Hit the spot with that coffee flavor. It was strong enough to enjoy, but not too strong. It was rich in its stout manner and engulfed my taste buds in that way that only really good beer does. This brew is definitely going on my Christmas wish list. Hopefully Santa isn't Baptist.

Serving type: on-tap

3.94/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a pitch black color capped by an inch of tan foam; a smattering of lace is left behind

Smell: Ashy oak and burnt coffee beans with bittersweet chocolate undertones

Taste: Scorched black bread and "Charbucks" coffee, up front, with bittersweet chocolate building, in the middle; after the swallow, the Whiskey barrel treatment adds weight and a hint of vanilla; somewhat boozy in the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation; some warmth in the gullet

Overall: Normally, my reviews mark down beers for having to much sweetness but, in this case, I think the beer would have benefited from some sweetness in the malt to balance out all of the char and burnt flavors; not a bad beer but just my two cents

4.45/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 22 oz bomber into snifter.

A: Pours a very dark murky brown that almost looked black. No light penetrating this sucker. Capped with a one finger mocha colored head that settled fairly quickly to a thin ring and left spotty lacing.

S: Roasted coffee beans, sweet dark chocolate, bourbon, and a hint of vanilla.

T: Follows the nose quite nicely. Good balance between roasted coffee and dark chocolate. I think I could drink this all day. Alcohol not very apparent.

M: Thick and creamy with a velvety texture that goes down rather smoothly.

O: Outstanding imperial stout. A much different beast than say BCBS but no less enjoyable.
