On Tap at 101 Beer Kitchen. Reviewed from notes.

Pours black with a small beige head and pretty strong carbonation. Smell is black licorice and coffee. Maybe some plum.

Taste is sweet with dark fruit, lots of black licorice. Not much coffee flavor, but very tasty.

Mouthfeel is thick but not overpowering. Overall, very good.

Bean Me Up (imperial coffee stout)

LOOK: Pours a brownish black with no sediment. Light brown colored foam forms and laces the pint nicely. Appears like what you might expect of a coffee stout.

SMELL: Roast, wood tone hops, and certainly a fruitiness full of alcoholic esters. A bit of chocolate and sweet coffee emerges late.

TASTE: Rolled outs, roasted malts, mocha and booze are the major players here. There is a touch of dark fruits and even berry coming from the ale yeast fermentation. Hop bitterness is mild and leafy, kept mostly in check from the other big flavors. Wood and coffee bean come through late. Let this one warm up, that's where the coffee and malts really get to express themselves. Closer to room temperature, a vanilla infused coffee note comes through, which is the highlight of the drinking experience.

FEEL: Ultra smooth, full bodied, medium/low carbonation. Wouldn't surprise me if oats were used in the brewing process, as the beer is smooth and carries a light, oatmeal flavor to go with the coffee and roast.

OVERALL: Another solid beer from Fatheads. Big roast, moderate coffee, easy to drink.

Brown-black. Head looked nice after the pour. The surface is still coated with foam after fifteen minutes.

Very mocha in the nose. Notes of dark coffee and chocolate syrup. Roasty malts are semi-sweet and lightly grainy. Porter-like, with malty notes and vanilla accents.

Roasty and a little gruff. Stout-ier in flavor. Coffee, graham cracker, and roasted grain. And, alcohol. Quite a bit of that. Damages the mouthfeel a bit. Light cherry fruitiness punctuates a medicinal booziness. Dark fruits, too. Dry bitterness appears congruently with the fruitiness.

Hefty body, strongly boozy. Mild carbonation. Medium drinkability.
