Notes/Commercial Description:
From the shadows of a dark and opulent curtain spring the robust aromas of locally roasted coffee and hardy malt. Deep-seated hop bitterness rallies with these conspirators, delivering a well-balanced thrust of assertive flavor to a bland tyrant. Raise a glass in celebration of liberating taste. Et tu, Brewte?

Poured from the bottle into a large snifter glass.

Deep dark walnut brown out of the bottle, good thick viscosity as it fills the glass. Head is quite dark with a big mocha dark brown but only makes about half a finger head. Dissolves to a thin collar, but leaves a good thick leg coating also on the side.

Real big bouquet. Good amounts of ripping bean, but huge notes of peanut butter and dark chocolate. A nice controlled pipping hot warmth as well from the coffee angle, excellently executed with just a hint of mild soft roast quality.

Palate seems to be hitting towards lighter character. Slightly fizzy finish with a mid palate that comes with lots of ripping bean. Slightly oily hop like coating and mild astringency but without any acrid off flavors luckily. Prickly and a bit wet mouthfeel. Good controlled bitter sweetness of dark chocolate on the finish to match with some of the coffee nicely.

It's not bad, but there's room for improvement slightly on the malt angle. The beer for a big imperial comes off a little weak in palate feel and flavor, but a solid decent coffee brewed stout nonetheless with a bizarre aroma to go with it.
