COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our quest to brew the quintessential coffee beer began over a cupping with the coffee gurus from Richmonds Lamplighter Roasting Company. Their Ethiopia Sidamo coffee was masterfully roasted to highlight the single origin beans bright, crisp body and distinctive blueberry undertones, making it harmonize beautifully with our Russian Imperial Stout. May this beer warm your spirits in these brisk winter months.

Pours coffee brown with a nice buff head. Aroma features coffee, woody hop, toasted malt and coffee notes. Flavor delivers sweet mocha, roasted malt and molasses tones - delicious as all-get-out. Mouthfeel offers firm body and sassy fizz. Get yer coffee!

dmac (6103) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Bottle from Bluedog. Poured a medium to thicker body dark black with a creamy super light tan head. Aroma seems to be older, brown paper bag, old nut shells, sugary sweetness, burnt toast and more sweetness. Flavor of coffee cups, sugar, light hint of coffee, earth, touch of pepper and bad chocolate muffins. Medium to slightly fuller body and softer carbonation.

CloakedDagger (2370) - - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle 75 cl. Pours an almost opaque black only with a very vague reddish hue, head is creamy beige. Sweet vanillaish coffee aroma. Rich, sweet body, roasty, bitter chocolate and then fairly well integrated coffee accents. Finish is a little boozy. Nice if a little to the sweet side. 060916

metalhead0043 (207) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2016
750 ml from Total Wine (Springfield, VA) for 14 bucks. Pours black with a small tan-colored head. Aroma is some coffee with fruit underneath. Taste is some chocolate with coffee on the back end. Body is a bit thinner than I like in an imperial stout, slightly creamy though. Overall a solid imperial stout but not amazing.
