A - Pours like oil, deep deep brown.. as near black as I've seen. Nice rich chocolate color head! OK lacing fair retention.

S - Lots of bitterness, obvious roasty notes but some of that bitterness seems to be a product of the pine like hops. Coffee and cocoa note, a little alcohol detectable. Really really great

T - Lots of roasty bitter malts & coffee (w some chocolate) into a smooth hop bite. Almost buttery quality to it too. A little alcohol at the finish

M - Super smooth, full bodied. Little carbonation

O - Delcious! Very bitter but very smooth. The flavors dont seem like much as I type them but the synergy within this brew is amazing

Bottle split between two snifters - special thanks to J.R. for sharing this one. Black in color with a thin dark beige head, not much lacing. Smells of coffee, dark choclate, some roasted malts too. No noticeable stench of civet poop, which was not expected but is a relief nonetheless.

Taste is spectaculous, probably the smoothest coffee stout I have ever tasted. Lots of chocolate notes, but the coffee notes are roasty and rich (as opposed to the roasty and bitter notes you might find in an FBS, for example). The high-end coffee and some Mikkeller magic make this a high-end beer fo sho. Again, no traces of civet poop in the taste or mouthfeel, so my nightmares of civets pooping coffee beans have been overcome. Now if only I could overcome my fear of opening flat Lost Abbey bottles...

Overall a great beer with a unique and tasty profile. I recommend.

A- Poured into a snifter... this ones been in the cellar for a little while and pours a little clumpy towards the bottom of the bottle. A light brown colored fizz tops black oil like beer before disappearing

S- Beer has a very rich malty aroma with some coffee, licorice, booze, and bitterness

T- Taste very much goes along with the aroma. Starts malty with a noticeable bitterness accompanying. Coffee comes through about mid swig but becomes most defined in the finish

M- Very thick and chewy with little carbonation

O- Wasn't overly impressed with this one though I've had it before on draft and thought more highly of it then. Not sure if the aging in the cellar mellowed this one too much

A: Pours a deep opaque brown, near black, with a thick blanket of tan head. Just a bit retains around the edge of the glass and in hazy clumps on the surface, but it's enough to leave spots of lacing.

S: Rich and deep. There's a coffee note, but it's light and earthy and somehow unusual, but good. There's also a bit of a boozy warmth and bite. The overall effect is definitely more than the sum of its parts though; everything really comes together perfectly.

T: Dense roasted malt and coffee leading into a smooth but bitter finish. Each element is well executed, though there's nothing unusual going on, but again the composition is what makes it.

M: Full body, relatively light carbonation. There's a light but noticeable astringency around the middle of the tongue.

Overall, it's great. Very complex, and seems excellently put together. Rather than a mix of a large number of things to provide depth and complexity, it's a small number of high quality elements in just the right quantities.

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.
