3.8/5  rDev -11%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours jet black with about a .5in mocha head that slowly recedes. Nice retention and lacing. Good looking beer.

Smell is somewhat subtle given the style. Notes of chocolate, wood and sweet malt in the nose. Pleasant enough if not overly assertive.

Taste is notes of vanilla, oak, and chocolate. Only the slightest hints of coffee. A slight tart kick in the finish, which, as the glass warms, seems to start transfering to the front of each sip.

Mouthfeel is solid for the style. Maybe a bit thin given the flavors involved, but I can't fault it too much.

Overall, this kind of fails as a coffee beer, but is generally sucessful as an imperial stout. If espresso wasn't in the name, I would never identify this as a coffee beer. I suppose that the coffee may have faded since the bottling 6 months ago, but i've not had similar problems with other coffee beers. A pleasant enough beer, but not worth seeking out at the price tag.
