Poured from bottle into pint glass.
Appearance-Pours a dark slick near-black brown with a coffee-tan colored head, thick chunks of lace are left along the sides as the head recedes.
Smell-Freshly ground coffee beans, this beer smells like coffee plain and simple mingling with some chocolate almost like an alcoholic mocha latte, me likey.
Taste-HOLY....wow, just, just wow. Darkly roasted coffee of an espresso-like intensity followed by rich bittersweet chocolate; it's just like the nose only MORE. It's delectable.
Mouthfeel-It's definitely not the fullest imperial stout I've had in terms of mouthfeel but that raw, acidic-coffee palette-cleaning quality really gives a nice crispness to the tongue while you drink.
Drinkability-Extremely drinkable, I wish I had another bottle on hand; next time I get it I'll be sure to grab two.
Notes-I am both a coffee lover and a chocolate lover, I'm one of those people who wakes up every morning looking forward to that mocha latte to give me that cocoa and coffee fix. This beer is basically that in alcohol form and crafted brilliantly, if you're at all like me in your love for things chocolaty and coffee-like you should definitely pick this one up.
