Black as night; brown foamy 1/4 inch head; sticky lacing; full of coffee aromas on the nose, dark chocolate too; lots of roasted malt present; pleasantly hopped at 60IBUs; tastes like sweet cold coffee with the perfect amount of alcohol; slightly oatmeal-y; the sticky continues as the black gold drags from my mustache; slightly bitter on the back end just like you'd expect from a coffee stout; enjoyed on International Stout Day...jackpot!

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

Appearance - Everything an imperial stout should be: pitch black, 1 finger tan head (which dissipates very fast, and opaque. Some alcohol lacing, but not a lot.

Aroma - Chocolate and coffee up front. Pretty much dominates the beer. Roasted malts make their presence known, but dark chocolate and coffee take over. there is almost a slight vanilla aroma as well

Taste - coffee nips this one in the bud. starts off with the coffee flavor and quickly turns into dark chocolate; just like the aroma. roasted malts lend a hand in the overall balance of the beer, which has the slightest of hops present. No alcohol present at all

Mouthfeel - right on point. creamy as can be, little carbonation, heavy on he palate. really completes the beer. the oats call for a creamy imperial stout

Overall - solid imperial stout. for being a chocolate, coffee, oatmeal beer, this really brings all of those to the table. the oats with the creaminess, the coffee up front, and he dark chocolate that rounds out the beer. such a solid beer and cant be beat for a winter seasonal

Serving type: on-tap
