Pours black from the tap. Creamy head leaves good lacing. Full chocolate aroma with just enough hop. Flavor is chocolate and expresso. Palate keeps some of the malt sweetness but remains dry and flavorful. Nice. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Nearly black in color with a brown head. Aroma? Coffee. All coffee. Maybe a hint of dark bitter chocolate. Flavor is coffee and coffee and more coffee. This beer actually tastes like coffee with a hint of chocolate creamer. Wow, intense. danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Served on draft at Stone’s 16th Anniversary Celebration. The appearance is a deep brown with a nice brown head with some bubbles. This guy is pure medium to dark bodied coffee. Really pure wonderful coffee profile. Some sweet cream and light cocoa powder notes as well. Medium full mouth with a touch of chalkiness. I really enjoy this one. Will have to try some more from Latitude 33. skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2013
On tap at urge. Pours a black-brown with a small tan head. Aroma is of coffee, roasted malts, bakers coco, and some molasses. Taste is similar with a lot of nice coffee notes. Has a medium body with a super creamy moutfheel and a oily, mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a pretty tasty and drinkable stout that has a lot of nice coffee flavors. brokensail (16601) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Dark brown pour with a tan head. Roasted malt, tons of coffee, and a nice earthiness. Some nice toffee and molasses sweetness, chocolate, and maybe a bit of lactose. The flavor is nice and rich with tons of coffee, chocolate, and toffee. Molasses, some earthy notes, lots of roast, and a slight creaminess. Good mouthfeel, too.

Aroma: lots of coffee, chocolate fudge and caramel, rich and roasty.
Appearance: jet black and mostly opaque, tan head with average retention and just a bit of lacing.
Taste: rich chocolate and plenty of coffee, molasses and caramel, toast and roasty malts, a bit of sweetness, fairly dry coffee finish, bitterness is mellow and lets the malt and coffee take center stage. Palate: medium to full body, low silky carbonation.
Overall: really nice coffee stout, I like that its a manageable abv, good balance. yespr (46530) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 From tap at the Stone Bistro. Pours pitch black with a huge tan head. Aroma is dense toffee coffee. Smooth and dense, yet not offensive. Bitter, dry and solid coffee into a smooth coffee malty light sweet finish. This is cold coffee more than beer, but I like it.8-4-8-4-16=4.0anders37 (26824) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2012

Best beer they have. Chocolate and French roast aroma. Woody and cocoa in flavor big time. Some alcohol that was enjoyable nice roasted malt finish. peteinSD (1469) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Black pour with a quickly fading tan head. Aroma is fresh coffee, roast, oatmeal, and chocolate. Taste is coffee, oatmel, roast, chocolate, hop bitterness, a bit of raisin, and some light sweetness. Even, creamy mouthfeel. Great beer! Not sure if tagging it as an imperial was the right call but it’s a nice roasty stout with a dominant coffee presence and some darker fruit notes lurking under the hops.
