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.

On tap at Smoke and Barrel....Pours pitch black, smells like a mocha latte. Its got a ton of coffee flavor and even more chocolate. Would probably be good for dessert, but I never eat dessert. For me, its just a little sweet and sticky.

Bomber. Dark brown pour, with a small tan head. Sweet coffee, light roast, milk chocolate, somewhat old coffee taste. Decent, but it seems Im always disappointed when I buy a lips of faith beer.

Botte via SL... Lets start with the taste. Bitter, chocolate, coffee. Delicious! Nose is nice, cold coffee, bitter chocolate notes. Looks great... Black as wesley snipes. Small mocha colored head that fades quickly. Creamy smooth body, easy to drink for a 9+ percenter.... Overall... Good shite!

22 oz. bottle- Pours pitch black with a one finger tan head. Aroma is gourmet coffee, chocolate, it smells like creamy fresh brewed coffee with a touch of cocoa added, yummy. The taste is coffee of course, more bitter and dry than the aroma led on, cocoa, some hops. Body is full and creamy, carbonation is medium. I really liked this beer, coffee and chocolate are nothing new to the impy stout genre, but that is because it works, they blend wonderfully, really enjoyed it!

Pours black with a nice medium brown head and a lasting ring of foam. Aroma of coffee, milk duds, dark chocolate, and slight fruit; sweet and tangy on the nose all at once. Flavor of moderate roast, dry at first but then you get hit with the sweet chocolate and malt flavors as well as coffee. Finish is pretty strong with bitter coffee, earth, smoke, and vaguely milky aftertaste. Nearly heavy, slightly high carbonation, creamy body, not much alcohol presence. Good beer, nice to see NB make an imperial stout. Its not the heaviest out there as expected, but it is well made and demonstrates its ingredients well.

22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown black with a medium creamy tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet lactic chocolate and coffee roast with a slight amount of vegetables.

The flavor is sweet lactic chocolate and a lot of roasted malt and coffee and a bit of alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice coffee stout. Sweet with the lactic chocolate, but nice coffee and the roast balances it out. Not top tier, but great value.

Bomber. Near black pour with a foamy, light brown head. Roasted coffee and dark chocolate aroma. Mostly bitter tasting as the coffee and roasted malt overpowers most of the chocolate trying to peak through. Lingering semi-sweet, alcohol taste. Well carbonated with a surprisingly watery texture. Just a little more body and chocolate flavor could have made this a great one, but still worth a try.
