Serving up cold and jet black, this imperial stout should be taken seriously for about one minute as the dark foam builds. Then, enjoy its velvety chocolate-covered smoothness and delicious aroma of sustainably-grown, locally-roasted coffee.

Bottle. pours pitch with a tan head. strong coffee nose hits me before i am done pouring it. smells like a starbucks frappucino from the gas station i have had on road trips. sweet creamy coffee flavor. roast bitterness lingers,. coffee and alcohol. find a way to put thc and nicotine and and it may be the universal beverage.

Nose of roasted chocolate coffee with a thin wispy head. decent lacing. smooth creamy velvet mouthfeel loads of chocolate malts and mild coffee. only a hint of booze. one of my favorite lips brews

Initially I had rated this lower, but I had just had Southern Tier Choklat before this so not a fair comparison. Overall, this is an attractvie and flavourful stout. Very nice.

Enjoyed via a bottled from Outpost Co-op on Capital Drive in Milwaukee. Pours a deep brown-black with a large and clingy tan head. The aroma is a mocha latte. The taste is like an iced mocha; you get the coffee flavors, chocolate, cream and some caramel. The palate is silky smooth like drinking milk or cream. There is little to no boozy flavor less a warm burn on the back and side of the tongue. The finish is chocolate caramel. This is a new favorite, for sure.

Black body with a tall dark tan head. Some spotty lacing. Aroma is chocolates and coffee with a light cocoa puffs. Flavor is chocolate with oats and subtle coffee. For once a brewer was able to make a beer either chocolate added and not have that gross oily component. Medium roast. Medium body that has no hint of 9%.

Bottle. Pours a black color with tan head. Black coffee, slight chocolate and malty sweet aroma. Interesting black coffee flavor. You don’t get the 9% alcohol.

On tap at Sister. Rather thick and strong in flavor. The chocolate is quite strong and fake, but not in a bad way actually. It’s like a good quality chocolate syrup. Some dick who seemed to be rolling spilled 2/3 my glass.

On tap- Flying Saucer. Black pour with mild aroma and smooth yet full textured mouthfeel. Chocolate present but restrained, not cloying. Warm and satisfying.

22 ounce bottle from Total Wine, chocolate is very light, coffee is pronounced, thin disappearing head.

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Black in color with a tan head. Huge coffee aroma, coffee grounds, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. A little bit of toffee and caramel sweetness, earthy hops, and cocoa powder. Strong coffee flavor to the beer, though a bit more coffee grounds character than expected. Mild bitterness, dark chocolate, roasted malt, and a mild toffee sweetness.
