1 pt, 6 oz bottle:

Pours black with a tan head that slowly becomes a thin cover that eventually settles to a lasting large island. Spotted lacing sticks.

The smell is rich and robust. Wonderful! Strong black coffee with dark grain and earthy/rooty notes - especially anise/licorice. Some plum mixes in.

The taste is also rich. Black coffee is powerful, but is balanced enough to let a complex imperial stout come through. Earthy, dark fruity, chocolate-like flavors mix with the coffee very well. The alcohol mixes in well, also - giving some mild warmth that enhances the layers of complexity. Sweet and roasty balanced finish. Root-like notes linger.

It has a silky, smooth body.

Rich and complex, yet very easy-to-drink. Coffee mixes very well with the strong stout character. This is a great brew! (And, well-priced, to boot!) Great example of the style!

Thanks to Tricerahops for this one.

Poured from a 22oz bottle, no #freshbeer info.

Pours a dark brown body with a fair head but retention is average and there's no leftover foam; not much lacing either. Aroma is fresh roasted coffee beans. Flavor is a prolonged robust coffee with sugar and cream to a minimum. Flavor is raw but body doesn't quite match up. I wouldn't peg this as an imperial stout but rather a regular one.
