22oz bottle. Very dark brown w/a moderate brown head. Lightly charred coffee beans, bitter espresso, dried oatmeal and dark malt taste. Could’ve used more body and sweetness. Added coconut water and Stevia - really good then! ICEatALAMO (1358) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle. The pour is black and looks a little thin. The aroma is mostly coffee, not much malt. the taste slightly thin for an imperial. Coffee is strong, a little bitter. Good imperial coffee stout for sure.

On tap: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, lighter caramel, roast, coffee, and a touch of anise. It’s a dark brown with no transparency and a small tan head that fades to a minimal film outlined by a very fine ring. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate, light molasses, and caramel. The finish has moderate roasted espresso, light anise/black licorice, a hint of smoke, and dark fruits. It’s full bodied with mild carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel.

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 11/28/2014. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense dark tan head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of huge dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, toast, toffee, light molasses, light smoke/char, light vanilla, and roasted earthiness. Outstanding aromas with great balance and complexity of big coffee and dark/roasted malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, toast, toffee, light molasses, light smoke/char, light vanilla, and roasted earthiness. Good amount of dark roasted coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, toast, toffee, light molasses/vanilla and roast/char earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of big coffee and dark/roasted malt flavors; with a good roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with very smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome imperial coffee stout. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of big coffee and dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering. umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle. Black pour with a small tan head that fades to a thin ring. Aroma is fresh light roast coffee with some cocoa, licorice and light alcohol. Tastes coffee forward as expected. Just hints of burnt caramel and cocoa mix with light roast coffee. Medium body. Pretty good beer but I was hoping for more. The regular CEO has more coffee if remember correctly. But I do like that this is lower carbonated and has more body. ebone1988 (2294) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, chocolate. Appearance is dark brown, light brown head. Taste is roasted malt, a touch light, just really roasty with maybe a touch of cocoa. Mouthfeel is nice, soft carbonation, but a touch light. Overall...much better than the other three variations. koleminer20 (4261) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2015
22 oz bottle from Tippins. Thanks Dom! The pour is a light black with a thin darker khaki head (darker than the other variants). There isn't much of a lace here, so that's mildly promising. The aroma is pretty coffee forward with a nice roastiness here. There is a good malt and a nice licorice that pokes through on the end. The flavor is more dark licorice and heavy malts than I was expecting. The coffee is an after thought, but the strength of the imperial nature makes this pretty damn good. The mouth feel is a little thinner, but the carbonation helps it hang around nicely. The aftertaste is lingeringly dry and roasty with a good licorice just hanging there. This is by far the best of the bunch!

Draft at right brain. Deep black with a tan head. Dark malt and roasty aromas. Maybe slightly more espresso flavor than the regular version and slightly thicker.
