4.35/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pitch black, lots of tiny, and I mean tiny, bubbles seen rising along the sides of the glass. 2 finger frothy tan head.

S - Entirely coffee. Smells like freshly ground beans.

T - Coffee stays the dominant flavor, more as fresh brewed coffee rather than the beans now. A bit of alcohol bite. Backbone is dark roasted malts, no chocolate to speak of which is usually in just about every stout I have tried, especially coffee stouts.

M - Heavy body with heavy carbonation which lightens it up a bit. Almost has a grainy feel to it because of the coffee and roasted malt flavors. There's not too much sweetness in this beer, it's all bitter malts. Aftertaste is slightly dry and bitter with a long-lingering taste of coffee with that gritty feeling you get throughout the entire taste.

O - Delicious, very well balanced coffee stout, also being able to balance it without adding sweetness to the taste was impressive.

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

P: 12 fl. oz. bottle in to a fluted glass

A: SRM is black/dark brown. Head is tan, 1 in, dissipates to top of beer. Medium/light carbonation. Medium lacing.

S: HUGE deep roasted coffee notes and malt with chocolate and slight carmel untertones.

T: COFFEE. Absolutely huge coffee notes. Slightly bittered chocolate and deep roast malt, light nuances of carmel. Alcohol is noticable, but does not detract from the beer. Aftertaste is coffee.

M: Viscous and thick. Full/heavy body. Coffee, roast malt, and chocolate notes blend with medium carbonation to create a mf that is heavy yet pleasing.

O: Phenominal beer. One of the biggest and best coffee beers I have ever had. The use of ingredients definitely showcased the coffee, but everything else was very well incorporated, making a fantastic end product.

4.47/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A= dark chestnut, nice creamy tan head with great retention and lacing in circular layers.

S= nutty (maybe like walnut?), dark roasted malts, dry chocolate and strong coffee, nice hops florals notes but not west-coast style. Vague hints of brandy at times. Not an overpowering strong nose but very very nice. Maybe vague hints of dark fruits.

T= dry dark chocolate and coffee, roasted dark malts, hints of nutty-ness, a touch of caramel.

M= dry, then slightly creamy after it settles for a while. A slight touch of astringency.

O= a top-shelf beer in its class or any class.

4.41/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

11.5oz bottle (code 0-5) poured into a snifter. Pours a jet black w/ a rich dense mocha head.

Aroma is bitter dark chocolate, strong coffee, and liquor-laced truffles. Sweet dark roasted malt holds everything together.

Taste is smooth, decadent dark chocolate, bitter espresso, and swirling hints of vanilla.

Mouthfeel is dry and smooth, luxurious.

Overall this is a great imperial stout. Just tasty, complex, delicious, and very drinkable.
