lasting 1" dark tan head atop a very dark brown brew that does let a little light pass... only spotty lacing. anthony850 (473) - Andover, New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2014
The nose shows plenty of coffee goodness... but there is a surprising and definitely discernible dark malt profile.... even a little bit of dried fruitiness that lingers even when cold.
The coffee is still very present on the palate, but a bit of acrid dark malt is a little bit distracting to me... the fruitiness is also there, but is more as a lingering element on the finish... pretty dry throughout...
Body is a solid medium with a nice ever present small bubble carbonation... sorta a creamy mouthfeel...
Great smooth stout with chocolate and caramel. Great desert beer.
