Pours think and black, with a small brown head that dissipates quickly leaving some nice lacing. Aroma filled with roasted coffee beans, oatmeal, bitter chocolate. Great roasted malt aroma. Perfection for the style. Taste follows the nice precisely, bitter coffee and chocolate and a nice roastedness. A touch of hop bitterness keeps the malt nicely in check. Very chewy, sticky mouthfeel, with a dry finish. A notch below full-bodied for an imperial stout. An insatiable desire to luck your lips after each sip to pickup the residual flavors. Alcohol is perfectly positioned, giving you a warmth and umph, but not affecting the taste. To be a touch critical, i'd say a slight bump up in alcohol wouldnt hurt.
There has been some discussion that there should be a category for "Coffee Stouts" rather than lumping these in with Imperial Stouts. I tend to agree. And this is the best I've had.
