2011 vintage 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Pitch black and oily-looking n the pour. Half an inch of light brown head that fell to thin congregation on the surface.
Sweet lactic nose with some medium-roast coffee, tart berry, and caramelly grain. Not so heavy with the roast. No char or smoke. Just a fruity coffee, with some sugars.
Now the taste, on the other hand, is a fully-realized sweet coffee with cream. A dollop of cream, implied from the lactose. There's a nice chewy, bitter oatmeal quality that punctuates the malt. Very oat-forward malt bill. It does wonders for the mouthfeel, too. Nice and chewy and smooth, but the taste bows out for that great coffee flavor and bitterness to finish out the taste. Some tart cherry and almond in there. Maybe I should say orgeat.
A prime coffee stout, and an even more prime Imperial Coffee Stout. A beer I always seem to forget about, and when I see it again, thoroughly enjoy it like it was the first time.

Served in a snifter
A - It is black night. I barely got any head. Just a sparse covering of mud colored foam was on top. It dissipated quickly.
S - The smell is straight up coffee and cream.
T - The taste starts out with dark chocolate and vanilla. Then comes the coffee with rich roasted flavor and just enough bitterness to balance out the sweeter start.
M - Full with relatively low carbonation.
O - This is one of the better coffee stouts that I have had. It reminds me of Short's Cup A Joe which I love.
