4.5/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle dated November 2007.

Pours opaque black with a one-plus inch head of dense, brown froth. Very pillowy and soft in appearance.
Aromatics are loaded with strong coffee, bitter chocolate, and roasted malts.
Very roasty and chocolatey with plenty of espresso notes.
The mouthfeel is smooth and thick. Chewy with gription aplenty. Drying but still plenty of residual tackiness.
The pallet is assertively packed with heavily roasted coffee oils, dark chocolate, and char.
All the flavors are layered perfectly, even for a beer so top-heavy with coffee.
Hopping is minimal, and the biiterness seems to come from the coffee.
Finishes slightly warming, with lingering coffee and chocolate, and a hint of vanilla.

I think the key to this beer is the an extremely high grade of coffee beans, and the balancing thats achieved with them.

I would love to try this one after spending some time in a bourbon barrel.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.
