On tap at MacGregor's Grill and Tap Room on East Avenue, in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark brown, almost black, almost opaque. 2 inch mocha colored head, good lacing all the way down.

Smells like espresso beans, vanilla, and roasted malts.

Lots of chocolate in the taste that I didn't get in the aroma, but the star here is the coffee. Bitter rich espresso beans up front, with a bit more coffee like sweetness in the back, enhanced by a touch of vanilla and chocolate. Roasty bitterness is a big deal here as well.

Full bodied, not the fullest ever, but still very satisfying. Creamy and smooth, very drinkable. Low carbonation.

For 4.99 a bomber, this is one of the best deals out there for an imperial stout. Tons of great coffee flavor.

Poured from bottle to glass, rich black color with a small tan colored head

Smell is kind of a sweet dark malty with a lot of coffee in the background , makes my mouth water

Not the full bodied mouthy beer I thought it would be , kind of weak in that aspect , but the carbonation was just right

The flavor is awsome , nice sweet malty with a ton of coffee flavor , a rich flavored beer that is a realy belly warmer , tons of booze coming off this beer but it goes well with the other rich flavors

Overall this is a great stout , I can't wait to get my hands on a few more bottles of this , just wish it was sold local to me and not 100 miles away

2012 Release

A: Pours a clear opaque extremely dark brown (almost black) in color with moderate to significant amounts of visible carbonation and some reddish brown highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense dark tan head that slowly reduces to a medium large thick patch with a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts with some lighter notes of coffee, just a hint of piney hops towards the finish.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of dark roasted malts and some very light hints of dark chocolate. Following the malts, there are moderate to strong flavors of coffee with just a hint of piney hops. Moderate amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Smooth, though slightly thin, with light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: This beer is deceptive in it's strength as the alcohol is extremely well hidden - I really enjoyed the coffee flavors which become even more pronounced as the beer warms up. Pretty easy to drink.
