Batch 40

Pours dark dark brown, essentially solid black in color with a thin half finger tan head that retains nicely .

Smell is great, lots of slightly charred chocolate malt forward over creamy vanilla aroma. There is a slight ripe blackberry aroma laying over a pretty big amount of alcohol. Coffee is very mild and nearly undetectable.

Taste is great and follows the nose. There is a good amount of somewhat sweet roasted chocolate malt. There is a slight tart fruity flavor that is cut almost immediately with a very high booze presence. Some charred malt on the backend over some more residual sweetness an booze.

Mouthfeel is great. Super thick semi sweet and just the right amount of charred bitterness. Very mild carbonation.

32 oz. growler straight from the brewery retail store.

Pours with a compact head of tan mocha foam that sticks around for a few minutes, then recedes to a velvet veil, leaving behind a tiny bit of spotty foam. Black body, no light gets through.

Aroma is a little closed at first, becoming roasty and more coffee forward as it warms. Trace sweetness that reminds me of caramelized plantains.

Flavor is much more coffee forward, roasty and bitter with a luxuriously creamy body. Yeast esters of caramelized plantains jump out again, and some trace warming alcohol though it's not much of a distraction. Lingering bittersweet chocolate mocha, caramelized plantain, smooth espresso. Really seamlessly integrated. Enjoyed every drop of this, hope it becomes a regular winter seasonal. This might be the best Begyle beer I've had, hard to compare to NxNW and Hophazardly though since they're so different.

22oz bottle from IAmJacksHopTongue (thank you!). Batch 54, bottled sometime in 2014. Served in a my Phish snifter.

Pours black with almost one full finger of milky tan head. The foam fades to a thin halo, leaving small spots of lace.

The strong aroma of freshly brewed coffee dominates the nose. Scents of cocoa, burnt sugars and some roasted malts peek through the coffee.

Tastes of bold espresso, brown sugar, chocolate, singed caramel, heavy cream, rolled oats and a little alcohol. Overall smooth and sweet with a pleasant bitterness from the coffee. The alcohol is noticeable without being hot. Quite easy to drink.

Creamy, fullish feel with soft carbonation. Creamed espresso, chocolate, caramel and a hint of booze in the aftertaste.

Imperial Pajamas is darn fine take on the breakfast stout. A little sweeter with less roast than typical but an enjoyable quaff. It may not replace any of my favorites but I'd certainly drink it again if it came my way.
