A- Espresso color, thin tan head which goes away quickly

S- Coffee, toasted malts

T- Wow. Nice complexity going here. Very subtle cherry note, some coffee, tobacco. Almost like a black & mild cigar with a cherry wood tip. Another sip and now some vanilla coming through. I am shocked that this beer is 11.5 abv, the heat on this beer is hidden quite well.

M- Nice and smooth, relatively low carbonation. It could only be better on tap with nitro.

O- Man, these guys have outdone themselves with this one. Very nice. Great example of everything you want with this particular style of beer, then adding their own little twist on it. Would be really cool to put one of these away for a couple years and see what it's like.

22oz bomber poured into Funky Buddha 18oz snifter.

A- Pours a dark black with a thin coffee mocha brown head that recedes to just a very thin lasting layer. Very light spotty lacing.

S- Hazlenuts predominate with some dark chocolate and subtle cherry. Prefer the regular a little bit, cherry takes away a little bit from hazlenut/dark chocolate.

T- Dark chocolate with just a faint touch of bitterness, milk chocolate, hazlenuts, light cherries that come out a bit more on the finish. Cherries add an interesting play but still slightly prefer the regular version.

M- Slightly on the thicker side with a nice creaminess, very smooth, highly drinkable, nice carbonation for style, no alcohol burn.

O- This was a nice interesting variant but I definitely preferred the regular Imperial Biscotti Break over this. While I definitely enjoyed this, I probably wouldn't spend over $15/bomber on this again. Definitely worth the try though, just don't expect anything mind-blowing.

A: ink black in the glass off a translucent dark brown pour; a fluffy finger of mocha foam slimmed to a thin collar that persisted

S: roasted malt aromas, suggesting char, espresso, and dry cocoa, with just a bit of fruitiness

T: dark roasted bittersweet chocolate and cold espresso, hints of tang from the cherry, slight medicinal element; chocolaty and smoothing as it warmed; mellow roast with a tart cherry zing

M: smooth, medium bodied, no palpable carbonation, just a touch of stickiness; smooth

O: a well-done stout, not as similar to Imperial Biscotti Break as I'd expected. Had a lighter feel and the cherry character is quite distinct. The cherry flavor was more tart than sweet, and added an intriguing element to the beer. Worth a buy.
