Jamesthebrit (421) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2013
A: Pours thick and black. Little head. Little lacing. S: Huge coffee note. Acidity seems to cut through in the smell. Seems like.... a breakfast coffee? You know, medium body a bit of acidity. I prefer french roast.... T: Pretty solid on the taste. Pretty much just like the smell. Coffee... a bit of acidity but not too much. Im scared to see what happens as the beer warms though. Finish is a little rough. Alcohol starts to cut though as the temp rises. P: Pretty smooth on the palate. Carbonation isnt terrible aggressive. Alright, lets be honest here... when I see coffee oatmeal imperial stout Im thinking of that Founders Breaky..... So this had some tough competition. Plus, having moved from GR down south I figured Id have a little battle do see if Im still a yankee or if Ive moved on. The truth is... this beer just isnt even close. It brings a lot of good aspects but none are really prefect. Like everything is good but nothing is great. Worth grabbing: yes. Better than others... sadly no.

Can. For me this is a knockout. Worthy of the 9.4%, aromas reminded me of walking into the local roaster. Nice, frothy, persistent head when poured into a shallow, wide mouthed belgian glass. Really thick and really rich, smooth chocolate with a roast coffee bite. Almost ice creamy in the finish. Thanks, Max.

Very delicious lots of coffee and chocolate dominate this one very sweet with a touch of bitterness pours pitch black thick with a light carbonation head rich and creamy and just a hint of oatmeal flavor to it would not have guessed it was 9.4% alcohol until I was done with my glass and could feel it.

12oz can. 2016 vintage. Appearance: Jet black, opaque, with a low lying khaki brown head. Aroma: Wow. Really strong rich roasted coffee dominates. A touch of dark chocolate is there, but the coffee roastiness is the main factor here. Taste: Starts with a rich dark chocolate, slowly turning over to a deep, rich coffee and a moderately high bitterness. Coffee character on the backside overrides the other flavors. Mouthfeel: Relatively heavy bodied with some creaminess from the oatmeal, and a light carbonation. Finish: Some bitterness lingers, but mostly a dark chocolate roasted malt character. Overall: One of the more coffee forward takes on the style, with an aroma that sets itself apart. This beer has some nice dark chocolate undertones, but really shines for the coffee character. Oatmeal adds some viscosity to the mouthfeel, but a bit of a boost in that side would be welcomed.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a pitch black color with a thick brown head. The aroma is roasted malt. The taste is malt and coffee.

libertine (433) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2016
Pours black with a minimal brown head. The coffee is upfront in the aroma. Earthy with notes of vanilla light smoke. The coffee also dominates the flavor with earthy notes and vanilla. Body is a bit thin for a stout. Lasting dry finish. Good but a bit overhyped.

VRH (63) - Georgia, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Aroma is rich with chocolate, followed by a full bodied & robust coffee flavour on the palate layered across a crisp oatmeal stout foundation. Slight hints of vanilla are present along the edges of a molasses cookie richness. The finish is very satisfying, bringing grassy notes forward as the coffee complexity lingers. From the tap at Beverage World - Delicious!
