My 100th review!
Poured from 16.9 oz bottle into snifter glass.
Pours a jet black color with a thin mocha colored head. Appears to have low carbonation as I poured vigorously and did not get much head on the beer.
Not as much coffee aroma as I would have expected. Getting a fair amount of oats and some chocolate roasted grains. Not very complex, straightforward and simple.
Taste is very similar to aroma. Starts out very creamy with a moderate chocolate and coffee taste. Coffee taste comes through a little stronger on the finish and aftertaste, but not as prevalent as I would have thought. Really like that there isn't a bitter chocolate flavor like in so many other imperial stouts. Really smooth and this beer transitions very well from start to finish.
Creamy mouthfeel, with full body and low carbonation. Pretty drinkable for 11%. Very sticky and viscous.
After the first few sips, this beer really grew on me. It's nothing really extreme like I expected. Loved the creamy oats and the subtle coffee (as compared to other coffee stouts such as FBS) and moderate chocolate. Reminded me of a chocolate mocha milkshake.
