Thanks yet again to Andrew for the bottle.

Pours jet black, ring of off white head, no lace to speak of. Smell is of coffe and roast, chocolate both of the milk and dark variety, not a lot more going on but still a seemless blend of coffee, roast and chocolate. Taste is of coffee and roast, faint bit of char, chocolate, moderate bitterness throughout coming from both chocolate and hops, ashy/char/roast aftertaste. Lightly carbonated, medium full body. A great coffee stout that should be held in the same regard as Peche Mortel and FBS, something I would very much like to revisit again.

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.
