A - Pours a midnight black with a one-finger tan foamy head. Light amount of sticky lacing.

S - Aroma of sweet milk chocolate, whiskey, and fresh coffee.

T - Follows the aroma. Nice sweet milk chocolate upfront followed by dark roasted coffee. Finish is bitter coffee and whiskey. Whiskey does produce a nice warmth in the finish.

M - Full bodied with low carbonation. Nice creamy mouthfeel.

O - This is a great coffee forward Imperial Stout. The flavors blend seemlessly together. Awesome.

10oz poured into a tulip glass at Tipsy Cow in Madison, WI today, 3/25/2014.

App- dark black opaque body, one finger mocha head with decent retention. Not much lacing.

Smell- lots of bitter dark toast coffee, some milk chocolate sweetness from the malts. Nice and very coffee forward stout.

Flavour- solid, more heavy on the milk chocolates but the coffee bitterness takes a step back compared to the nose. Some bitter dark chocolate with a coffee forward aftertaste.

Mouthfeel- medium bodied on the thicker side, good carbonation. Otherwise standard imperial coffee stout. Bitter coffee finish.

Overall- decent coffee imperial stout that doesn't make me go crazy. But this isn't a bad option to pick up at the store if you're craving a pick me up and a throw me down bro simultaneously.

Purchased the last bomber at my local "beer heaven" outlet.

Cracked this baby open and poured into sniffer.

Extra bold black, with a perfectly brown head that stuck around for a bit.

Smell was wonderful. Roasted dark malted goodness with coffee and chocolate notes.

Superb, full-bodied and smooth. The aged-in-whiskey barrel flavoring came through too.

Taste was everything I was expecting. Full, smooth, beautiful to look at, smell and taste. One of the best beers I have had to date.
