4.45/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle (bottled on 09/06/11) poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pitch black - letting no light through at all. Even on the pour you can see how black it is - maybe the slightest hint of very dark brown during the pour. Dark tan head (1/8") upon pouring, which lasted for about half the glass before becoming just a ring at the edge. Tiny islands of lace here and there. May be the blackest imperial stout I've ever had.

Smell: Dark roast coffee, piney hops, espresso beans, and maybe just a hint of bittersweet chocolate.

Taste: Dark roast coffee, wonderful malt sweetness to counter the bitter finish, but coffee coffee coffee is the theme of this beer. Like a iced sweetened coffee with a hint of cream, but with all of that rich coffee bitterness shouting out. If it wasn't for the malt and the fact that I poured this out of a beer bottle, I might be fooled on what this was. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel: Very thick, creamy, with the barest of carbonation. Oh man this stuff is smooth and good.

Overall / Drinkability: Well, maybe I should have this for breakfast some day with that very strong coffee flavor. Otherwise, a great after-dinner beer (went well with a few pieces of dark chocolate) but I would bet that this would be really good with diner food or a burger. Or...well - breakfast. Yes, I could see this beer going really well with waffles, pancakes, eggs & bacon, scones, you name it.
