look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured into a snifter while waiting for the steaks to grill, noon-ish.
A: Black with tan highlights. A half finger head that leaves big bubbles in its wake. A tan ring around the glass. Good lacing.
S: Wake up and smell the coffee! Coffee grounds dominate.
T: A pleasant Jittery Joe's Coffee sensation followed by oatmeal and vanilla undertones. Toffee and malts drive up and take a break.
M: medium and creamy. Full bodied.
O: A great brunch drink. The turtles over in Athens, GA know how to cook their beer-fast. A top notch imperial stout that certainly sticks its neck out to please.

Poured from bottle into Hoppin Frog snifter. Date on bottle is 2012. Date of review is 3/12/14.
Appearance- Pitch black with absolutely no light coming thru when held up to a bright light. Really beautiful dark tan half finger head sits on top of this beer.
Smell- Roasted malts and smoke jump right up into my nose holes. Sweet chocolate and slow-roasted beef come through too. Very little coffee, probably because of the 2 year aging.
Taste- Coffee with cream and sugar right away. It's just like drinking a delicious iced coffee from my local hipster coffee shop. I also detect sweet and sour cherries. Of course, there is still the roast and smoke too.
Mouthfeel- Just a bit thinner than I had expected. I get that chalky but pleasant film that has me believing I am drinking coffee.
Overall- The coffee has faded but still a very enjoyable beer. Not much else to say, does what it's supposed to do.
