Cask beer served to pint glass. Dark, dark body presents with very thin topping of light tan lace. Aroma is coffee like, burnt, almost acrid. Exactly what is promised by the description on the menu. Flavors are heavily roasted malt, burnt coffee, and a tinge of mocha sweetness. Not much aftertaste to speak of, rare for a beer roasted to this magnitude. Body is limp and ineffectual. Drinkable with my meal but not something I'd wait in line for. Would try next time on tap.

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.

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.

A- Pours a dark brown color maybe black with a good sized tan head. Pretty solid lacing and spotty lacing.

S- Is dominated by coffee, cream, and dark chocolate. Tiny bit of hops come through.

T- Taste is again quite a bit of coffee. Followed by a cream flavour, touch of vanilla and a bit of chocolate. Has a nice bitterness to it.

M- A little thin in body and low in carbonation.

D- Pretty easy to drink and enjoyable.

Pours jet black with a light tan head. In the aroma, dry coffee and a roasty malt that is faint. In the taste, dry coffee, and a nice roasty malt off sets it well. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel and a semi dry coffee aftertaste. Nice dryness to a coffee stout and on cask, uber smooth.
