A - pours a nice jet black. 1 inch of light brown head that faded to leave a nice crown of lace.

S - Great coffee presence. Malty, with chocolate and slight touch of hops(?). Coffee definitely take the center stage here, but the nose is very nice.

T - Follows suit with the nose. Coffee, coffee and more coffee. Very good. A little boozy, but I like that.

M - Very nice medium to full body. Pretty easy to drink considering it is an imperial stout. Quite pleasant.

O - Very nice beer. I was looking for a good coffee stout and this delivered perfectly. It has a strong coffee foundation, but yet a few touches of other goodies to keep it intriguing. This was from a trade, but I will buy this beer again, when I see it.

Thanks to ThickNStout for this long-time want. Pretty excited to finally try this one. Pours fairly thick with about 1 finger of deep brown head.

Smells like a pot of cooled coffee followed by chocolate. Some subtle alcohol notes are in there as well.

The taste starts with a big coffee bitterness followed by some chocolate sweetness. Then finishes bitter again.

Full mouthfeel, light carbonation. Pretty much spot on for an 8% coffee stout.

I would be glad to wake up to this beer any time.

4.1/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle poured into a glass. Vintage 2012

A: Pours a very dark brownish black with a half finger dark tan head. Some visible carbonation visible. Not really any lacing.

S: Coffee, roasted malt, almost a peppery spice to this as well.

T: Quite a balanced beer. Coffee isn't as strong as anticipated. More of a roastiness and dark fruitiness. Oatmeal in there as well as chocolate. Alcohol is well hidden. Decent bitterness from the hops.

M: Very smooth full body with a creamy mouthfeel. On the low end of carbonation. Clean finish. Very easy drinking.

Overall a real tasty brew that I think may be better a little closer to its season. I know coffee is a flavor that tends to fade with time and I think that has happened with this beer.
