4.1/5 rDev -6.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
11.5oz bottle from Halftime.com. I can't decipher the notched bottling info (4 and 2?). Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.
Pours black with a bare quarter finger of pale tan head. Small streaks of lace.
Aromas of expresso mocha latte, caramel and a little cocoa.
Taste is, as expected, a coffee bomb. Strong doses of bitter medium roast coffee with charred malt, dark cocoa, burnt caramel, molasses and a little vanilla. The booze pops up in the finish but is hidden well behind a wall of coffee.
Medium full creamy body with moderate carbonation. Bitter coffee plants it's self on the tongue for a long lating aftertaste.
One of the best available imperial coffee stouts. Great balance of coffee flavors. Too bad this one isn't sold in GA or I'd get this on a regular basis while waiting for Wake n Bake's winter release.

3.89/5 rDev -11.6%

A - Black as night, no head, at least by the time it was brought to me (the bar was packed).
S - Like somebody else said, muted aroma. Nonexistent once you taste it.
T - The best part. Coffee and chocolate. I mean, there's not much else to say. Not that it isn't complex--it is--but everything else is just accenting the two.
M - Silky smooth with light carbonation.
O - I'm glad to have tried it but also glad my friend was the one paying the $9 for it. Not really my favorite or something I'd seek out again but I definitely enjoyed this one!

A-pours almost black with just a thin layer of tan head that quickly disappears and just leaves a bit of lace around the top
S-roasted malt, black coffee, molasses, dark chocolate, and a little bit of smoke
T-getting lots of big roasted malt and dark coffee, light dark chocolate and molasses. Tastes exactly like a coffee stout should.
M-full body, very smooth, dry roasted, good carbonation, excellent mouthfeel
Overall this is a really great imperial stout. Tons of coffee flavors coming out, really roasty
