4.58/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a New Belgium globe on 3/2/13.

A: Poured an oily black with one finger of espresso head that retained well. Head receded to a creamy rim covering the body.

S: Tons of roasted coffee jumping out of the glass, roasted malts, sweet milk chocolate. Huge coffee nose.

T: Wow, the roasted coffee comes at the palate right away. Bitter coffee, sweet chocolate, and subtle whiskey barrel as it finishes. Leaves a lingering coffee flavor on the tongue.

M: Thick and creamy with a slight touch of alcohol warmth. Dry finish.

O: I think this is the most coffee flavored stout I've ever encountered. Super flavorful, bold, and decedent. A must have for coffee lovers and those that appreciate a coffee forward Imperial Stout.

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

Alabama

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.
