Appearance: Price tag says $17.49 from Wine Warehouse. Poured from a 22 oz bomber in to a 25 oz crystal sniffer glass. The beer is intensely black in color and looks like a helping of thick soy sauce. Yum. The first thing I really notice is the big, fluffy, brown head. It is creamy and thick and dark. It looks like it has a skin on top as the head settles and just sits there like a rock. The head leaves a thick, grainy lacing on the side of the glass. The head is damn near frightening. It is menacing and it would probably kick your ass if you look at it cross-eyed. Good thing I didn't.
Smell: The nose is strong coffee of espresso-like potency. There is a light scent of dark chocolate too.
Taste: Sweet and creamy with lots of coffee flavor. There is brown sugar, dark chocolate and a dry roastiness that borders on burnt. Light hop bitterness sits near the end with some fruitiness that resembles black cherries.
Mouthfeel: Dry and sandy but still smooth and thick. Very full bodied creamy.
Drinkability: This is an all around great beer. Of course, if you like coffee, this is indeed your beer. On the flip side if you hate the taste of coffee, stay away. This beer combines dark chocolate and espresso flavors wonderfully. Very tasty.

Jet black in color with a faint wisp of khaki colored head surrounding the edge of the glass. Intense aroma of coffee is prominent with roasted barley taking a back seat. The flavor is an assault of dark coffee and dark roasted barley. This is foremost a coffee beer and secondarily it is an imperial stout. This flavor is truly amazing. The mouth is thick and chewy.
