Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter on a cold spring morning.
Less than a finger thick shining brown colored head that recedes slowly into a thin dark tan colored head. Very thick dark chocolate brown color while pouring. Pitch black inside the glass. Excellent lacing. Decent retention. Opaque.
Aroma is full of good grounded coffee. Typical pungent coffee bean smell fills the nose. Dark roasted malts in the background. Strong nose. A little bit of chocolate sweetness and some booze.
Taste is excellent as well. A lot of smooth oatmeal stuff blended with dark roasted malts. Coffee again dominates the flavor. A lot of charred and burnt up flavors. A good imperial bitterness to the beer both by hops and the burnt up malts. A bit of alcohol warmth. Finish is bitter with lasting impression of coffee.
Mouth feel is full bodied with good thickness and viscosity. Some alcohol warmth.
A very well made Imperial coffee stout.

Bottle shared by Curran. Thanks man!
Pours a thin looking watery black, with a small quarter inch head, and not much lacing.
Smells incredibly strongly of nutty roasted coffee, with roasted malt, and baker's chocolate.
This has one of the strongest coffee flavors in a stout that I've ever had, but it's also nicely integrated, as well. Creamy chocolate and vanilla flavor- slightly bitter chocolate chip flavor, with Hershey's syrup, a cookies and cream flavor, and a very small amount of hop bitterness.
This one is medium bodied, but I wish it was a little thicker. Low carbonation, creamy, very smooth mouthfeel.
A real classic that I'm glad I'm finally getting to try for the 1st time.
