From bottle to Duvip.

A - Pitch black. I mean, black like the basement in the final scenes of "Silence of the Lambs". Beauty of a dark brown head. Just like I want my stouts to look! Fair lacing.

S - Strong coffee and chocolate notes. A bit of metallic scent drops this down a point from stellar. Still, wonderful bouquet on this one.

T - Amazing. Strong coffee and chocolate notes follow the aroma. Earthy notes from either the hops or the coffee, most likely the coffee. I want some of whatever this coffee is for the morning! Great choice. Aftertaste is black coffee with a bit of roasted malts and toffee.

M - Very, very good mouthfeel on this one. The oatmeal really gives it the thickness it needs and carbonation is spot on.

O - I actually enjoyed this more than FBS. It's better in my mind, but only by a tad. Outstanding beer.

Thanks to Stakem and jpmclaug for some bottles of this.
A- Poured into a tulip this beer comes out of the bottle and rests in the glass a fairly thick black, with a finder tan bubbly head that fades quickly to a film over the top of the beer and a 1/8" ring around the edge of the glass. Has som bubbles running the glass.
S- The nose is quite impressive on this beer. The "imperialness" is obvious in the aroma with a strong roasted malt presence along with a coffee chocolate combo and some toasted oat.
T- Another impressive quality to this beer, the flavors blend together nicely and maybe its just the placebo effect from the label but it really does taste like chocolate chip cookie dough. As well as some espresso.
M- Medium bodied brew with light carbonation and leaves a bitter chocolate after taste.
O- Very glad to have had this delicious treat.

Mocha head, black opaque body. Good lacing and head retention.

Smells like a sweetened black cup of iced coffee. Some coco, roasted malts, dark roasted coffee.

Tastes like a big iced bitter black roasted coffee. Fairly creamy and chocolately.

Medium bodied, low carbonation. Fairly creamy and thick feeling while still being fairly drinkable.

Overall this is a tasty coffee stout. Alcohol is well masked and drinkability fairly high. Good complexity with the roast, coffee and chocolate flavors.

$Thanks tommy for this 4 pack

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.
