4.6/5  rDev +7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured from the bottle into my Terrapin 7th Anniversary pint glass.

A- Pours black with half a centimeter of deep mocha heard that dissipated relatively quickly leaving a nice skin of lacy head across the surface.

S- Great aroma full of roasted coffee, some bitter chocolate, and semi-sweet vanilla coming through.

T- The first flavor I get is the vanilla on the front of my palate, which quickly gives way to coffee. What I really like about this one is the smoothness of the coffee flavor; it's not so bitter as dominate completely, but it asserts itself enough to remind you that you're drinking a coffee stout (I am sure this has something to do with the quality of Jittery Joe's coffee as I have noticed this in other beers made with reputable coffee beans/sources.) In the finish, I get a nice nutty flavor, which I often find in oatmeal based stouts (either my palate confuses the two or they taste quite similar to me.)

M- Nice amount of carbonation followed by a great creamy mouthfeel.

D- Truly one of my favorite breakfast stouts. I will admit that I have a certain amount of nostalgia when it comes to this phenomenal beer, but I tried not to let it have an effect on my review. No booziness at all (granted it is on the low end for an "American Double/Imperial Stout." This is up there with Founders BS as one of my favorites.

12 oz bottle of 2013 poured into a shaker pint.

A: Pitch black body with a coffee colored one-finger head. not a lot of lacing or retention.

S: Coffee dominates the nose with hints of chocolate.

T: Taste just like an iced coffee, with some chocolate and oatmeal on the back end.

M: Creamy body leaving just a tinge of coffee bitterness.

O: Excellent imperial stout, would defiantly buy again.

4.2/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours black with ruby edges and a half-finger of tan head that retains nicely. Ground black coffee dominates the nose, which also has dark chocolate, toasted oats, raisins, and a hint of vanilla. I taste a lot of dark chocolate up front with some vanilla and caramel, then coffee on the back end with roasted malts. The flavor profile is great and the beer really evolves in the mouth, but I get an astringency from the roasted malts that detracts from the taste. The body is on the full side of medium with medium carbonation.
