Poured into a Hoppin Frog snifter. Bottled January 2012.

A- oil, thick, shiny, beautiful small brown head with a whipped cream consistency

S- chocolate and coffee explosion, earthy wood too, feels like your nose is turning into a cappuccino machine

T- milk and dark chocolate overwhelms, but with a Willy Wonka's chocolate factory sense of awe, coffee is also present obviously, but is not as strong as bottles less than 6 months of age, the mellowed out coffee and chocolate flavor is superb, hop presence as well, really balances the sweet chocolate flavors, toast and a little vanilla too

M- thick and sticky, i was licking my lips so much my friends were becoming annoyed

O- If you like chocolate or coffee, then this is a must-have. Great imperial stout. The added hop characteristics really balance out this beer. I didn't think I would enjoy this beer as much as I did with a bottle date over a year ago, but I thought it was still great. Having it aged a bit was just as good as having it fresh, but for different reasons.

Jan 13 bottle

Pours jet black with a small mocha head that quickly fades to a ring of bubbles around the brim of the glass. Smells of straight espresso. Taste is huge coffee upfront...like a shot of italian espresso that becomes a bitter dark chocolate with a bit of sharp oak. Mouthfeel is on the full side with just the right amount of carbonation. Overall a very good variation of a already stellar beer.

A: Black with a big brown head. Retention is good and lacing is decent.

S:Bakers chocolate. Some prune and grape. Coffee note is a bit small compared to the chocolate.

T: Big sugary sweet cafe mocha upfront. A slightly bitter roasted malt and black coffee come in about halfway and linger on into the aftertaste.

M: Medium-full mouthfeel with low carbonation. Smooth and wet.

O: Good sweet coffee imp. stout that's well priced.

Wow - this is a quad-shot espresso forward Imperial Stout!! Starbucks should be worried as the price of this per ounce isn't that much different than my normal morning beverage.

Pours jet black like used motor oil with a lovely , velvety mocha head which looks creamy and retains well. Nose is all roast malts and espresso. Flavor is heavily dominated by the coffee and espresso but you pick up the oak smokiness and a little char from the malts. This is one of the better coffee stouts that I've had, but be warned that it is a little unidimensional and much less complex than a KBS or Bourbon County. I think the six shots of espresso kind of offset the 9.5% ABV, so theoretically you could drink this all night!!

I enjoyed it a lot, and I'll be back to it.
