375mL bottle into a snifter
No bottling dates

A: opaque black, lots of brown floaties, just under 1 fingers width if mocha head, decent retention and lacing 4

S: wow what a nose, sweet, boozy, roasted malts, lots of coffee, char. The booze and char gives it a barrel aged character even though it is not. Awesome 4.5

T: lots of sweetness, roasted malt, cream, oak, coffee notes which are mostly bitterness on the finish 4.25

M/D: full bodies, carbonation appropriate, quite smooth, no hint of ABV, very good drinkability 4.5

O: great beer, really pleasantly surprised by this one, would definitely recommend 4.5

They don't get much prettier. Fourth in a flight, and sheets of lacing still coat the glass. Nice film of head.

Aroma is dominated by rich espresso, hints of roast malt, nutty, toasted malt, and luscious dark chocolate.

Flavor is coffee throughout, with rich espresso complemented by lactose sweetness. Lacks the acrid character often found in lesser examples of the style. The finish is roasty bitter, reminiscent of coffee grounds.

Rich, thick, velvety mouthfeel.

I'm not a coffee drinker, but this is a well done brew. The coffee hides the alcohol fairly well. Not the most complex stout, but it does what it's supposed to do very well.

Black pour with a nice fluffy pillow of mocha head, quite dense and leaving lots of traces on the glass as it slowly subsides.
Smell of chocolate covered raisin, mild sweet coffee, some juicy plum, dash of cocoa powder, black licorice, faint chocolate cake, faint leafy hop.
Big juicy dark fruit start, lots of plum, fig and raisin, amped up by strong coffee acidity imposed from the start. Works well with the following dark chocolate, hints of vanilla, black licorice, and brings a nice coffee liqueur feel alongside the alcohol. Roasted malts a bit late, but right at the end, quite ashy. Hops are strong from early on, rather earthy and not quite mixing well with the coffee, at least for me.
Aftertaste is a bit bland, burnt bread with some coffee powder. Still, dark fruit is nice and refreshing with every new sip. Alcohol is just warm. Medium body, smooth enough.
A nice imperial coffee stout, boasting with a big American hop addition that it could do without, i think. Still solid stuff.
