330 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 5/13/2016. Pours pitch black color with a small dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, nutty dark roasted coffee, caramel, toffee, toasted oats, dark bread, marshmallow, and molasses; with lighter notes of vanilla, cream, smoke, dark fruit, herbal, wood, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, nutty dark roasted coffee, caramel, toffee, toasted oats, dark bread, marshmallow, and molasses; with lighter notes of vanilla, cream, smoke, dark fruit, herbal, wood, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/woody hop and roast malt/coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, nutty dark roasted coffee, caramel, toffee, toasted oats, dark bread, marshmallow, molasses, light vanilla/dark fruit, herbal, wood, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light dryness from roast/hop bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and fairly full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky, and lightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 10.9%. Overall this is an incredible imperial coffee oatmeal stout! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to sip on for the big ABV. Very unique/intense on coffee complexity and awesome balance with the base oatmeal stout. A highly enjoyable offering.

Poured into a Teku. A nearly opaque dark brown color with a foamy and large tan head that receeded quickly. The aroma was somewhat muted: freshly ground coffee, bread, and roasted malt. The taste was much better: bitter up front with a bit of floral hops, followed with rich chocolate, toast, coffee, and faint cherries. A creamy, robust body with a silky feel. There was a nice warming on the end signaling the alcohol, but it wasn't boozy. Very nice.

330ml bottle poured into a snifter.

Jet inky black in color, the pour gradually forms up very thick tan foamy head that very well retains itself with very good retention before slowly subsiding to an everlasting effervescence film on the surface and leaving lots of lacing patch and spot on the glass-side.

Very nice coffee aroma, it is like espresso, black coffee, or even mocha with no any astringency or sourness. Chocolate in kind of dark and creamy milky as well as cocoa powder, licorice can also be sensed together with dark fruits in kind of plum and black cherry. Malt is also there with big breadiness of dark bread, roasted, some smoke, toasted biscuit, vanilla, and caramel while hop with subtle floral scent. The aroma is almost flawless for non-barrel aging Imperial Stout.

The more the beer settles itself, the more deliciousness that you will get, so, enjoy it slowly. It is still coffee to dominate the taste buds. The coffee profile is very intense and tasty with only slight astringency from roasted malt. Chocolate and cocoa powder too as well as solid malt bill with notes of dark bread, toasted biscuit, roasted, some smoke, vanilla, and caramel yet with the smoothness from oat. Apart from that, it also provides the suggestion of licorice and dark fruits to add some complexity to the flavor structure. The end is all those flavors to wrap up and nicely mingle together along with a slight hop bitterness trait.

Full body with some stickiness but not cloying, very smooth through the mouthfeel from some crisp and some lively carbonation, it is not that much but it is proper to carry all the things well. Finish is very dry and pleasant.

Super tasty and delicate brew, I have to stop myself to not quaffing it too fast. The coffee profile here is very rich, prominent, and refined that is also being nicely complement by great chocolate and roasted character. Alcohol is quite hidden underneath the coffee greatness which only some poke through once it is warm.

Bought a bottle at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow. Beer pours with a pure black, oil-like appearance with very thin dark brown lacing on the sides and very little head. Full aromas of chocolate, coffee, alcohol, and vanilla. The taste followed the nose but definitely sensed some dark fruit and cherry flavors being more pronounced in the aftertaste. Lightly creamy with a medium carbonation. Overall, fantastic aromas with a spectacular flavor dynamic.
