3/5 rDev -25%
Coal black pour with a light brown one-finger head. Really nice aroma of fresh coffee beans with a hint of chocolate. Very sweet flavor of chocolate and light roast coffee upfront. Medium body also has a hint of roasted malt and french roast coffee bitterness in the finish. Was kind of expecting more from the flavor as the smell was amazing.

Undated can, poured into a tulip glass. Billowing head of tan foam at first, it dwindles to a skim after a few minutes. Spindly halo of lacing all around the glass. Black with brownish edges.
Substantial coffee aroma at first, it tends to ebb away over time though. Rich dark roast.
Taste is bold with bitter dark coffee flavors, fairly complex and roasty coffee notes linger into the aftertaste. Body is fairly light for an "imperial stout", this seems more like a standard issue coffee stout, though a very tasty one. Smooth creamy feel. Overall this was nice and i'd recommend picking it up if you like a bold coffee stout.
