11.5oz bottle into a snifter. notches between 4 and 5 on both # scales, but they only go up to 9 so im not sure what this means.

Pours a dark brown/black with a half inch beige head that lingers for a long while. One of the most impressive lacings ive ever seen on a stout, too. Smell is big on coffee and chocolate and charred malts. The taste is extremely smooth and hits you with a big chocolate flavor right off, followed by a good espresso kick and a nice bit of burned malt flavor. You get a lingering char feel in your mouth with this one too, it stays with you. Body is so creamy, the complete opposite of syrupy and is very impressive from a big stout. Hard to even call this full bodied, its more medium bodied which is very surprising for a stout like this. Not necessarily a sipper but why wouldnt you?

Overall not quite FBS tier but its close. A very impressive coffee infused imp stout and one that is super easy to drink. However, the price point is a bit high. Still, if this was available regularly around me i'd more than happily consume it regularly.

Poured into a glass goblet.

Pours a slick black with a fuzzy, tan-colored head. It smells like chocolate, big roasted malts, but hardly any coffee. The taste is similar. The roasted malts really take over the beer. Dark, bitter chocolate, burnt toast, strong bitterness, slight coffee vibes. As it warms, the coffee starts to come out more. There’s not a huge amount of depth but the flavors work very well here. Mouthfeel is decent, but not as good as it could be – there might be a little too much carbonation…it feels a little harsh with all the bitter roasted malts. This is still a very solid imperial stout.
