Poured into a tulip glass. Pours very opaque black with a thin tan head. Some lacing is left behind on the glass as the head retreats. The aroma of coffee hit the nose even as the beer was being poured. There's some dark roasty malt in the nose that really blends well with the coffee. There's just a touch of chocolate in the nose. There's some nice dark coffee in the flavor with some good dark roasted barley malt in the flavor. The coffee aftertaste lingers in the mouth. There's a touch of chocolate there as well, which is something I found in the nose. I don't even taste the 9.5% ABV. The body is medium to full with moderate carbonation. The drinkability is high for an imperial stout. This is an excellent beer.

The Craft Beer Outlet, just sitting there. A beer this hard to find just sitting there. Fourth frig last row down on the very bottom shelf.
Couldn't figure out the bottle date so i think it's at about mid life.
Screw on top!
A lousious black and a tall, thick and creamy head. It's airy and fades leaving great lacing. I like that.
In the aroma one smells a toatal onslaught of roasted coffee. It's bold and powerful and quite intense. I can also smell chocolate and cream and sutle nuiances of roasted malts and barley.
Yeah, this on leans way to the coffee.
I wonder how much caffine is in here because this is a coffee bomber all the way.
So much coffee flavor but the beer is out of balance. I like balance. Balance in beer is good.
Towards the end I can taste some roasted malts, a bit ashen and gritty, but ther there.
On the palette it coats my tongue and is somewhat prickly. In the aftertaste it is bitter and sports a burnt malt taste.
A strong and intense beer which is also alittle sweet.
I'm glad i found this.It's hard to find. I don't like the unbalanced of the beer. The flavor is good and definitely in the top 5.
