CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 3, 2004
Pours a thick oily robust black with a dense tan head. Has a rich chocolatey mocha aroma with some hop presence. Body starts sweet with a dry coffee bean finish and caramel malt throughout. Good balance, but could be a bit thicker. Overall a very nice beer though, and one that IMO is more than 6% abv ;)

ben4321 (6668) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2009 Location: On tap at the downtown Atlanta location 4/16/09
Aroma: : Coffee, chocolate, roasted
Palate: Too thin I thought and not well balanced
Overall Impression: On the board they called this one the IMOS, I asked the waitress what IMOS stood for and she said she didn’t know! (Wow...)

The ratings here seem a bit high to me, I thought it was a pretty thin and watery stout...Not something I’m looking for in this style. It’s got a nice mix of ingredients, but the lack of body threw me off.
