12 oz bottle poured into a Vault Brewing snifter.
Pours a dark brown body with a thin tan head of half a finger thickness which dissipates quickly with minimal lacing.
Smells of roasted whole coffee beans, burnt toast, vanilla, cacao, and toffee.
Taste is heavy on coffee and roasted malts. Surprisingly bitter, both from hops and coffee. Not as much on the chocolate or vanilla taste as the smell might suggest.
Feel is medium bodied, moderately carbonated, dry finish. I prefer my imperial stouts thicker, coating the tongue more than this.
Overall a nice coffee stout which I enjoyed but not a top-ten for the category by any means, and I'm surprised by the level of hype this receives.

11.5oz bottle poured into a snifter. 6 and 1 notched on the label of this twist off bottle.
A: Pours a very dark brown appearing pitch black in the glass. A mild khaki tan head sits on top, dissipating in a couple minutes.
S: Initially there is a nice dose of coffee that blends very well with a roasted malt quality. Dark fruit qualities come out more as it warms along with a touch of smokiness.
T: A beer with flavor that builds on you. At first I get a slightly bitter coffee, then a blend of dark fruit comes through. The aftertaste lingers with a great roastiness for a solid 2 minutes after each sip.
M: Very smooth beer. Creamy mouthfeel that slides like velvet over your tongue. Doesn't even seem like an alcoholic beverage. Remarkable.
Overall I am stunned with the complexity yet harmony of this beer. Coffee is just enough to add without overwhelming, hops compliment the coffee and the roastiness just works period.
