Had this on my list for a while as a must try--very intrigued by the weasel component. Admittedly I'm not a huge fan of the ADIS but this was a great experience. Its jet black, malty and coffee and chocolate smells galore. The coffee taste isn't quite as strong as expected but its definitely delicious, nice and thick mouthfeel. Not sure how its 11%--not too boozy but leaves you feeling satisfied. When I'm in the mood (and my wallet is full) I will definitely reach for another.

Pours nearly completely black, with a small, fizzy head, disappearing soon, while leaving no lacing.

Has fantastic, multi-layered aromas of coffee flavors, creamy sweetness, deep roasted malts and bitter chocolate, accompanied by a burning alcohol layer. Very complex and pleasant, with coffee being the most dominant ingredient.

Toffeeish, earthy malts go along with distinct coffee flavors, which hit the palate in an incredible smooth, creamy fashion. Coffee then turns bitter, overcoming the milk chocolate note more and more. While the brew actually begins sweeter than expected, the sweetness doesn’t take over the whole palate, due to the rich coffee infusion. Also the coffee bitterness is very balanced, as a strong earth maltiness holds it at bay. The most surprising aspect is the incredible smoothness in this brew, making this the perfect pairing for e.g. a fruity chocolate cake, providing the creaminess for both, cake and brew. Alcohol is very well integrated in this complex tasting beer, adding to the bitter coffee sting, without being detectable on its own.

Very good stuff, super malty and syrupy with a slight coffee taste. It isn't the best Imperial Coffee Stout but it is one I would never turn down.
