4.6/5  rDev +17.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

From a brown 720 ml bottle. Opaque pitch black in appearance, practically impermeable to light. Tall creamy mocha head that eventually settles to a very sticky cap with gashes of lacing.

Rounded char and espresso notes on the nose, treacle, some licorice, slight alcohol.

Intense robust flavours, roasted and char malt, sweetens a bit in the middle like cappuccino, clean smoky and earthy finish and aftertaste, rounded coffee grounds.

Full-bodied but not thick, smooth and rounded.

Very enjoyable, an amazingly approachable Imperial Coffee Stout, they get points for both approaches and pulling them off. A stout that everyone should seek out, I know I'm gonna get my fill while it's still available.

3.56/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours black with a small khaki head, which has pretty good retention, and leaves spotty lacing. The Aroma has espresso, cocoa, dark chocolate, and dark roasted malt.

The taste is somewhat charred with dark roasted malt, espresso, dark chocolate, cocoa, and black licorice. There is not much sweetness, and there is a bit more of a charred taste than I would like, but it is still pretty good.

Light to medium bodied with modest carbonation. There is a charred malt aftertaste. Somewhat creamy. Not a bad beer at all. Worth trying if you get the chance.

I love esoresso stouts and this just did not do it for me.

Taste: Comes on nice and smooth with a good espresso taste then turns very bitter for the after taste Its got a very strange middle that is quite unpleasant to me.

Smell: It smells quite nice very strongly of dark coffee and lightly of stout under that.
