Finally reviewing this brew. She pours a nice shade of black with a light mocha head. Looks phenomenal. Let's whiff this beaut. Huge hits of coffee even the acidity of coffee. Nice sweet cocoa/espresso dense roasted malts. Smells intense. Taste test time! This thing is coffee/espresso and roasted malts with just a touch of residual sugars to keep it going. There is also a hint of acidity and bitterness but non offensive. Also hints of chocolate cookie crumble. The feel of the brew is full bodied and yet not sticky. Carbonation is on point and helps the Malts/Coffee to pop on the palate.
Overall: This brew is worth the hype. It's balanced and a touch on the complex side. If you like Imperial Stouts and Coffee Stouts this brew is for you! Hands down one of the top tier Imperial Coffee Stouts on the market. This brew is Recommended!

Pours a midnight black with a beautiful two finger mocha head. It smells like freshly brewed espresso, bakers chocolate, and darkly roasted grains. There is also a very big freshly ground espresso bean note, like the smell when you open up your coffee grinder and that dusty, intense coffee aroma flows in to your nostrils. The taste follows the nose, with intense, oily black espresso at the front. There is a light amount of sweetness to make sure the bitter coffee doesn't overwhelm. The beer is nicely carbonated and body is not quite full... The mouth feel is perfect for the delivery of the flavors. The astringency is spot on. This is a world class beer; try as hard as you can to get a taste. It's by far the best imperial coffee stout I've tasted.

BA dark, dark beer with a fairly thin khaki colored head. The aroma has the smell of subtle coffee, chocolate, and deep roasted malt. The subtle coffee smell in the aroma is the same in the taste. More expresso, almost cappuccino like. Very nice. Not in your face like a Founders Breakfast Stout. Also tastes like the filling of a chocolate cream pie. Has some faint tobacco in there too. It is very creamy smooth. A little surprising for the style. Drank almost like a cream stout. Texture was thick, but reminded me of a Black Note. It was a lot like Ten Fidy for me in regard to temperature. I didn't care for it as much as it warmed to room temp. I think the sweet spot is in the 50-60 range. Excellent, must try beer.
