Appearance – Dark brown, but slightly translucent. A small-medium head with a little lacing that quickly drips back into the beer.

Smell – A surprisingly strong smell of chocolate, malt, and chili pepper with mint. Some coffee as well. It’s pretty nice.

Taste – Chocolate, malt, and I get a hint of mint (am I the only one that notices this?) Taste isn’t as strong as the smell.

Mouthfeel – Lightly carbonated, a little watery for an imperial stout. Could use a bit more alcohol for my taste. Some bitter hoppiness in the aftertaste.

Drinkability – A decent beer that went down easy.

Pours really dark brown, a click away from black, with a small mocha head that will quickly turn to a thin lace.
The coffee smell is really something special. Really rich freshly grounded roasted coffee bean, wow, just like walking into a small coffee shop. Cocoa powdered dark chocolates, cigar, hints of black pepper, burnt cake, faint wood and some earthy hop. A bit of dark fruit, but really really faint.
Coffee owns the taste too. Rich black coffee, really strong, like a ristretto, lacking the extra Arabica coffee acidity and in its place getting a nice chocolate sweetness (hint of cream in there too). A really light dark fruit zing, something like dark cherries. Nice licorice tho, hint of cinnamon. Roasted malts don't take over, but accompany the coffee in a nice bitter finish. Hop has little space to show up, but there's some unexpected prickly pepper/chilli here too, tho it's not stated on the label. Fits really well.
Aftertaste is obvious, but rich, nice coffee, some dark chocolate, some burnt malt, dusty and powdery, coating all the palate. Body is light to medium, almost smooth if not for that bit of prickle.
Not sure they really added spaghetti in this one or it's just a joke from the brewers. Still, they added coffee and cocoa nibs, and they did really really good with that. Did not expect this surprise.

Pulled from my "cellar" which is actually my garage fridge which holds the aged beers. This beer's number was up tonight. Poured from the 12oz bottle onto a snifter. Jet black beer with very little head and almost no lacing. Super smooth mouthfeel and very dominant coffee flavoring. Excellent coffee taste. Worth a try if you see one, pick it up.

Pours a black color. 1/4 inch head of an off-tan color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of coffee, sweet malt, roasted malt, hint of alcohol, toffee, and slight hops. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial Stout. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation. There is a noticeable bitterness from the roasted malt. Tastes of coffee, sweet malt, roasted malt, slight hops, toffee, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good aroma, body, and blend. The toffee flavors dominate the finish.
