Pours a thick, oily black with a thin, dark brown head. Aroma of rich coffee, oatmeal cookies, chocolate, and a hint of smoke. Wonderfully rich and complex flavor has more of the aromas, plus toffee, dark roasts, and citrus and floral hops. Its not as heavy as I was expecting from the pour - medium bodied with a great mouth feel and very smooth going down. Overall this is a very tasty imperial. Great for any beer lover who is also a coffee drinker.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2006
Black with blood-red highlights. Roasty, mild coffee-ish nose. Silky-soft texture. Very rich and intense dark roast left behind nice elements of dark chocolate and a pinch of burntness/smoke and a slight hint of black licorice. Coffee flavors were there, but it was less evident than I expected. Balanced hop bitterness (mostly grassy). Nice impy.

Bottle from TannerTavernboys. Black as night. Light brown head forms and fades quickly leaving hardly any lacing. Aroma is pleasant, Roasted malt, coffee, oatmeal and a dose of smoke for some reason. Full bodied and viscous with a light carbonation level. Coffee jolt, oatmeal smoothness. Tasty.

(03.26.06) Stout/porter sampling with Scott, Tony and Walt at DiCarlos, Mundelein, IL. 12 oz brown bottle as gift from Thaichile. Limited release. 8.1% ABV. 2006 Monster beer tour. Poured black with small tan head. Soft carbonation. Coffee aroma in the nose. Medium bodied stout that starts with oatmeal/vegetal (snow peas?) flavors. Some acidity detected. Finishes with light bitterness and roasted malt. No coffee essence detected except in the nose. Does not adhere to the style of an imperial stout. Bad bottle? A disappointing beer. Thanks Thaichile for the bottle.

I love this beer. Ever since we got this on tap I drink nothing else. The first impression of this beer left me wondering if it is something I would want to drink much of, but this sweet coffee, chocolate stout grows on you quickly. Full coffee aroma, pours black with little head. Mouthfeel is nice and smooth, not too thick, and not even syrupy which is odd b/c if you ever have to clean up a spill of this stuff it quickly turns into a sticky syrupy mess. Its never overpowering and although it is a sipping beer youll want glass after glass of this delicious creation. If you like stouts and you like coffee - youll love this beer. Wow! Im going to miss this one until next winter.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2006
Quickly settling dark tan head crowns an opaque black pour. Big coffee aroma that is unmistakable, and supported by notes of bitter chocolate. Mouthfeel was medium/full, but a little thinner than I had expected. Coffee, chocolate, and an underlying dark molasses sweetness come through in the flavor, with balance provided by spicy and herbal hops. Although it starts sweet, it finishes dry and bitter. Seems to lack some of the complexity of the best Impys, but enjoyable nonetheless.

thanks to jimbowood...this one pours very dark (I was outside in the dark though) and has very little head. Throughout the beer the aroma was muted coffee and malt...a little more chocolate/sweet coffee show through at room temp. Flavor was a bunch of roasted malt and lots of coffee...like the the aroma...but there was some caramel as well. The coffee wasnt over bearing though (i dont like coffee too much). Mouthfeel wasnt anything special...kind of light and oily. This was pretty good...but it wasnt too imperial in my book.

A grand name for a grand beer! Sampled on tap at Barleys Taproom. A nearly black body supports the rich caramel-colored head (didnt last long, though). The aroma boasted of robust roasted malts and a little mocha. Body was full, rich, and round without being too thick. The flavor had more of a mocha tune than coffee, with none of the alcohol burn I was expecting from an imperial stout.
