HUGE thanks to cmmcdonn for trading this to me. Thanks Chad!
A: Pours an extremely dark brown/black with a thin coating of creamy tan head. Some spotty lacing, but with spots so small it almost looks like it's ice coating the glass.
S: Bitter and sweet in all different ways. The kopi luwak coffee here is the exception- sweet and delicious; I've never had the coffee on its own, but it's obvious this is top notch. Besides that, tons of dark chocolate and roasted/charred malts are present. Some dark, plummy fruits add light accents and balance; amazing smell all around. A warning: make sure to fully enjoy the smell before your palate gets wrecked by the taste!
T: First, we'll start with the finish: this is the best finish of a beer I've ever experienced. A perfect balance of sweet coffee and bittersweet chocolate combines to present one of the best tastes I've ever tasted, in beer, other drink, or any other food (including dessert). Roasted malts compliment this wonderful balance exceptionally- providing a light balance of flavor that leaves me wondering if there's anything I'm possibly missing in this beer/if there's anything else that could possibly be fit in. Lingering fruity flavors add just a bit but never dominate. Before the insane finish, my taste buds are met by a similar blend of chocolate and coffee, in perfect proportion to one another. Wow, I cannot recommend this beer enough based off of taste.
M: I cannot get over the finish of this beer; it leaves my mouth, and I can barely tell that it ever touched my throat. The pleasant finish of a sweet cafe mocha (or even chocolate milk) is outstanding- if some medical procedure was invented to put the taste of this beer in my mouth at all times, I would be first in line to sign up for it. A light carbonation is also present, just enough to bump up the creaminess a bit.
D: Sure it's a big stout, but you might never know that from drinking it. So milky and smooth, I could sip on this all night; I'm sad my glass is over. The price tag on this beer might be hefty, but it is SURELY worth it- splurge for a special occasion, or just to make an ordinary night interesting.

My first beer drank using the weasel shit coffee. I'm not completely down with the idea of it, but I thought I'd give it a try anyway, thanks to the Old Toad crew at the Ithaca Luminous release.
Pours a dark black, not much foam or head, and a little bit of lacing.
Smells include coffee, chocolate, and vanilla.
The taste is pretty similar. There are some dark fruit flavors that are nice, and not present in the Beer Geek Breakfast. The coffee flavor is nice, but I don't know how much the "specialty coffee" adds to it any more than regular coffee.
Medium bodied, could be thicker for an imperial. Creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation.
A decent imperial coffee stout, though I have had better.
