This pours a motor oil black with an inch of cocoa-colored foam. There’s an aroma of coffee roast to it, clearly Blue Bottle—I drink their coffee and this had what I can only describe as an unmistakable “Blue Bottle” characteristic to it. Fantastic.

Tastes smoothly delicious. The Blue Bottle coffee lends itself to the imperial stout, rounding out the roast and cocoa notes. It’s an incredible expression of a coffee-laced imperial stout. One of the best I’ve had in recent memory. Smooth, warms nicely, and a great sipper.

Serving type: on-tap

Had on draft last night at Drake's Barrel House. Pour had a very dark,"cola" apperance. Taste was excellent. You can definitely tell that the coffee this was brewed, had extra TLC. Not overpowering coffee flavor, but you could taste the coffee through the entire time. Rich, cocoa, earthy flavors.
I really enjoyed it, I could get in trouble drinking this (9.5). Overall it was very enjoyable.
