Ridiculously drinkable for an imperial stout. The coffee flavor is very strong indeed, almost not even a beer! There is a touch of chocolate and vanilla too. Great balanced flavor. One is plenty because of the alcohol, but damn, Lagunitas knows what's up!

Review from 9/2010 notes. Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a deep ruby amber. Minimal tan head with lacing.. Dark malt and chocolate aroma with a little coffee. Dark malt, coffee and chocolate with a light hop and coffee finish. A decent, well made stout, but not exciting enough for me to stay up all night from the caffeine.

Dark brown with lots of red around the edges. Not much head to speak of.
I smell coffee though the aromas are not as pronounced as I would've thought. It also smells sweet and I get some floral hop aromas.
I taste coffee, caramel, toasted bread, and finishes with a bit of sweetness on the finish.
It's medium bodied, smooth up front with a little malt sweetness on the finish and is moderately carbonated.
This is not what I would've expected from an imperial stout. The coffee flavors and aromas seem to be muted but it's still tasty. Not sure that I would spring for a bottle of this again.

A: Brownish red coffee color. Looks a little light and not as dark as other imperial stouts I've seen. Unique coffee colored head.

S: Sharp sour scent like an acidic coffee or chocolate.

T: Chocolate comes through more than the coffee, it being slightly bitter but not too bad. Alcohol is well masked.

M: Sits with a good body but a little light.

I think the outstanding aspect of this beer is how well the alcohol is masked. The other flavors are not blowing my mind per se but it's still a pretty solid beer. Gonna pair it with some chocolate on my second glass.
