Black with a great tan and extremely creamy head.

Very strong scents of coffee and cocoa in perfect harmony. I reminded me of tiramisu.

Amazing flavor of sweet chocolate and espresso witha touch of cinnamon. Slightly bitter finish, but more of a chocolate bitter than a burnt bitter. The aftertaste is a lingering sweetness.

Spot on mouthfeel, silky and smooth. The alcohol is present, as it should be, yet maintains a smooth quality. The entire beer is great, but the mouthfeel is my favorite aspect of it.

This is one of the more impressive Imperial Stouts out there and by far the most impressive beer I've had in a while. The only unfortunate part about it is the price tag, otherwise this holds it's own against with the rest of the best.

Delivered on all counts! Poured from 12 oz. bottle into tulip. Leaves a thick light brown head that lingers awhile over a sharp and deep black. Tons of roasted coffee in the aroma. The taste gives more hop bitterness than I expected, and its an incredible balance with all the power coffee/molasses flavors going on.

From notes.

Thanks to drseamus for sharing quite a while ago now.

A: Nice dark beer. Almost jet black. Coffee colored head. The beer poured like motor oil from the bottle.

S: Out of this world. One of the best smelling stouts ever. MASSIVE coffee nose. Not just coffee but the best smelling coffee ever and I am not even a coffee drinker. Quite a bit of chocolate in there as well. A touch of roast. But this is all about the coffee.

T: Wow. Massive coffee in the flavor as well. More chocolate that in the nose. As balanced as a beer can be with the super intense flavors here.

M: Super smooth. A little bit creamy but not as thick as you would think it would be. Which is a good thing and a bad thing. If anything a little bit more richness in the body would not hurt. That being said it was velvetty in my mouth.

D: Wow. Beer geek breakfast was a great beer and this took it to the next level. The price is high but it is a really nice treat every once in a while.

11.2 oz. bottle

Pours opaque pitch black with a frothy brown foam head. Smells like rich woody dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, black cherry, fig, plum, black grape, some molasses, dark caramel, brown sugar, oats, vanilla, roasted malts, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like rich, woody, nutty dark roast coffee, dark chocolate pudding, black cherry, fig, plum, black grapes, molasses, dark caramel, charred brown sugar, vanilla, oats, roasted malts, with spicy earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and smooth with low tingling carbonation. Overall a really great Vietnamese coffee imperial oatmeal stout.

22 oz. bottle from Green's, Ponce location, Atlanta, GA. Poured into a 12 oz. brandy snifter in increments.

Appearance: Pours a thick though perhaps not as thick as you'd think (courtesy of coffee oils, no doubt) inky black body, capped by a fizzy, multi-colored-though-generally-and-dominantly dark tan head, fizzy at first, but rocky and bubbly after an initial fast-fade. I have to imagine it would fade faster if not for a ridiculous amount of fast, spritzy carbonation, some of the fastest I've ever seen on a beer, really, zipping upwards and replenishing the fading tan finger-and-a-half mass. The lacing is magnificent, swooping up and down the sides of the snifter, dipping and diving and clumping.

Aroma: Very light and crisp, almost sort of like a freshly-picked, green coffee berry, or at the very most some sort of half-roast. Grassy, citrusy, and currant notes waft up, light and airy, wrapped in a barely-perceptible earthy, toasted package.

Taste: A remarkably refined and smooth-bodied taste, earthy and musty at the same time it's fruity and sweet. The coffee notes are remarkably clean, light and zippy with notes of smooth dirt, currants, fresh cut grass, and citrus overtones. Noticeably lacking, of course, are any sort of harsh or bitter "coffee"-esque astringencies. The oatmeal adds a slight wholesome presence, and these two - in conjunction with the rest of the malt bill, which lends a few hints of dark fruit, toast, and faint bitter cocoa notes - interplay well with one another. A very unique and enjoyable flavor profile.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and slick from the oatmeal while also oily and slightly crisp from the coffee, with a light, spritzy body courtesy of all the carbonation that doesn't belie its alcohol content or its malt bill. Still somehow remarkably even, though, so kudos.

Drinkability: Well that was quite an experience. A 10.9% stout isn't the most drinkable of beers, but this one was extremely pleasant. A coffee beer that doesn't taste at all like your trad- ... wait, what? WHERE did the coffee come from? That's not funny, dude, don't even joke about that sort of shit. Oh come ON.

1 pt., .9oz bottle, 2011
Hunahpu's snifter

A: Pours completely pitch black in color.  Initially a half finger of dark tan head that ends up dissipating fairly quickly into a ring around the edges of the glass. I definitely get some alcohol feet when I swirl it around.  Some darker lacing bits.

S: Deep dark chocolate.  Espresso like coffee notes.  Rich dark fruit hints.  Dark cherry.  Deep roasted grains.

T: On the tip of the tongue, I get dark roast coffee.  Delicious dark roast coffee bitterness.  That bitterness leads to an amazing dark rich cocoa flavor.  Lavish bitter chocolate.  Cake like flavor.  Decadent for certain.  Richness comes from the outside of the mouth to the inside.  It really grows.  Prickly carbonation that flows over the tongue. 

M: Full bodied.  But it's very much pleasing, not cloying.  Carbonation really helps with this.  Coats the mouth with flavor.

O: A+.  Just an amazing beer.  I was actually thinking that it would suck or not live up to the hype.
