Bottle shared by a friend. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have nice coffee, cocoa, dark chocolate, some roasted malt, sweet malts, I had the barrel aged version first and think they are similar since the barrel was mild, solid.

4.3
onceblind (11099) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2017
Black pour with a thin light khaki foamy head. Lovely deep dark malty and dark chocolaty syrup aroma with a spike of subtle coffee and roast and some kind of dark sugar. Rich flavor that’s as dark as the nose but also as chocolaty with some bittersweet dark chocolate and a little coffee roastiness throughout. Bold and slightly boozy warm but flavorful and rich.

3.7
DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2015
4oz on tap at the brewery. Fantastic roasty exotic and complex coffee aroma up front. Some hazelnut-like creme to it, and earthiness. Love it. Some dark chocolate. Earthy hop, mildly spicy. Bigger bitter taste, moderate sweet. Light sweet bite in the finish. Nice coffee heat in the finish. Black color, though not totally opaque. Ring of light brown head, leaves some bits of lace. Kind of bigger body, but not as thick or chewy as most imperial stouts. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation, mild slick texture, light dry in the finish. Solid coffee stout, but not perfect... Some room for improvement. Coffee carries it, very nice coffee flavor here.

3.8
solidfunk (9789) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 24, 2017
Coffe and roast like some decent beams spilled into the Starbucks vat. Black pour with decent head. Some caramel and bitterness in finish with booze. Tap at Churchkey.
