Pours a black color. 1/4 inch head of a tan color. Decent retention and poor lacing. Smells of oatmeal, coffee, sweetness from lactose, sweet malt, hops, hint of roasted malt, and alcohol. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial Stout. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of roasted malt, sweet malt, alcohol, coffee, sweetness from lactose, hint of liquor, and a hint of hops. Overall, weak appearance, good aroma, body, and blend.

Bottle shared by Rob and Lisa, thanks for the opportunity.
Huge coffee and brown sugary roasted grain goodness. The sweetness compliments the coffee flavor very nicely. Great brew!
