look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Served in a snifter glass.

Appearance: Opaque dark and thick pour looking like used motor oil. Head is thick in the beginning but settles quick with an initial rise of 2/3".

Smell: What an aroma, you feel the coffee hit you and you just want to inhale the beast.

Taste: Rich espresso, not too bitter...has a lot of molasses and brown sugar notes but not too sweet. The taste comes off just right.

Mouth: Very sticky, and smooth...carbonation is medium at best coming off light as it sits in the glass which pisses me off a bit but still good.

Overall: Easily one of the best imperial stouts I've had probably top ten. It's definitely the smoother of its kind making it very easy for the novice beer drinkers and true connoisseurs to love. Take your time and enjoy...Salud!

Thanks to mcallister for sharing the bottle.
Pours absolute black with chunks of sediment that can barely be seen. Chunky off white head that sticks a bit.
Smells of tons of coffee with a heavy dose of cream. Amazing. Some slight sweet chocolate as well.
Smooth as a well roasted coffee with a ton of cream. One of the creamiest beers I've ever tasted. Just a hint of chocolate to blend well with the coffee. Excptional mouthfeel, slick, dense, creamy and rich. Sets a very high standard.

appearance: yea, i'm biased to black beauties and this is one. Impressive head for a nearly 11% with nice lacing.
smell: Smells a lot like FBS, which means...great. Coffee and a dry richness.
taste: More of the same. Love me some FBS and this may have a little something extra.
drinkability: Seems if not a Holy War at least a firm disagreement amongst BA'ers over session vs big beers. In any case the skill in making a smooth big beer is becoming a wonderfully ubiquitous thing.

So I've been sitting on this one for a special occasion. This being my 300th review I figured I'd bust the cap on it tonight.

A: 1 word....beautiful! Black as night with a gorgeous reddish coffee iced cream colored head of about 3 fingers.

S: Sweet dark chocolate with lighter coffee notes then expected. A sort of dark damp cave aroma with a touch of vanilla in the background.

T: pretty much the same as the nose but with a bit stronger coffee and more sweet dark chocolates. Also dome light smokiness almost peat like.

M: Super smooth. Medium bodied rich and creamy and oh so smooth.

Overall: This one meets expectations and then some. Althoughto expensive to drink often. I would definitely drink this as over again. One of the better coffee stouts I've had.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a very dark and opaque brown with two fingers of milk chocolate brown colored creamy head. Head is mostly small bubbles that cascaded down on the pour as expected from an oatmeal stout, with a few large bubbles mixed in, with great retention before it slowly dissipates to a half a finger, leaving thick lacing trails on the glass. Really nice looking beer.

Nose is astringent roasted coffee, very sweet milk chocolate, fudge, molasses, and a bit of booziness.

Coffee roast is a bit nicer on the tongue, fruity and less astringent from being burnt. Nice light roasted bitterness upfront, sweet milk chocolate dominating mid tongue. Lots of lingering roasted bitterness, fruity coffee and milk chocolate on the finish. Not much booziness on the taste, but still a sipper with how bold the flavors are.

Full body, viscous with some light carbonation, really coats your tongue and mouth to contribute to the long finish. The coffee does really shine on this beer, rich, fruity and good.

Thanks to Chris @ Slowbeer

Pours a dark black with a really dark brown head. Good lacing.

Smell is an obscene amount of decadent chocolate fudge. There's also brown sugar, soy sauce, umami, more chocolate and rye. Amazing.

Taste is lots more earthy chocolate, more complex earthy/rye notes. The sweetness which I initially get on the palate gets swamped by a wave of bitterness. There's some great caramelised alcohol to finish and of course roast is a ubiquitous but subtle presence.

Mouthfeel is good with good thickness and viscosity.

Overall a fantastic beer. Worth the hype and the money. Very keen to try the -BA versions.
