On-tap at Thirsty Monk, Asheville, NC

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a half finger high tan head that consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of roasted coffee beans are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of coffee beans along with hints of dark chocolate.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and somewhat smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has nice aromas and flavors but seems a little light and thin for an "Imperial" beer.

A - Pours a light black with a 1 inch black head

S - Espresso notes along with a hint of bakers chocolate and some roasty malts

T - The roasty malts take the lead but there is a nice coffee taste along with a nice touch of booze in the back

M - A little thinner than would care for

O - Some thinkness would essentially turn this into FBS. Really good but somewhat light. That said I'd drink this often if given the chance
