This is a really well done Coffee Imperial Stout. There is an acrid, heavily roasted note that is reminiscent of a fresh pot being made in a Mr Coffee machine. Maybe not as bold and refined as others in its’ field, this still holds up exceptionally well. Clocks in at over 10% but goes down almost too well, with a medium-full body. So not as syrupy or thick as you might imagine. Countbeer (6599) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2014

22 oz bomber. The pour is a dark dark brown with a thin tan collar of head and no lace. The area is pretty big on coffee. There is a great licorice on the nose backed up by a little booziness. The malts balance out well, and this is just a good smelling offering. The flavor is decent. There is a lot of chocolate malts up front, rolling through a good licorice and into a great coffee induced aftertaste. This is smooth and rich. The mouth feel is a little light, but the soft carbonation helps it come across a really creamy. I like how the booze is well hidden and you don't get the same level as in the nose. Well done, but could be a little thicker
