I had this on tap as part of a flght of 5 Texas beers for $10 at the Flying Saucer Beer Emporium in downtown Houston, Texas. 5oz portions of 5 different beers.
The beer had a very dark brown color to it, but only had a thin tan rim on top for a head and even that dissipated quickly. Carbonation looked lively.
Coffee, toffee, and chocolate smell.
Roasted malt flavor with hints of coffee and chocolate. A nice bitterness adds balance, and a little bit of cream flavor makes it even more interesting.
A little on the thin side for a stout, and more carbonated than most, but I still liked what smooth, creamy texture that remained.
A very enjoyable stout from a brewery I never head of before trying this offering.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Half Acre tulip.
A- pours a dark brown with a 2" tan head. Littered with blotches and large bubbles of lacing.
S- big roast aroma, some coffee and chocolate.
T- light dark chocolate, roasted malts, and some pine bitterness.
M- medium body and carbonation. Lighter creamy feel with nice smooth finish.
O- very nice drinkable stout. Watch out because you can drink a few of these easily until the abv would catch up to you.

This beer pours a dark mahogany, not quite black, with a one finger head, no retention and no real lacing. The nose is a very powerful coffee, and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is pleasant, but nothing special. The taste is a big sweetness on the front, maybe molasses flavor, giving way to a biting bitterness with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted nuts, and a little alcohol. Overall a nice offering.

A: Poured a deep, deep brown with good carbonation leaving behind a small dirty wigte cap which fades fast leaving a faint rings and few bubbles
S: Day old Folgers coffee with a hint of chcolate
T: Confused. Is this an Imperial Brown or Imperial Stout? The backbone of brown malt, light coffee, toffee really makes me think thing this is a Imperial Brown, the only difference is the addition of coffee.The finish is highly carbonated with a lgering toffee, coffe and nuttiness. Rather clean and dry.
M: Medium bodied, a tad bit over carbed for a Imperial Stout? Body is a little thin for the style
O: This beer is somewhat tasty and enjoyable but I am big stcikler on BJCP guidelines. This beer as a Impy Stout is pretty far off.
