12oz bottle, bottled 25 Oct 2013 that I picked up today at Riley's to try before the recently released Devil over a Barrel (the partially BA version of this beer). Poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 4/17/2014.
A- Opaque dark cola brown body. Doesn't illuminate at all. Comes with a one finger off-white head. Good retention, halfway sticky lacing.
S- Lots of rich black coffee, baker's chocolate, roast malt. Milk chocolate sweetness, almost like a lactose addition. Smells better than I expected.
F- Black drip coffee, milk chocolate, roast malts and a rich nuttiness that complements the coffee well. A lactose-like sweetness balances the coffee bitterness on the backend.
M- Medium bodied, on the thinner side as it is slightly watery in feel, but not in flavour. Good carbonation, expected for the style. Finish is nicely balanced- not too dry nor is it watery, but it is also simultaneously sweet (milk chocolate sweetness) and bitter (black coffee). Would have liked the body to be more substantial, especially as this has adjunct oatmeal.
O- Very good imperial porter with a very rich malt profile that blends coffee in very well. A very good buy at $10/4-pack. Looking forward to trying the partially BA version of this.

The Devil made me do it pours a black color with a small, but long lasting and lacing head. There is a huge rich, and creamy coffee aroma. The taste has a nice bold coffee flavor, but is very creamy and has a nice oatmeal flavor. Very drinkable, good flavors, just the smallest bit watery. Overall a very rich and creamy coffee beer.
