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.

This beer is a dark reddish-hued liquid. The head is light brown, foamy, but it quickly dissipates. The aroma is intense...malty, sugary, with notable roasted coffee scents underneath. The malt clearly stands in front of the coffee. Moderately sweet, some bitterness. Limited hop profile. The beer has low carbonation, but is also less full and robust than expected. It's a sweet, but balanced, bitter, slightly coffee'ed beer. Interesting, but not great.

Pours a dark brown with a cm or two of head. Some dark malts and a lot of coffee in the nose. Taste is exactly what a coffe stout should be. You could warm this up and drink it in the morning and not know the difference. A little boozy on the finish. Very nice silky mouth feel. Overall I really enjoyed this one and wouldn't hesitate to buy it again when I'm in the mood for a coffee stout.
