look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Jet black with a chocolate head.

Smell: A fresh cup of coffee, with a touch of chocolate.

Taste: Like many hoppy brews the first sip was a bit bitter but the aftertaste left a hint of chocolate and toffee behind. Working my way through the bottle my tongue identified vanilla, oatmeal, raisin, and molasses.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and thick.

Overall: Delicious.

I poured this brew rather vigoriously and what i got was a Guiness like effect, awesome.
This beer is super deep black with a tall dense mocha head sitting on top making a nice contrast.
Plenty of lacing too.
Aroma is fantastic with deep fresh coffee notes over a sutle roasted malt bill.
Taste is not as intense as the nose but that doesn't mean it lacks flavor, ther is a nice depth of flavor which i enjoy.
The taste is richly malted sweet almost like a milk stout with bitter black coffee weaving through out. There is a slight alcohol warming at the very end.
Drinks thick and smooth numbing my tongue ever so slightly. A bitter coffee aftertaste ends it.
This is a good beer and worth the effort to find.

On-tap at Engine 15 in Jacksonville.

A: Deep black with a tan head, moderately lacy but fades to a thin ring

S: Major coffee smell with a little bit of chocolate in the background

T: Coffee is forefront and dominates the whole way through, but you can pick up some dark chocolate and roasted maltiness toward the end. There is more flavor to the beer than you would guess by the all-coffee smell.

M: Thick and creamy

O: I really enjoyed drinking this beer, even though the dominance of the coffee was a little more than I was hoping for. Not one of my top favorite Imperial Stouts, but one that I would drink again.

12 oz bottle received in a trade with UNCCTDawg. Thanks, Bro!

Poured into a Founders snifter.

A: Jet black/dirty oil appearance. Nice two fingers tan head sits atop an agressive pour.

S: Beautiful dark roast coffee smell wafts from the snifter. An olfactory delight.

T: A sweet start followed by a nice bitter coffee tang in the middle, followed by a thin chocolaty velvet finish.

M: A nice mouthfeel that if were just a bit heavier would put this brew over the top.

O: A real treat. Highly recommend.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Jet black, typical of a stout. A one-finger chocolate head that shrinks to a paper thin head that tops the glass.

S: Rich coffee and dark chocolate. Very sweet to the smell

T: Very sweet dark chocolate. Roasted coffee as well. Along with milk, all three flavors blend incredible well.

M: Very creamy and low-carbonated. Very thick, but the mouthfeel enhances all the flavors even more.

Overall: This was my first ever try of this delicious beer. Waited a month to try it since its release in Dec. 2012. It reached and exceded all expectations for it, rivaling FBS as the best coffee oatmeal stout out there.
