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.

3.75/5 rDev -3.8%
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.
