4.25/5 rDev -3%
22 ounce bottle - $15.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Chugs out an onyx black body with a thickish, slowly receding, dark tan-hued head.
Smell: IB is marked by its unmistakable almond-scented nose that literally jumps out of the glass, followed fast by robust, just-roasted coffee, melty sweet chocolate, subtle vanilla beans, steeped prunes, and a splash of clean alcohol.
Taste: A double-chocolate almond cookie dunked in rich morning-fresh coffee generously dosed with sweetened vanilla-flavored almond milk and even a drip of Amaretto. A dark fruitiness shortly creeps in, as does a (very) little roasty bitterness, maybe a snippet of restrained leafy, tobacco-laced hops. The various flavors, some nutty, and the dessert-like sweetness just roll back and forth over the tongue, progressing beyond the smooth, slightly warming, slightly drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Silky mouthfeel.
Overall: Listen, if you can't get excited about this beer, you don't deserve coffee, vanilla beans OR almonds.

4.21/5 rDev -3.9%
Appearance: At 11.5% one wouldn't expect to much of a head and this does not surprise on that front; the liquid itself is pitch black and the viscosity leaves some legs
Smell: As the name would suggest, it smells like a biscotti dipped into a cup of black coffee: cookie dough, almond and a hint of chocolate
Taste: Rather sweet from the outset, with cookie dough, sweetened chocolate, vanilla and almond, with coffee flavors building in the middle; much the same, after the swallow
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with low carbonation
Overall: I wonder how much the name of the beer influences the taste I perceive, but this is an interesting beer, albeit the sweetness makes it something I would not want to drink frequently
