Bottle from The Beer Temple. Served in a taster glass.

A - Big tan foam lingers, leaving behind tons of sticky lacing. Pitch black body. Ominous. Not sure what else one would want here.

S - Big coffee, roasted malts, light smoke, dark pumpernickel bread, dark chocolate, and perhaps a tad yeasty. Alcohol is very well-hidden.

T - Taste isn't quite as good, with less of the sweetness and more espresso bitterness and heavier emphasis on roasted and charred malts. Basically my exact same problem with the other beers in this series, but more extreme due to the coffee addition.

M - Medium-full body, some roasty and gritty coffee grounds in the texture, viscous, chewy, with lower carbonation. Again, well-hidden alcohol.

D - I didn't find this to be a big improvement on the base beer; while the coffee imparted more depth to the aroma it put the burnt and charred notes out of balance flavor-wise. Otherwise, it's a very solid Imperial Stout. Worth checking out, particularly if you're that guy who likes eating the burnt cookies and/or popcorn. (1,052 characters)

A: Deep dark brown under a 2” dark tan to brown finely bubbled foam collar that clings to the glass providing thick cluimps of lace.
S: coffee, dark chocolate, dark malt
T: Big creamy start – a hint of malt and then a big coffee rush – it alternates briefly between espresso and mocha with some higher alcohols and some esters sitting between the coffee and the chocolate action. Suggestions of dark cherries.
F: Big and chewy with very fine and soft carbonation and soft warming on the finish.
O: The coffee and the chocolate are very well balanced and the rich texture makes this very easy to drink. (611 characters)

Tasting 9/9/14

This big stout shows off the big, thick, robust body that stout lovers look for. It's heavy and black, pouring completely viscous and absolutely opaque. The head, a medium-brown colored crown, sits proudly at two fingers, thick and immovable. It leaves on the glass an equally proud display of heavy lacing.
This beer displays all kinds of complexity, strength and balance in good measure. There's a show of roast, to be sure: the malts lay it down, the coffee is evident and seems fresh, there's a bit of char and some toasted nut to add to it all. What it does extremely well, though, is to cut out any acridity, any acidity that roasting tends to bring out, or any harshness in the char. Then it brings out a very creamy sweetness, lots of vanilla and an almost whipped cream note with, perhaps, a touch of molasses on the end. There's a little heat with very little ethanolic booziness. Really, there's just so much coffee, sweetness and roast balancing each other so nicely; this is a really excellent brew.
The thick and viscous body is as expected, with the robustness likewise expected. It flows on the tongue, pretty heavy in the middle but very smooth and with lots of complexity lingering in the finish. (1,239 characters)
