Bottle from Grocery Outlet. Slick, almost black in color. Roasty coffee nose. A little milk sugar as well. Roasty up front with some sugary sweetness. Fairly smooth with coffee and a bit of milky sweetness dominating. Burnt roasted coffee finish. Alcohol is very well hidden.

Full coffee chocolate aroma. Black with brown expression like head. Taste is chocolate sweetness followed by coffee bitterness which lingers. Alcohol warmth percolates through but not intrusive. A very nice stout. Served on tap in Gaslamp quarter Mexican in San Diego

December 10th, 2014 - Available at the closest grocery store, this Zumbar Chocolate Coffee Imperial Stout was very much an impulse purchase. I caught a glimpse of it while wheeling too much ice cream down the aisle to the register, sensing it would fit in the same vein of chocolatey goodness. The body is expectedly dark, but the head is somewhat surprisingly dark as well, taking on a deep, rich espresso foam color of brown, like a stirred up soy sauce. The aroma is rich with botanical notes and coffee, with a layer of dark chocolate presenting some sweetness to the olfactory. The flavor is even better, delivering smooth chocolate notes like a mousse or ganache, blending the sweetness of the chocolate against a dark bitterness. A long chocolate aftertaste makes for a final treat at the end of each mouthful, providing a little boozy burn to settle the taste buds.

Pour is a black with a large tan head. Aroma is a nice bitter bakers chcocolate with some roast malt. Flavor is all equal parts coffee and chocolate with a nice roast and bitterness. This is a extremely flavorful stout, maybe a bit too bitter but this has plenty of chocolate and coffee.
