A: This one, like it's chocolate brother, pours a seriously black color - no light gets through this one. A healthy pour produces a thick brown head that eventually makes it way down to a half finger that persists throughout the entire event and produces good amounts of lacing.
S: Coffee is right up front but I expected that given its name. Of the other typical stout aromas the toffee our weighs the chocolate. The oak is in there but it is well blended and doesn't overwhelm anything. As it approaches the more appropriate temperature there is a sweetness - maybe a slight dark fruitiness.
T: This is awesome and complex. The oak makes a little more of an appearance here but again it is well blended with the other flavors. Heck, everything is well blended in this one. The coffee is a little more noticeable but, again, the name dictates that. Malt and hops, chocolate and toffee... It's all good.
M: Creamy going down with a little warming sensation. It feels a little oily as it leaves a coating on my tongue. Heavy body and a little light on the carbonation - perfect for the style.
D: I found it really easy to down a full 750ml bottle. The folks at Great Divide seem to love to produce oak-aged imperial items and I love to drink them. This is very enjoyable. This is one to experience.
