3.45/5 rDev -13.5%
A: Dark brown to black with no light getting through. Pours with a 1 1/2 finger tan head. Nice tight bubbles. That dissipate relatively quickly.
S: Bready, chocolaty with coffee mixed in. Initially there was an off-smell of metallic but it went away.
T: Toffee sweetnees up front and in the middle. There is coffee - but it is late in this one so the finish and the after taste have a nice coffee flavor.
M: Maybe a little thin and tingly. Doesn't have the big chewy feel of a almost 9% stout.
O: This is decent and I would drink it if offered again. I probably wouldn't seek it out again. The PROS are the appearance and the fact that the 8.9% ABV is well hidden. The CONS are that it is a very subtle coffee flavor for a coffee stout.

4.43/5 rDev +11%
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice. Vintage 13.
Appearance: Pours pitch black with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of deep tan head that quickly fades into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.
Smell: A rich, roasty, and sweet dark malt forward aroma with big hints of coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Upfront dark roasted barley malts with big hints of dark roast coffee beans, dark chocolate, toast, biscuit, caramel, grains, yeast, smoke, cream, and slight vanilla. Sweet hints of molasses. Dark fruit hints of raisin, cherry, and fig. Hops are very light. A very good imperial coffee stout aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma, a very roasty, rich, and nicely sweet dark malt driven taste with big notes of coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Dark roasted barley malts with big upfront notes of dark roast coffee beans, bitter dark chocolate, toasted bread, caramel, biscuit, yeast, grains, smoke, and some sweet notes of cream and vanilla. Also some sweet notes of molasses. Dark fruit undertones with notes of cherry, fig, and raisin. A really good coffee stout taste.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, slick, and slightly syrupy. Finish is smooth with a well hidden alcohol presence.
Overall: A really good take on an imperial coffee stout. Very good dark coffee and chocolate flavors with a nice creamy body.
