Doin' it at Haven with my #1 bartender in Orange, CA.

...20 minutes later after having let this bad sucker properly warm up... Ok, and... aite, just aite. It's not "Starbucks bad," but it sure as hell ain't coffee from a civet bean. This sucker is more like your local hippie coffee shop; it definitely makes the cut, but is Raul trippin? Not at all.

The main man would love a thicker texture and more presence in the espresso department.

Holla, my children.

Picked up a bomber of this beer at the local grocery store for $11.99.

A- Pours a thick and viscous dark black color that comes out slowly. The head on this beer is a fantastic brown that reminds me of the head on coca cola. When held up to light this beer is opaque. Leaves some lacing on the glass as you drink it.

S- The smell is sweet as well as a little bit of bitter. Chocolate and espresso come forward. This beer smells powerful and delicious.

T- The taste is sweet but also well balanced with hops. Great deal of coffee and dark chocolate flavor.

M- This beer is actually a little bit more medium bodied than I had expected. It makes it very drinkable and delicious. Carbonation is light and it finished with bitter espresso flavors.

O- This beer was really fantastic. I loved every bit of it and cannot wait to have it again. It is one o those imperial stouts that you have to try if you are a fan of the style.

After having the yeti chocolate last night I was excited to try this version. Overall quite similar and both very good. Pours black with a velvet mocha head that leaves nice dark lace on the lace on the glass. Has a sweet milk chocolate smell to it that has burnt caramel and coffee notes. Taste very similar, upfront sweetness with a great smooth yet slightly bitter coffee notes in the back. Great consistecy and easily a beer i'd buy again
