Beautiful thick almost Guinness like head, nice deep caramel colored with tight carbonation.

Nice deep rich coffee flavors with a perfect touch of sweetness.

The roasted coffee smells are really well balanced with the flavor..

Also with a 9.3% ABV it's not dry at all.. very smooth.. a Beer you can drink too fast and hate yourself the next morning.

With that said, I going to buy another 2 bottles tonight..

>>>

I have since then gone to Hardywood (They are near my office) and bought it multiple times and am currently hitting one of the growlers.

Since its a limited run and only limited (VERY) are left.. I feel bad for anyone that never had this.. It has to be the best beer I have EVER had.. and I have had a lot (mind you I like my beers high in ABV, with a sweet malty flavor.. Coffee and Chocolate and Vanilla are my favorite flavors and this Beer is loaded with them.

That said.. Saturday they release a new Beer, Chocolate Heat.. also a Russian Imperial Stout.. If you are in their distribution area get it !

Come to the Dark side - We have Stouts and Porters :) (1,097 characters)

750 mL bottle poured into a mini pint glass.

Appearance - Dark brown, almost black. Nice lacing. Thick collar and some wisps.

Smell - Ouch. Grassy raw coffee. Sweet malts. Harsh coffee.

Taste - Worse. Like watered down coffee. Very raw and green coffee flavor with a characteristic acidity. Just a bit of chocolate malt to back it up.

Mouthfeel - A little acidic. Even some booze. Bitterness.

Overall - Had this twice and neither time has it been good. Just a crappy coffee flavor. (486 characters)
