ineedbeer (2329) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 4, 2017
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is full or rich chocolate with some moderate coffee and coconut notes. Lighter vanilla. Hints of alcohol warmth. Pours black with a small, thick, mocha head that recedes to the edges where it lingers. No lacing and moderately long legs. Flavor is very sweet with lots of chocolate, fudge notes with lighter roast. Moderate coffee notes with lighter coconut and faint vanilla. Moderate bitterness with medium light alcohol spice. Mouthfeel is medium full to full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer but I wish the vanilla and coconut were more prevalent and even the coffee has faded a bit.

Bottle. This is real malty-roasted bomb with lots of coconut, vanilla, fudge, light to moderate coffee accents, slightly spicy. Heavy sweet, balanced with some moderately bitter roasted notes. In overall on my top list of non-BA stouts.

hopscotch (11487) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2017
Draft… This beer rocks!… Pours murky and black with a mid-sized, creamy, tanned head. Good retention. The aroma is a lush mélange of fudge, toasted coconut, vanilla and café Cubano. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor offers decadent notes of fudge, charcoal, vanilla, café Cubano, toasted coconut and sticky vanilla beans. A hefty, sweet malt bill is balanced pretty nicely by deeply roasted, bittersweet, burnt, black malts. Lengthy, roasty, carbonic, dark-mocha finish. Another world-class imperial stout treatment from John!

2017 bottle. Black with a slight head. Aroma is roast and chocolate Taste is oxidation, aluminum, roast. Slight vanilla. I don’t know if this was a bad bottle or 2017 isn’t the same, but this wasn’t impressive at all.
