Picked up a six pack of cans of this one today for less than 8 bucks. An incredible deal for an above average coffee imperial stout. Pours a rich, opaque black color, with a huge fluffy tan head. Aromas of freshly roasted coffee beans, espresso and roasted malt. On the palate, smooth and flavorful, with loads of coffee, slightly burnt, chocolate and a hint of hops on the finish. Very good.

Poured from a can into a snifter. The beer pours a deep dark brown and settles to black with ruby red edges when held to the light. A nice tan head sits on top and laces the glass well. The smell is coffee, big coffee. It tastes very similar to founders breakfast stout. Some bitter chocolate flavors and a solid roasted malt backbone. This is somewhat light in body for an imperial stout, but at 8% it seems to fit the bill. This could be the easiest drinking imperial stout I've ever had. Great carbonation and medium bodied. Another great beer from a solid brewery.

Purs the color of your favorite morning Joe. A fat and beefy beige cream topper of two and a half fingers. Love that head...
Smells of roasted malts, some bean grounds ands cocoa.
Sweet grounds and toffee meet your face straight on. A thick wall of coffee in this one, matched with brown sugar and cream. Almost a hop touch in the back, however definitely a malt monster. This has the best coffee flavor I believe I've ever tasted in a coffee stout.
Mouthfeel is creamy, smooth, and lends a heavy bodied beverage with thick voluptuous small bubble carbonation which carpets the tongue
Overall this is the best coffee beer I have ever put to my lips. Buy some and enjoy it. A dessert, an sweet treat to be enjoyed, and considering six for ten bucks, wow!
