A beautiful, pitch black beer with a frothy tan head. Smell is mild with strong hints of coffee and slight hints of chocolate and cocoa. The taste is pretty similar with the coffee even more prominent but not overwhelming To me, many coffee stouts have too much coffee and not enough beer, but this is among the most balanced I've had. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, though a bit thinner than many imperials. Oddly, I enjoyed this beer more when it was really cold and felt it didn't improve with warming.

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.
