Pours a near opaque mahogany color with a small, tan head that leaves little chunks of lacing.
Smells of deep roasted malts with some mild sweetness.
Tastes of the deep roasted malts with some hoppy notes. Malts lead off with bitter chocolate, molasses, and espresso. Oats have a presence with their mild flavor, but also with their typical smoothness. Hops add in the end and blend with the roasted bitterness, but do have a bit of grassy and citrus notes.
Mouthfeel is medium-full with a smooth amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is quite good, but doesn't quite keep pace with the bigger name imperial stouts.

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.
