From notes taken on 9/9 at home:
A – Pours super dark as expected, but not thick. No head, just a little lacing on top.
S – Really lacking on the coffee. All I really get is dark malt and alcohol. Lots of alcohol on the nose which is usually a bad thing for me.
T – Whoa at the alcohol! I was expecting it after the nose but jeez. Coffee is very faint, maybe some chocolate notes but they are wiped clean off of the palate by the alcohol.
M – Body is way too light. Carbonation is crisp but the whole mouthfeel is a burning alcohol sensation.
O – Not impressed. As of lover of big & dark beers I was very disappointed. The coffee influence just wasn’t there for me. I’m hoping that I just happened to get a young bottle. I am going to buy another to cellar up for a while and revisit this review. After having the Crème Brulee Stout from the same series I was really looking forward to this one. Way too boozy for my likes!

A - Pitch black with half a finger of fizzy tan head, a little spotty lacing.
S - Weak coffee in the aroma, maybe it just didnt take well to the aging, vanilla, dark chocolate, very sweet caramel and toffee malts.
T - Super sweet stout, this is like an imperial milk stout with more of a hinting at coffee, lots of toffee flavor in this, vanilla, milk chocolate, definitely alcohol too.
M - Cloyingly sweet, viscous, silky.
O - Decent, but not what I remember it being like, I'm thinking it just didnt age well, but ohh well, thats the last I'll be having of this.
