look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

(330 ml bottle, cap says BF 26/05/26 ... poured into a fat, over-sized wine glass, dregs left behind)

L: poured with minimal foam, which fizzled out into very thin collar... extra dark brown, opaque liquid... not a scab of lace

S: wet coffee grounds, hint of old, dry black licorice... firm underlying malt base, but the coffee stands out most dominant, followed by a soft, bready roast from the coffee and dark malt... overall, doesn't quite prepare one for its flavors

T: definitely a unique flavor detectable immediately - sort of a decadent, nutty-toffee-covered coffee bean with a tiny raisin core... dark, leathery dried fruit undercurrent heavily blanketed beneath its lumbering, musky maltiness

F: low carbonation results in a plush, mildly oily, full-bodied, yet rather sluggish brew... no burn in the finish, delicate warmth... certainly a sipper; it does drink like a wort-y stout that was left out overnight in its glass

O: this would be my second time having this, and first in around 5 years ... was gonna share this with my brother but went at it alone, though I do feel it's worth buying once more for him to try

Deep black color with a thin head with short retention.
Aroma with predominant notes of cocoa and coffee beans.
Flavor with notes of heavy roasted coffee beans, earthy and piney hops and vanilla.
Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness and a roasted finish.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 10.9% is well disguised.
Delicious coffee notes that are somewhat hard to describe. So, it does make a difference the whole awkward process for making this unique coffee.

L -- 1,000 lumens passed through the glass reveals an immensely dark brew, with the slightest amount of light coming around the edges. The dark tan head dissipates very quickly, leaving minimal lacing
S -- Molasses, raisin, caramel, coffee, vanilla, and a touch of barrely alcohol
T -- Unexpectedly complex and engaging. Starts with a wave of fruit: plum, berry, banana, kumquat, lychee, and sweet apple. This is followed by robust dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, vanilla extract, toffee, barley malts, and molasses. Barely any booziness, which is pretty remarkable for 11%ABV
F -- Smooth, slick, and oily. Heavy mouthfeel, minimal carb. Long, fruity/smoky finish
O -- Definitely tastes like a kicked up version of Beer Geek Breakfast. The same fruitiness that drew me to that beer also draws me to this one. If only it weren't so damn pricey.... (~$12/12oz bottle)

Pours black. Thick, short, tan head that last a little while.

Smells roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and hints of dark fruit.

Taste chocolate and roasted malt. Fading fast to strong coffee, Light alcohol and prune hints. Finishes dry with a coffee linger. Medium to full body and creamy lower carbonation.

Poured from a 11.2 fl oz bottle into a snifter.
Appearance- pours a thick, black syrup forming a medium thick dark mocha head that recedes quickly to a very thin layer. Lacing is not a strength.
Smell - mouth watering dark and sweet chocolate!
Taste - dark chocolate syrup with hints of vanilla bean one robust coffee bean; absolutely delicious!
Feel - velvety smooth chocolate; not too sweet, not too bitter, fantastic!
Overall - about as good as it gets, right here. This is so well crafted that it doesn't need any tricks!

Got this at TWCP - Rock Hill.

Had this over a month ago, and I remember being blown away by it. It was one of the best imperial coffee stouts I have had.

This beer pours a deep black with a thin dark head. The aroma is dark and rich, with dark chocolate, raisin, cassis, cranberry, cappuccino, and cocoa. The coffee is far more rich and apparent in the flavor, starting sweet and chocolatey, and then becoming dark, espresso like and bitter. There are also notes of raisin, dried cranberry, black and red currant, and caramel. The mouthfeel is medium thick with small bubble carbonation. Overall this is an excellent beer, great depth, complexity, and intensity - all the flavor additions are well used. The mouthfeel is not overly rich, and the whole thing comes together nicely.
