Poured on tap into a snifter at Churchkey.

Thin tan brown threecollar millimeter collar, leopard lacing and spotty character. A simple classic dark brown walnut body, with real nice ruby red edges.

Ripping nose on this sucker. Lots of fresh roasting coffee bean, right to the grind. A bit of large dark powdered cocoa. A clean charring roast feeling slightly giving hints of dark mild style. Really impressive.

Palate is full of roast coffee. Slightly hinting at chocolate but quite burried as the coffee overwhelms and dominates. Light impressive mild and light porter sensing body. Feels and comes off like a session beer. Has some residual root beer and cola sweetness.

A real interesting take on an imperial stout with a powerful impressive bouquet. Solid brew.

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.

Bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a dark, inky black, with a half inch mocha-colored head, and a bit of lacing.

This one smells super, strongly of spaghetti. Just kidding, it doesn't. There is a lot of coffee though, fairly strongly roasty smelling, with some chocolate as well.

The addition of spaghetti does absolutely nothing for this beer. Maybe it contributes to the body or something, maybe not. But beyond the flavor-less adjunct of the title of this beer, there's a lot going on here. There's some great roasty coffee flavor, the coffee definitely has a very dark Italian roast flavor to it. There's some bittersweet chocolate as well, along with a hefty portion of roasted malt.

This has a medium body, with a slick but creamy mouthfeel. This could be a bit thicker, but it's not detrimentally thin. The carbonation level is fairly low.

This is a really nice coffee stout. The spaghetti's a bit of a gimmick, but the beer itself is solid.
